The cybersecurity forecast for Federal agencies is cloudy, threatening, and unpredictable.
Collectively, agencies need the help of Federal INFOSEC professionals to defend the personal and private information they create, collect, and store. In response, agencies are collaborating as never before to develop and share cybersecurity standards, threat information, response strategies, and methods to harden future systems.
This program brought attendees up to date on the latest guidance to help ensure cyber-compliance of agency personnel and systems. The briefing faculty focused on current guidelines issued by the NIST Computer Security Division, as well as recommendations from affinity agencies and organizations working to assist continuing efforts of Federal IT professionals to integrate and comply with the range of security mandates levied on their daily operations.
Attendees at this program learned not only the latest requirements, but also how to help your organization to stay ahead of emerging threats, leverage available resources, and implement effective recovery programs when needed.
