An Update on Federal Cybersecurity
Over the past year, a spotlight has been cast on the federal government’s insecure, often outdated, digital infrastructure and activities underway to identify and tackle threats to high-value content. What is the current state of security in federal government and how are agencies across government protecting their most prized data?
At this event, Nextgov sat down with experts to discuss how cybersecurity has changed in the wake of recent breaches of federal IT systems as well as the various policy responses to these breaches and how they are being implemented at an agency level. We took a look at federal cybersecurity spending, the new layers of cyber defense through data protection, and how agencies have used the Cybersecurity Strategy and Implementation Plan to improve their systems against hackers and other cyber threats.
