  • Health IT: Strategies for More Effective Use of the Cloud

    Given the complexity of their IT environments, most healthcare organizations are moving toward a hybrid cloud environment, with some applications and data appropriate for commercial cloud services, and others better suited for on premise systems. The challenge is arriving at the right model. 11/01/2017

  • Best Practices in Implementing the Cybersecurity Framework

    Although “The Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity” originally was intended primarily for organizations protecting the electric grid, bridges and other elements of the nation’s critical infrastructure, it quickly was recognized as a valuable tool that agencies could use in protecting their IT infrastructure. In this webcast, Jeff Marron, IT Specialist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, will provide agencies with insights into the framework and how to implement it effectively in their IT environments. 10/26/2017

  • Taking IT to the Edge: Delivering on the Promise of IoT

    Agencies across the federal government are primed to take advantage of emerging solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT). In many cases, agencies already have countless networked devices embedded in their field operations, providing an opportunity to gain new insights and to create new services. But to realize the full benefits of IoT, agencies need to push more intelligence to the edge of their operations. In this webcast, Jeffrey Voas, a computer scientist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, will discuss steps that agencies can take to turn IoT into operational intelligence and better decisions. 10/12/2017

  • CUI and NIST SP 800-171 Compliance: What Agencies and Contractors Should Know

    The December 31, 2017 deadline for protecting Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and complying with the NIST Special Publication 800-171 standard is fast approaching. Organizations must ensure they are protecting sensitive government information now and into the future, and are accountable for the information they process, store, and transmit in their information systems. Join us for a discussion on strategies to help federal agencies and contractors meet the main CUI requirements as established by NIST SP 800-171 and DFARS 252.204-7012. 10/10/2017

  • Scaling Security Workflows for Government Agencies

    For most federal agencies dealing with increased security threats, limiting machine-data collection is not an option. But faced with finite IT budgets, few agencies can continue to absorb the high costs of scaling high-end network attached storage (NAS) or moving to and expanding a block-based storage footprint. During this webcast, you’ll learn about more cost-effective solutions to support large-scale machine-data ingestion and fast data access for security analytics. 09/28/2017

  • NETCENTS-2 Makes Good Business Sense

    The Defense Department’s focus on net-centric war fighting has sharpened over the past decade. Along the way, its IT contract vehicles have become more important as a way to focus technology on that goal. Network Centric Solutions-2 (NETCENTS-2) is a critical contract vehicle to help the Air Force acquire technology tailored to its specific mission needs.

  • Army's Next Contract Move

    As technology continues to evolve, contract vehicles also have to change to keep up with the needs of government agencies in how they procure technology. The Army’s IT Enterprise Solution (ITES) contracts are a good example of that; especially the hardware-specific contract ITES-3H.

  • Cloud Security Evolves

    As cloud becomes an integral part of an agency’s enterprise, security becomes even more crucial. Learn how the cloud creates a new dynamic between agencies, users, and vendor partners with regards to their cybersecurity roles and responsibilities, and why there must be transparency in how these roles are carried out.

  • Give Cloud its Due

    Cloud is an integral part of an agency's modernization plan today. As agencies begin to move to modernize systems and consolidate data centers, they are looking to the cloud to improve the flexibility, efficiency, and scalability of their operations - as well as how to sustain cloud in the long term. Download this informative report focused on a recent cloud event to hear how different agencies are saying farewell to their data center, evaluating their cloud options and communicating with their team to successfully transition to the cloud.

  • Maximize the Cloud

    In order to get the most out of cloud, agencies need a holistic plan that considers not only the technology, but also the cultural, policy, and funding issues associated with this fundamental shift. Read this one-page paper for some quick expert tips on leveraging cloud the right way.
