The insider threat—whether unintentional or malicious—remains one of the most elusive cyber risks. Rather than merely defending the perimeter, agencies need to gain better insight into activity inside their networks and at the endpoints. In this session, Joseph Kirschbaum, Director for Defense Capabilities and Management at the Government Accountability Office, will discuss strategies for identifying and mitigating insider threats.
The public or commercial cloud continues to become a more significant part of government agencies’ IT strategies. In some cases, it’s even supporting critical systems. In this webcast, Michael Fairless, Branch Chief at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, will discuss best practices in leveraging the commercial cloud for a growing range of core IT operations.

The federal IT environment has evolved dramatically in recent years. In particular, networks have become increasingly complex as more and more devices have been connected and the line between the physical and cyber world has blurred, creating a much larger attack surface. With that in mind, NIST has made significant revisions to SP 800-53, which provides a catalog of security controls for all federal information systems. In this webcast, Ron Ross, a NIST Fellow and a leading voice for cybersecurity in the federal government, will discuss the key changes to 800-53 and how they can help agencies do a better job of protecting their critical systems.
By 2025, Millennials are projected to make up 75% of the total workforce. Agencies have been adapting their processes, policies and environments to match the Millennial culture, but are they prepared to handle technology practices? Michael Crouse, Senior Director Business Solutions, Advanced Data & Insider Threat Security at Forcepoint, powered by Raytheon will discuss why the growing presence of millennials in the federal workforce represent a unique cyber threat - and how agencies can respond.
Data is vital to the quality of healthcare—and the more readily that data is accessible, the more valuable it is. In this webcast, public sector health IT officials from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), will discuss strategies for making research and trend data accessible to healthcare professionals and/or researchers working across organizational boundaries, and supporting innovative practices.
Federal agencies are at a crossroads with respect to their infrastructure. They need to make plans to migrate to Windows 10 and take full advantage of its new features and ensure tighter security. Agencies need to develop and execute on a strategy to ensure a smooth migration. An efficient and effective Windows 10 migration should be conducted in four phases: perform a complete and accurate inventory; actual migration to all network endpoints; repeat phase 1 and 2 to remediate any failures; and adjust configurations and settings to enable new features.
Enterprise Cloud is a necessity because of the complexity of agency requirements. However, having a mix of private and public cloud solutions comes with its own challenges. In this webcast, Robert Bohn, Cloud Computing Program Manager, National Institute of Standards and Technology, will discuss how agencies can extend this vision of the hybrid cloud to create a seamless cloud environment for hosting a wide variety of IT services.
Business and government HR departments are leading the digital charge, looking for cost-efficient tools to remove paper from recruiting, onboarding and signing processes throughout the employee lifecycle. Join us for a FREE one hour webinar to learn how organizations like the U.S. Census Bureau are using FedRAMP compliant e-signatures to modernize the government HR function.
The need for new healthcare facilities is increasing. Yet, current federal facility design, cost, construct, and operate processes contain fundamental inefficiencies that can lead to escalations in cost and time. Projects have stalled due to multiple design revisions, cost overruns, and failed execution. That’s where Building Information Modeling (BIM) comes in. BIM is a solution for the construction and operations of facilities that serves as a process catalyst, delivering insight and improving team interoperability with tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure.
Government agencies want to realize the benefits of cloud, but they have deep requirements on data security, privacy, and reliability. Unfortunately, previous approaches to cloud storage came with significant risks, including poor reliability, data loss, and vendor lock-in. This is no longer the case. In this webcast, experts in cloud storage will discuss new approaches that mitigate these risks and lay the foundation for enterprise-grade cloud services.
