Enabling a federal cybersecurity reset

A year and a half into a pandemic, months into a new administration, and still reeling from cyberattacks that hit government agencies, contractors, and critical infrastructure partners, federal security professionals face unprecedented challenges. Tackling those challenges will require a strategic blend of technology, policy, and partnership.  

On November 16-17, SC Media hosted a free two-day event that dissected the challenges and opportunities facing the federal market, bringing together decision makers from civilian and defense agencies, and thought leaders from both think tanks and industry to ultimately assess tactics for staying ahead of evolving threat.
