I am looking forward to attending the FOSE Conference April 3-5 in Washington DC. This post kicks off a blog series highlighting the conference tracks. The five tracks for the event are Cybsecurity, Cloud and Virtualization, Mobile, Defense Innovations and Records and Information Management. Over the next week, I’ll highlight one of the tracks and provide some insights to what you can expect to see at FOSE 2012. The first track to be highlighted is Cybersecurity.
The need for cyber security has never been more important for government. In many settings, government employees are accessing data across multiple platforms, using multiple devices and accessing a variety of networks. In order to keep data and our information systems secure, government must continue to stay one step ahead in the cybersecurity arena.
FOSE describes the Cybersecurity as follows:
This year’s Cybersecurity Conference focuses on the essential defensive security solutions from both the executive program view as well as the technical execution perspective. FOSE will deliver two tracks – executive and technical – that delve into Federal CIO and CISO initiatives driven by recent changes in the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA). Learn about continuous monitoring programmatics and technologies, threat intelligence sources and strategies, and insider threats and other cyber attack trends.
I am looking forward to attending, and it will be interesting to hear the latest on cybersecurity in government. Please follow this link to register and use GovLoop as a discount code.
