Federal CIO Suzette Kent said OMB will release an updated Trusted Internet Connections (TIC) policy in the coming weeks to help agencies more easily move to secure cloud services.
DoD’s next moves toward cloud computing are also likely to demand a broader rethinking of its approach to network security and identity management.
Cloud computing, mobile devices, the Internet of Things, and the increasing digitization of information and processes are pushing agencies toward a hybrid computing environment. This is when agencies have a mix of on premise and commercial cloud infrastructures.
The Trusted Internet Connection (TIC) policy is making the move to the cloud more complex than some say it needs to be. It was one of three hot topics at the ACT-IAC Management of Change conference last week.
New cybersecurity standards for cloud systems are on the way. The FedRAMP office at the General Services Administration is drafting a new set of rules this month to qualify cloud systems for use with FISMA high specifications. Susie Adams is chief technology officer for federal business practice at Microsoft. On In Depth with Francis Rose, she described the evolution of cloud in the government.

November 16th, 2010 at 12:00PM Work is something you do, not someplace you go. Federal Agencies are looking at Telework as a way to lower the cost of government, attract and retain top talent, enable emergency readiness plans, lower their carbon footprint, and take advantage of technology improvements to work more efficiently.
The current administration recognizes the opportunity to leverage telework to solve some of the government’s greatest challenges, and has long championed the economic and social benefits of telework expansion.
FedsTelework, a FedScoop production, is pleased to bring you a panel discussion with Government IT leaders including Bill Piatt from GSA and Pamela Budda from DOD to discuss telework solutions in the federal government.
June 16th According to Forester, desktop virtualization is no longer a trend; it’s the future of the PC. The question now facing federal IT managers is no longer whether or not to virtualization, but which approach best accommodates both end-users’ demands and IT’s need for greater manageability and security. Federal agencies are already reaping the benefits of desktop virtualization, effectively delivering anytime, anywhere computing to an increasingly mobile and distant workforce. They’re significantly reducing TCO, lowering energy consumption to sustain Green IT initiatives, creating a more agile infrastructure and opening the way for cloud computing. But for many the explosion of new virtualization technologies seems overwhelming. How do you make sense of the changing desktop landscape, and arrive at a solution that boosts workforce productivity while improving management efficiencies? Where do you get started?
We’ve been talking about the importance of cloud computing to many agencies. Today’s Microsoft ” FutureFed” blog talks about the essential role that cloud computing can play in creating a more agile, efficient, and cost-effective…
