Data breaches have far-reaching consequences and cyber defense is much more costly than cyber-attacks. For agencies with legacy systems and business critical operational technology and industrial control systems, traditional security models that rely on user compliance and hardware defined boundaries are outdated and ineffective against advanced cyber criminals. To take charge of threat management operations, Federal IT leaders are forming innovative, smart, and adaptive security models. Join this session to hear from both industry and Federal IT executives as they discuss:

  • Building trust, visibility, and resiliency
  • Managing rapid threat detection and response with automated cyber defense
  • Leveraging cloud to deliver resilient capabilities
