The Internet of Things is changing the computing landscape across the government. From mobile and wearable devices to smart sensors in buildings to drones sending back a volume and veracity of data like never before.
This program will provide a progress report on secure mobility solutions in government.
Getting cloud to some of the most dangerous and remote areas is no easy task.
Frank Konieczny, the Air Force CIO, said the service is figuring out how to authenticate connected devices.
What is the U.S. Air Force doing to identify new technologies and promote innovation? How do advances in technology ease the path toward IT modernization? Join host Michael Keegan as he explores these questions with Frank Konieczny, Chief Technology Officer, U.S. Department of the Air Force.
This program will provide a progress report on data center optimization in government.
It’s been almost eight years since the Office of Management and Budget kicked off its latest data center consolidation and optimization initiative.
For success in the cloud, manage your data
The Defense Department is taking growing pains in stride as it continues to work on its multi-year implementation plan of the cybersecurity system, the Joint Regional Security Stacks (JRSS).
“We encrypt almost everything,” Frank Konieczny, chief technology officer of the U.S. Air Force, said on Federal News Radio’s In Focus. “Probably close to 100 percent, if not 100 percent, within the Air Force domain right now, because you have to. Now the question becomes, when do you decrypt to look at everything else? And we do it at the application level or at the endpoint level, user endpoint level, so we don’t like decrypting in the middle because that just adds another factor or problem area for incident reporting.”
Protecting data on government networks is a critical component of our national cyber security strategy. Indeed, the Administration’s drive to strengthen federal cybersecurity calls for a re-examination of government’s legacy approach that requires every agency to build and defend its own networks. Agencies' concerns range from the use of encryption to the data explosion from the internet of things.
Federal News Radio hosted RSA Chief Technology Officer Zulfikar Ramzan and three federal executives to take a look at several aspects of network visibility and analytics.
The Air Force needs to cut the number of applications it has on its network.
As service transitions to Air Force and DoD enterprise IT models, defining what technology services should be shared is still on the to-do list. The service's AFNet program is the umbrella effort to centrally-manage many commodity IT functions.
