Modern connectivity has transformed government, but also dramatically expanded the attack surface. Agency missions bring unique challenges, and today's adversarial activities are anything but rudimentary.

An effective cyber defense strategy depends on finely honed analytics and automation tailored to the network and the mission. And that, in turn, demands a deep understanding of both those mission needs and IT environments -- and the ability to quickly evolve with the operational environment. Shifting focus from external network defenses to emphasis on protecting data and particularly all who can access the data—is one of several new strategies to strengthen defenses.

Please join us for this in-depth look at how leading agencies are working to counter both internal and external threats, and how custom analytics can better defend against advanced adversarial activities.

Event attendees will learn:

  • Why off-the-shelf solutions can miss advanced adversarial activities
  • Where intelligent automation can bring the greatest benefits
  • How to rapidly tailor advanced analytics to meet mission needs
  • What the latest research suggests about future threats
