About this event
Mark your calendar for this annual event for government IT leaders and practitioners.
Our dynamic agenda will cover the hottest topics in IT, from cybersecurity, mobility, cloud, and application delivery. Come and hear expert keynotes, learn new strategies for application delivery, and cyber security while networking with your peers in the public sector.
Delivering applications securely to anyone, anywhere, at any time is complex, especially while balancing the need to meet Federal mandates. This day is focused on providing valuable insights around Cyber Security stratagems like SSLi (SSL Intercept) and securely delivering applications into a cloud infrastructure - any cloud infrastructure - public, private, or SAAS. Hear from industry experts and Government Agency leaders on how they are working to keep ahead of the ever growing threats from rogue nation states, hacktivists, and bad actors on the internet.

Risk Management and Strategic Planning in Security
Federal agencies depend heavily on information systems andelectronic data to carry out their operations and to process, maintain, andreport essential information. While bringing numerous benefits, these systemscan be vulnerable to cyber threats and incidents, which have continued toincrease in recent years. Consequently, security considerations are essentialas the federal government invests over $80 billion in IT annually. Nick willdiscuss recent GAO reviews related to cybersecurity and IT acquisition anddevelopment, as well as steps agencies can take to bake security into systemdevelopment and risk management.
