Streamlining Security Authorization through OSCAL Automation

In partnership with   

June 1, 2023, 1:30 PM – 2:30 AM ET

Federal agencies must undergo the complex and laborious process of security authorization to operate (ATO) for each information system (IS) in accordance with the Federal Information Security Modernization Act (FISMA). Currently, most agencies rely on manual documentation processes. These include popular productivity tools to capture the applicable security controls and the status/plans of implementation of the controls for each IS as well as an enterprise Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) tool for documentation repository and ATO tracking purposes. This webinar will focus on the opportunities and current challenges in leveraging OSCAL and integrating OSCAL-based ATO processes gradually into agency FISMA processes.

Zero Trust Implementation: A How-To Guide

In partnership with   

June 8, 2023, 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM ET

With all of the components of Zero Trust, there are various models and theories that an organization can use to strengthen their cybersecurity practices. The CISA Zero Trust Maturity Model and the DoD Zero Trust Strategy are only two examples of frameworks that provide guidance on implementing Zero Trust security principles within an organization. Both models emphasize the steps it takes to achieve total Zero Trust, but they differ in some of their strategies. Understanding the features of these frameworks, and other models, will help organizations develop effective strategies for implementing ZT. Tune in to hear from cybersecurity experts from across the Federal government discuss what models and theories they follow, as well as how these two foundational ZT models impact their security practices.

Protecting Critical Infrastructure with Quantum-Resistant Cybersecurity

In partnership with

June 22, 2023, 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM ET

Modern cybersecurity measures such as post-quantum cryptography (PQC) and zero trust architecture (ZTA) are essential to protect U.S. critical infrastructure and ensure a resilient nation. And with a flurry of comprehensive initiatives coming from the Executive Branch, Pentagon, NSA, and NIST, it can be challenging for U.S. government CIOs and CISOs to determine where to prioritize resources. But PQC and ZTA aren’t mutually exclusive: effective, agile cryptography forms the basis of zero trust principles and eases PQC adoption.

Elevating Benefits Management: Redefining Customer Experience

In partnership with

NSM-10 and the Transition to Post Quantum Cryptography – Dylan Presman, Office of the National Cyber Director

The Office of the National Cyber Director (ONCD), the Executive Office of the President’s newest policy office, has extensive responsibilities under National Security Memorandum-10. NSM-10 outlines the Administration’s plans to take advantage of the opportunities offered by emerging quantum technologies while simultaneously protecting the nation from threats posed by quantum technology. On the threat side, NSM-10 recognizes that while sufficiently mature quantum computers are probably still 20 years away, most classified information requires protection for 25 years and sensitive personal data can have a lifespan that is even longer. As such, NSM-10 requires Federal agencies begin their transition to quantum safe cryptographic systems. As a first step, NSM-10 requires Federal Agencies to inventory their most critical cryptographic systems by May 4. The EOP will release specific instructions to Federal Agencies on inventorying cryptographic systems and developing cost estimates for this transition, by mid-February.
