A Federal Forum Presented by Axonius Federal Systems
IT, operations, and cybersecurity professionals at U.S. Federal agencies must continually adapt to complex challenges and ongoing changes. They must pivot when adversaries evolve their attack methods and when new vulnerabilities threaten U.S. infrastructure. They reprioritize when faced with Executive Orders and regulatory mandates. All of these adaptations must be done at a massive scale with an ever-changing workforce of highly skilled and trained professionals in a competitive labor market.
Join your Federal IT and security colleagues to learn:
- Current IT and security challenges and solutions to overcome them, including Binding Operational Directive 23-01, M22-09, M21-31, SaaS management, and more
- Strategies to anticipate and address binding directives and executive orders
- How leaders are incorporating a cyber asset management foundation into their zero trust strategies
Contextualizing Modern Cyber Risks (and how to mitigate them)
You’ve likely heard of Federal SaaS regulations like the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP), as well as laws such as the Federal Information Security Modernization Act (FISMA) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
Hear from Federal leaders; SaaS and compliance organization, Aquia; and cyber asset management leader, Axonius, to learn how to ensure that all SaaS applications meet these regulations and compliance requirements, as well as monitor usage and costs to optimize performance and efficiency.
M-21-31 is a clear directive for Federal agencies to advance logging capabilities, including log retention and management, “with a focus on ensuring centralized access and visibility for the highest-level enterprise security operations center (SOC) of each agency.”
Managing logs well requires great observability and to achieve that, an agency first needs visibility. That’s an issue when security information and event management systems can’t track unknown data on the network.
Listen into this chat with government leaders from the Department of Homeland Security, the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation program, as well as from Defend Integrators, on how they approach this challenge and what they’ve learned along the way.
The CISA Strategy – What It Means in 2023
