Visionary Keynote Briefing on Cloud Smart

Cloud Smart encompasses several key components of IT modernization including security, procurement, and workforce. Historically, policies have isolated these areas, creating confusion and a misunderstanding of requirements, mission, and needs. However, they are deeply linked, and require an integrated, interdisciplinary approach, rather than a one-size-fits-all approach to IT modernization. Cloud Smart combines these disciplines together into a cohesive strategy that provides savings, security, and faster delivery of mission-serving solutions.

Fireside Chat: State of FedRAMP 

In December 2011, the federal government established FedRAMP to provide a cost-effective and risk-based approach to cloud adoption for executive departments and agencies. This included the development of a risk management framework based on FISMA requirements and NIST 800-53 by which cloud service offerings can be assessed and authorized by federal agencies. Given that FedRAMP is a rigorous cloud security program, there is increased interest from state and local governments in leveraging or requiring FedRAMP for their own cloud-based information systems. This Fireside Chat will explore the current state of FedRamp.

Collaboration Session 1: Cloud Smart and Impact on Government Cloud Adoption

OMB’s new Cloud Smart policy is a shift from the Cloud First strategy. This session will focus on the ways in which the Cloud Smart policy will impact government cloud adoption to include newly introduced challenges or improvements.

Collaboration Session 2: Challenges to Cloud Enabling Security

As industry migrates work load to the Cloud, cyber security organizations struggle to maintain their prized Common Operating Picture (COP). But cloud-based security tools can be different from traditional tools in ways that may both enable or disable Standard Operating Procedure (SOP). Workload engineers are not well versed in describing perceived threats to their environments and Security Operations Center (SOC) personnel are not well versed in cloud security tools. Consequently, the varied lexicon driven by the multitude of cloud offerings in the marketplace can cultivate coverage gaps in defensive posture after migration. This break out session addresses the challenges faced by government organizations and their industry partners in maintaining or improving Defensive Cyber Operations (DCO) capabilities as the shift to cloud computing is made. Government leaders and industry professionals will share their experiences, challenges, and wins in this area.

Collaboration Session 3: Cloud-enabled Rapid Development and DevSecOps

Modern software delivery practices (e.g., DevOps) rely heavily on cloud services to enable rapid testing, patching, feature enhancement, and other aspects of software development. As such, the challenge facing the government is not only how to adopt cloud but also how to use it to enable modern software practices. This session will focus on recommendations, common pitfalls, and other challenges with using cloud services in modern software delivery.

Collaboration Session 5: Zero Trust and The Cloud

With growing adoption of information technology (IT) modernization, such as outsourcing intranet services, large-scale migration of applications to Cloud, and growing mobile workforce, enterprise perimeters are being extended to new and different locations. These locations introduce additional attack surfaces for an adversary to exploit and compromise. Zero Trust Architectures (ZTA) recognizes
this shift with the deployment of more granular perimeters closer to protected resources (e.g., assets in Cloud). With ZTA, access to protected resources is adaptive and based on multiple factors regardless of a user/device location. This session focuses on ZTA benefits for enterprise security and opportunities for securing Cloud assets with ZTA. Government leaders and industry professionals will also share their ZTA perspectives, challenges, and near-term recommendations.
