For federal, state and local government cybersecurity executives, the mission to detect and eliminate hackers on their expanding digital networks has always been a fluid exercise. In the last year, their work has become even more challenging.

As the pandemic pushed agencies to remote work, they leaned even more on cloud computing, mobile and remote access capabilities, and the attack surface has become more diffuse and vulnerable.

Sly, determined nation-state and criminal adversaries, armed with increasingly sophisticated techniques, have dramatically increased the cybersecurity stakes for government.

A government-wide breach in 2020 thrust supply chain threats to the forefront, starkly illustrating perimeter defenses are no longer adequate, as adversaries exploit less-visible security gaps. Tying down protections for government acquisition processes and infrastructure, and rethinking security tools, services and processes are crucial to blunt the effort of ever-more cunning adversaries.

This FCW Workshop will feature government and industry cyber experts who will share the lessons they've learned and the results they've been able to drive at key federal agencies. 

Please join us for this practical, solutions-oriented virtual event.  Attendees will come away with an improved ability to:

  • Identify the risks in the supply chain and how to manage them
  • Leverage security operations-as-a-service
  • Understand the challenges of mobile device and cross-domain security
  • Manage Advanced Persistent Threat evolution
  • Deploy a zero trust framework successfully
