  • Cybersecurity in a Hyper-Connected World: What's New with NIST 800-53

    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. 07/11/2017

  • The Emerging Cyber Challenges of the Millennial Workforce

    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. 06/29/2017

  • Modernize Your Data Center Infrastructure

    Government agencies continue to face pressure to maintain their IT infrastructure with shrinking budgets. Somehow they must also prepare for the future of software-defined computing. Those adopting a converged IT infrastructure are better able to reduce costs, increase flexibility, achieve greater scalability and realize an IT blueprint that establishes a foundation for future software-defined computing. This type of converged infrastructure also helps agencies add the capacity they need—more powerful compute processing, higher speed networking and greater storage density—yet also reduce the cost and complexity of systems management through unified software management tools. 06/15/2017
