This Federal Computer Week Solutions Seminar will address data security for government enterprises—wherever it resides—in an agency data center or database, hosted in a cloud environment, or in motion across networks and mobile devices. It is essential to understand data vulnerabilities in each of these modes, as well as how to address them in the context of your computing infrastructures.
Attendees will learn how to engage in effective data protection, including discussion of:
Strategies for data defense today and how agencies are improving their situational awareness
Compliance, risk mitigation, and data governance considerations
How to fortify your organizational data loss prevention program
Current and forthcoming guidance to help government protect the information it manages
Public sector case examples to illustrate data defense in dynamic threat environments
Technical options for data protection--inside organizational perimeters, hosted in clouds, and in use by mobile applications
The impact of “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) strategies on agency data integrity and how to secure future operations.
