Every government agency has terabytes of data, everything from social security numbers, to environmental data, to business records. And it’s imperative for agencies to make sure that information is secured properly. The key is to make sure the right people have access to the right data sets at the right time – which is known as privileged access.

However, agencies don’t want to just create their own security and privacy standards for data managements. In order to secure the data uniformly across the government, agencies follow the National Institutes for Standards and Technology’s Security and Privacy Controls for Federal Information Systems and Organizations – more commonly knowns as SP800–53. However, in the coming months agencies will need to brush up on their compliance reading, because NIST is rolling out an update to those standards.

Join us on Thursday, May 18 at 2pm ET to learn best practices on how privileged access and vulnerability patching can help gov secure its environments while working towards compliance. In addition, since technology and threats are constantly evolving, we’ll look at the future of government security practices.

Specifically, you will learn:

  • The top 5 anticipated updates to the NIST guidance to help organizations better mitigate risk.
  • How privileged access allows agencies to better regulate their data and stay compliant.
  • Why implementing NIST vulnerability management related controls are necessary to thwart attacks.
