Adopting a multicloud strategy means leveraging the strengths of multiple cloud providers – including on-prem and edge cloud technologies – to acquire capabilities that best meet your business and mission requirements. For Federal agencies the rewards can be huge – including more secure, cost-effective and agile IT environments and an optimized workforce. But managing multiple clouds comes with challenges and complexities and the path to multicloud optimization requires a strong strategy, the right investments and patience. With this in mind, many are left wondering is the goal is attainable? And is there really a path to get there?” Tune into this panel, to hear from topic experts on the challenges and complexities they are facing with multicloud, as well as the solutions they have found to overcome them. What strategies would these topic experts recommend to best optimize your multi-cloud environment? How does the multi-cloud affect workforce optimization?

Panel: Security and Compliance: Looking at the Effects of Multi-Cloud in the Federal Government

Whether by choice or by chance, many agencies are already using multiple cloud technologies for different purposes. This doesn’t always mean that they have a multicloud strategy to optimize those investments, especially with the added complexity that managing multicloud presents to IT and security teams. Every agency has various types of data requiring different levels of security and compliance. Additionally, there are regulated government security and compliance standards like FedRAMP, NIST, DoD SRG Impact Levels and more that must be met. So how can agencies ensure they are setting the right security and governance policies as they transition to new cloud environments? And how can mutlicloud modernization help shore up security and improve cyber posture?

Tune into this panel to hear from topic experts on what multicloud modernation means for security and compliance now and in the future. What the best strategies are for optimizing throughout the cloud lifestyle. How to help IT and security teams deal with the added complexities of managing multiple cloud environments. And how multicloud modernization is a key part of transforming cyber posture from defensive to an offensive strategy.
