Tackling the federal security balancing act
of today (and tomorrow)
Year two into the Biden administration, and federal security leaders find themselves balancing varied, yet equally critical demands. The secure delivery of citizen services remains crucial as we approach a post-pandemic world, and calls for more rapid adoption of emerging technology drive a growing need for secure, agile development across all agencies. Heightened geopolitical tensions make federal systems and networks all the more vulnerable to attack, while pressure looms to meet pending deadlines tied to sweeping cybersecurity regulations. This while struggles to draw and maintain necessarily cyber talent exceed even those experienced across the private sector.
On September 20-21, SC Media will host a free two-day event that examines the balancing act currently facing federal security leaders, bringing together decision makers from civilian and defense agencies, and thought leaders from both think tanks and industry to examine priorities and tactics to protect government systems and networks amid challenging times.
