Panel: The Future of Work

Today’s workforce is vastly different from the workforce of May 2019. Since the Pandemic hit in March of 2020, the workforce quickly had to shift to a remote and hybrid workforce. Emerging technologies are evolving at a faster pace than ever before, especially since the workforce made the pivot to a telework environment. Throughout this panel topic experts will discuss the new and evolving technologies that are driving real change and innovation in the public sector. Topic experts will discuss the future of the Federal workforce, and the emerging technology that will help it get there. How has the shift to telework given the opportunity to reskill the Federal workforce? What emerging technologies have helped with this reskilling process?

Panel: The CISO Approach: Implementing Zero Trust Within the Federal Government

Implementing Zero Trust takes time and effort: it cannot be achieved overnight. For many networks, existing infrastructure can be leveraged and integrated to incorporate Zero Trust concepts, but the transition to a mature Zero Trust architecture often requires additional capabilities to obtain the full benefits of a Zero Trust environment. Tune into this panel to hear from Chief Information Security Officers on the best practices for implementing Zero Trust within a government agency. What best strategies do they have for implementing and applying Zero Trust principles within an agency? What does this look like within a Federal agency? What challenges have they experienced while implementing and applying these principles within their agency? What solutions did they come up with to overcome these challenges?

Panel: Cutting Edge Technology Applications in Federal Government

Post-pandemic, a new future is emerging – one where work can often be done from anywhere. A more virtual workforce opens opportunities for expanded recruiting, more solutions for managing, protecting, and archiving data, and overall higher efficiency. As employees bring their own environment to work, leaders will need to rethink policies, IT modernization, security, and training to integrate them. Here thought leaders will discuss the importance of bringing cutting edge technologies, such as quantum, drones, blockchain, and more into Federal space. What role do these technologies play in the future of work? Which applications can best enable and improve agency IT modernization? What are some experienced and perceived challenges in this process?

Panel: Federal CDO Panel: The Importance of Data Governance and Management within the Federal Government

Data is an increasingly fundamental asset in both public and private industries. Federal CDOs face a significant challenge to securely provide data to those who need it, and enable access to the right information by the right people to execute actionable deeds. Tune into the panel as Chief Data Officers dive into the actual meaning, significance, and implications of the Federal Data Strategy to Federal agencies.

CDOs give their insights on the best practices for developing a data governance strategy in today’s hybrid world. How is this shaping decision making and policies? What pitfalls, if any, will agencies want to avoid as they look to evolve their policies and processes in relation to data security? Our panel of experts will discuss the best ways to execute a successful data governance strategy that allows agencies to collect, manage, store and catalog government data, while also identifying what data should be purged.
