Event Overview

There is plenty to focus on in the cybersecurity business—yet so much time and attention is focused on the ever-changing threat landscape and the tactics of cyber-adversaries, that some overlook a fundamental target that requires vigilant oversight—data defense. This program will bring together information technologists and cybersecurity professionals to discuss the critically important topic of reliable data security for Federal Government operations.

Join your colleagues to learn and share information about the expanding technical challenges for managing data today and into the future. Since most public sector enterprises already have been hacked, penetrated, or breached to one degree or another, how can agency and industry professionals collaborate to use their collective experience to provide better defense of personally-identifiable information (PII) they collect and store?

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.


Take advantage of this opportunity to engage the dialogue, and take away practical information to help you and your colleagues ensure the security of your agency information assets.
