Agencies with FISMA High workloads have struggled to take advantage of the cost savings and flexibility of true cloud offerings. Now you can address your most stringent regulatory compliance requirements with AWS GovCloud (US). AWS GovCloud (US) has received a Provisional Authority to Operate (P-ATO) from the Joint Authorization Board (JAB) under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) High Baseline.
Cyber threats grow more pervasive and more complex each year, rendering traditional endpoint security measures less effective. For government agencies, cybersecurity represents a greater challenge with aging legacy systems providing mission-critical support. To remain diligent, how can agencies ensure the security and privacy of their citizen data? Increasingly, cyber experts say that strong security begins with the continuous protection of the actual data. Encrypting data—whether at rest or in transit—ensures that even if a breach does occur, the data will be rendered useless to the criminal.
Cloud, mobility and related trends are changing how agencies provide employees with access to information and services. Slowly but surely, the traditional agency network is evolving into more of a shared environment. The question, now, is how do agencies secure that environment? In this webcast, Jim Quinn, the lead systems engineer for the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program at the Department of Homeland Security, will discuss how CDM is evolving to help agencies strengthen their security posture and adapt to this new reality.
The Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation program is not an end in itself, but a means to better security. In this webcast, Willie Crenshaw, Program Executive for IT Security Risk Management and CDM at NASA, will discuss how NASA is integrating CDM with other security-related programs to get a more holistic view of what is happening on its networks.
We know stakeholders, students, and citizens are all demanding more, putting even greater strain on an organization’s infrastructure and expertise. There’s no “one size fits all” solution to optimize data center efficiency. Can hyperconvergence help?
