Federal agencies, no less than other large organizations, ask a lot of their data nowadays. Generated by applications, network devices and sensors of all types, data is used to develop new digital services, to analyze program, mission and administrative performance; and to improve cybersecurity. Therefore, it’s important for agency IT staffs to make sure they’re using the latest strategies for organizing and protecting this valuable and transformative asset.

In fact, a series of White House executive orders, together with recent legislative approval of IT-directed dollars, have made explicit the mandate for modernization pursuant to improved cybersecurity, better customer experience and a more contemporary infrastructure.

In this exclusive executive briefing, the following executives explore why protecting data requires a comprehensive approach involving every part of the IT chain – people, policy, infrastructure and applications.
