In 2010, President Obama established the National Policy for the Stewardship of the Ocean, Our Coasts, and the Great Lakes. In doing so, he created our first National Ocean Policy which provides a comprehensive and collaborative framework for ensuring the long-term health, resilience, safety, and productivity of our coastal and marine ecosystems and communities, as well as the global mobility of our Armed Forces and the maintenance of informational peace and security.

September 15, 2022 | USA

Cybersecurity and the government have always been intrinsically linked. Cybersecurity threats against local and central government continue to test both resources and stamina. Now, more than ever, there is a need for vendors and government to come together to find the best way to tackle sophisticated and complex cybercrime. Think Cybersecurity for Government conference program is designed to build bridges across this government-vendor ecosystem. Our events are renowned for delivering to the needs of the industry.

FCW Summit: FedRAMP

August 24, 2022 | USA

As the FedRAMP program approaches the end of its first decade, an increased threat landscape has prompted changes throughout government. FedRAMP program executives have been updating its cloud security offerings to provide a system of security controls that offer a threat-based approach to risk management. The new framework was the result of work by the CISA .govCAR team at Department of Homeland Security that developed a scoring system for each of NIST’s 800-53 security controls. The new approach allows agencies to rank threats and respond effectively. DOD also recently updated its Cloud Security Guide to reduce the differences between Defense security guidance and FedRAMP, and offered new opportunities for reciprocity between the systems. And on the legislative front, Congress has been debating and is moving forward with legislation that would codify FedRAMP requirements and establish an advisory board. Executives from government and industry will examine the new policy developments, how the changing threat environment challenges agencies with limited people and budgetary resources and lessons learned from the log4j vulnerability.

FCW Workshop: Health IT Modernization

April 13, 2022 | USA

Information Technologies that support health care missions and capabilities have never been more critical, as local, state and federal health organizations continue to battle a shifting worldwide pandemic. The ability to share health information across platforms and among healthcare providers is a crucial part of health care organizations’ missions. Data has become the lifeblood of health care, from tracking cases, to vaccine and treatment distribution, as well as initiatives to distribute test kits and personal protection gear across the U.S. IT also supports more effective everyday health care applications including user-centered design that allows more efficient interaction with doctors, getting appointments for treatments or vaccines and arranging telehealth appointments for standard healthcare. Even with the advances of health care dashboards, interactivity and data sharing, cybersecurity risks have accelerated, as attack surfaces have expanded endpoints with remote and work-from-home workforces. Hackers, particularly ransomware criminals, have continued to focus their attacks on the health care industry, finding they can reap rewards from healthcare organizations that can’t afford to lose their networks and data. Emerging technology, such as AI and machine learning, are helping cut through the enormous amount of data and provide information needed to improve protection and identify attack sources. Join us for this workshop to explore the ways IT, emerging tech and data analytics are working to improve the government response to COVID-19 and other health challenges.
