Keep it Safe

Cybersecurity Solutions Lead – US Public Sector CTO Office, Herndon

You may have heard all of these as buzz words, you may have been asked about them, or you may be digging into some or all of these topics in more depth. But why are they important and how can you address them with your limited time and resources?

This engaging session provides an overview of all of these topics and more. It shows how they all are efforts to guide organizations as they protect against modern cybersecurity threats. It shows how a modern information platform can enable Cybersecurity Excellence without busting the budget or throwing out your current investment. “Cybersecurity Excellence” means finding a way to both efficiently and effectively manage cyber risks. It means asking the right questions and focusing investments in the security controls that matter most. It means successfully defending critical systems and sensitive information despite persistent threats, ongoing talent shortages, and ever-present budget constraints.

Don’t run away from these topics, come learn how to use them to your advantage to make sure your organization is secure and relieve some of the drudgery of keeping it that way.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Stop being afraid of Zero Trust, CARTA, CSF, RMF, CIS, CJIS, and other best practices.
  2. See how using one or some of these can help achieve your Cybersecurity goals.
  3. Learn how a methodical, architectural security approach can make protecting your organization easier.
