DevOps & Its Increasing Importance

With many older systems in place, the government is one sector that could use DevOps the most. However, like many industries, there are often challenges adopting new ways of doing things. That being said, this panel will focus on roadblocks towards DevOp adoption and addressing how to overcome them. A few questions to ask are what are the challenges to Devops adoption; What are steps that help make DevOps a reality? Join us for this discussion as topic experts will discuss IT and cybersecurity as it relates to DevOps adoption on the government level.

Federal Agencies & Data Preparedness

As cloud computing advancement makes data more accessible than ever, Federal agencies are driving improvements in services, efficiency of operations, and effectiveness of government programs. The question remains, are agencies ready to support a workforce fully armed with data, or could they experience too much of a good thing? Are there obstacles that are preventing agencies from making better use of their data? Are we ready to move from Data- Ready to DevOps?
Join us for this discussion as topic experts will discuss the importance of data-ops in an increasingly data driven world.

Are You Confident in Your Software? The State of the Software Supply Chain

What lurks in your software? Recent research from Sonatype 8th Annual State of the Software Supply Chain Report has highlighted the uneven attention that various vulnerabilities receive. More widely reported vulnerabilities like log4j see high remediation rates (while still falling well short of 100% remediation), while other vulnerabilities often plateau at less than 50% remediation rates. Dr. Stephen Magill, VP of Product Innovation will discuss how software bills of materials (SBOMs), recently suggested for inclusion in federal purchasing guidelines, can help provide transparency into which applications are harboring outdated or unsafe components.

Join this discussion to learn more:
The 2022 State of the software supply chain findings
The vitality of software bills of materials
The steps to take to protect federal software supply chains

Legislative Cybersecurity: What New Laws Mean for Software Devs

The Current Administration issued Executive Order 14028 to improve the nation’s cybersecurity posture. This EO signaled a major step in improving software security at federal agencies and establishing cybersecurity as a priority for the U.S government. It’s important to look at an agency’s progression with implementing the Executive Order’s suggestions from its inception. There has been significant progress, but where an agency started drastically changes their timeline.. In this discussion, we will focus on EO compliance, how software providers can be proactive and why it’s important to embrace the EO. Join us as topic experts will discuss the growing importance of cybersecurity on the federal level.
