The pandemic might have forced a new working arrangement for nearly the entire, the normally office-bound federal workforce. But it will leave behind a new, permanent condition in which a substantial portion of federal employees will continue to telework.
Thanks, in part, to investments in commercial cloud initiatives and other modernizing efforts, agencies were not caught totally unprepared by the switch to mass telework. But now, for the future mode, IT staffs must update workforce cybersecurity. They’ve got to re-architect methods of identification, authentication and access to accommodate what you might call a perimeterless network.
In this exclusive executive briefing, the following experts examine cybersecurity strategies for acclimating to this new perimeterless network:
Taka Ariga, Chief Data Scientist and Director of the Innovation Lab, Government Accountability Office
Bo Berlas, Chief Information Security Officer, General Services Administration
Gerald Caron, Director, Enterprise Network Management, Department of State
Steven Hernandez, Chief Information Security Officer, Department of Education
Chi Kang, Deputy Director, Cybersecurity Operations, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
Micah Maryn, Senior Solutions Engineer, Government Solutions, Akamai
Patrick Sullivan, Chief Technology Officer, Security Strategy, Akamai
