Panel: Defense in Depth: Cyber Strategies that Support Innovation

As Federal agencies moved quickly in this past year to put innovative technology solutions into place, the need to strengthen their cybersecurity capabilities and solve increasing cybersecurity challenges have grown even more important. Aligning agency cyber strategies and securely enabling technology infrastructure are even more crucial when coupled with the accelerated transition to remote and hybrid work environments. Agencies have been forced to reevaluate their technology needs and how they can best achieve IT modernization while managing cyber risk in this evolving space. Agency IT boundaries today are blurring with competing demands, from cloud adoption to the expansion of requirements at the edge of the network, and there is an ever-increasing need for the broadest set of visibility, control, and security orchestration tools. Join this panel discussion as leading executives explore securing Federal networks today and in the future, planning for the evolving cyber threat landscape and building a strategy to implement best practices when securing a proliferation of devices and data across networks and in remote locations.

Hear subject matter experts dive into how they took innovative steps to reevaluate their agencies’ technology needs and strengthened their agencies’ use of data. We will delve into the current state of technology, use cases, best practices and risk frameworks associated with cybersecurity at the state and local level in light of the evolving cyberthreat landscape.
