Gone in 60 Seconds – Protecting Mobile Data
85% of all mobile apps leak sensitive data, but it doesn’t have to be this way! Achieving mobile ATO takes months, but it doesn’t have to be this way! In this fast moving session, we will hit the top 3 practical ways to operationalize secure mobile apps at scale.

Panel: Making Mobility a Secure and Manageable Experience
Mobile devices have revolutionized the way we do work, enabling on-demand access
to services and information anytime from anywhere. In the United States, there are an
estimated 200 million smart mobile devices and two billion such devices worldwide. These
devices do not exist in a vacuum. Modern mobility brings along an ecosystem of networks,
operating systems, mobile applications and their supporting cloud services. 5G brings with it a new ecosystem of edge computing, cloud access, O-RAN, slicing, and a new set of use-cases, that will enhance performance, and also add to the complexities of mobile security. While 3GPP standards have introduced enhancements to security, the federal government needs to do its share to protect its data and access.
Join this breakfast event to hear experts discuss security features for mobile tools,
technologies, products, 5G, and services; and examine how agencies can improve on
enterprise-wide mobile security strategy and policy.

Panel: The Impact of 5G on Cloud Services
5G technology will bring major improvements to the cloud computing world. This is
due to the fact that most technology innovations can be more efficient when cloud-dependent. 5G, in turn, improves that integration with its low to zero latency, making for smoother communications. Making use of the cloud with 5G connections will boost performance of federal agencies. Cloud-based products and services are expected to become more reliable, faster, and efficient. These innovations will, in turn, accelerate all cloud applications.
Tune into this panel to hear topic experts speak on 5G and the cloud. What lessons have they learned while working with 5G and the cloud? What challenges have they faced while
modernizing their agency’s cloud services? What best strategies did they have to put in place to overcome these challenges?

Panel: Creating a More Secure Supply Chain Using 5G
5G is different from previous communications technologies because it enables higher data rates and lower latency while increasing reliability. This leap in technology will have transformative impacts on the U.S. economy by making artificial intelligence, augmented reality, industrial automation, massive device to device communications, and other unprecedented technologies commonplace in our everyday lives, in both personal and business applications.
We are now living in the era of the ‘Supply Chain-of-One’ where consumers demand personalized products and services delivered with minimal lead times, at lower costs to a location of their choice. This has been driving organizational requirements for real time information, decentralized decision making, integrated systems and capabilities focusing on customer experience rather than just product functionalities. Leveraging these technological capabilities is easier said than done as the technology landscape itself is rapidly evolving.
Join us for this panel as government and industry experts delve into the best and most efficient ways to integrate 5G and create a more convenient and efficient supply chain.
