Emerging Technology Tech Talks
In 2022 Work will never be the same – and perhaps – thank goodness. Three insights pulled from the chaos of travel to apply to your Digital Modernizations plans in 2022.
The idea that digital modernization is a continuous journey vs a final destination is well established. As we cautiously restart our in person engagement to reconnect and rejuvenate our relationships with customers and each other, we thought it may be interesting to explore the analogous lessons learned between the chaos of travel and adventure and the conditions facing line of business and technology executives. Join Red Hat’s National Technical Advisor and Acting Chief Architect Kevin Tunks for a brief talk sharing three insights to apply to your Digital Modernizations plans in 2022.

Panel: Roadmap to Digital Transformation
The term “digital transformation” is meant to spur change. To optimize the technology and human resources involved in delivery of Citizen Services, Federal Agencies are embarking upon digital transformation journeys — modernizing IT applications and infrastructure. How are governments planning for and executing upon this transformation and what barriers do they face in completing this journey? What does it look like for a government agency to fully modernize? What best practices do these panelists recommend to achieving that?
Tune in as panelists dive into 2022 Digital Transformation planning, what it will look like and what it means for their agencies’ Digital Transformation Journey.

Security That Doesn’t Impede Productivity
In the move toward digital modernization, many Federal IT teams are challenged with the decision between meeting security compliance and or providing a great user experience. Even worse, efficiencies have come to a halt as teams spend most of their cycles trying to defend the network.When it comes to stopping cyberattacks, it’s time to leave the “Whack-a-Mole” strategy where it belongs – in an arcade. In this Tech Talk, Zscaler’s Chief Technologist explains how you can transform your agency’s security posture and prevent future risks while fully meeting federal compliance and ensuring better user experiences.

Fast-Track Your Digital Transformation with a Modern Enterprise Identity Program
A foundation of Zero Trust is identity. With the dissolution of the traditional network perimeter, identity has become the primary and most critical line of defense. Within any identity strategy, privileged access and users must be treated as a special use case. It’s estimated that approximately 80% of hacking-related security breaches involve the misuse of privileged credentials. Join BeyondTrust for a Tech Talk to understand how our Universal Privilege Management platform enables digital transformation and trusted access across your agency by securing privilege across every identity, user, session, and asset.

Panel: Intelligent Data Management: Next Step in Digital Transformation Journey
The evolving digital landscape means government organizations are forced to look ahead – to move forward, and to keep up with the changes to better serve the citizens they support. Digital transformation efforts have been transforming organizations for years and now is the time to leverage data management initiatives to maximize and get the most out of this ‘journey’.
Like most businesses and other organizations around the world today, government agencies are seeking to reduce costs, realize operational efficiencies and deliver better services by using software as a service (SaaS) applications and other cloud solutions to digitally transform the way they operate. Effective data management and governance require leadership support. Being able to augment the right data at the right time requires not only data management but intelligent data management.
Do you have a strategy in place to access and get value from your most important data, to protect the data? Tune in to learn how digitally mature your organization is and what your next move should be.
