Unlock the Power of Data — Securely

With Federal agencies focused on implementing the National Cybersecurity Strategy, much of their attention is turning to data – how to use, manage, and secure it. With a cloud-centric approach, government leaders are unlocking the full potential of data, even as they heighten cybersecurity to protect against a growing array of threats.

Join MeriTalk, Databricks, and Amazon Web Services on Wednesday, September 6, from 12:15 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., at the Waldorf Astoria in Washington, D.C., for “Unlock the Power of Data — Securely.”


  • Gerald J. Caron III, chief information officer for the International Trade Administration at the U.S. Department of Commerce
  • Saeed Akhter, executive security advisor for the Public Sector organization at AWS
  • Omar Khawaja, vice president and field chief information security officer at Databricks

This intimate executive roundtable will foster an interagency discussion about the relationship between cybersecurity and data, exploring how agencies can better protect both data and the public.
