Executive Briefing Series: Securing Agency Communications

Not so long ago business communications took place over just a few media – telephone, multiple-copy memos or in-person conversations or meetings.

Today, IT staff in even small organizations must support multiple channels of electronic communications. The pandemic advanced that requirement widely and profoundly.

Given that a high level of employee teleworking will become a permanent part of official life, agency IT people must now begin a process of rationalizing the communication platforms they depend on, and ensuring the resulting ones meet the stringent cybersecurity standards needed in today’s threat environment.

The following experts share how to reconcile communications channels and cybersecurity standards:

  • Scott Bowman, Deputy Chief Information Officer, IT Management, Federal Emergency Management Agency
  • Christopher Cleary, Principal Cyber Adviser, Department of the Navy
  • Blake Moore, Vice President of Strategy and Operations, Wickr Inc.
  • CW5 William L. Robinson II, Chief Technology Officer & Senior Technical Advisor, U.S. Army
  • Gary Stevens, Executive Director for Information Security Policy and Strategy, Department of Veterans Affairs
