Event Details

Overview

As public sector agencies develop plans for delivering on the objectives of the presidential Executive Order on Cybersecurity, we at Lumen know that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.  While agencies expand their cyber protections to combat cyber threats and protect against attacks, their  focus should be on taking a holistic approach and not looking at this new directive as simply a set of compliance mandates. 

The attack surface will continue to grow as government strives to improve and make  digital experiences more secure for citizens and government employees alike.  The cybersecurity Executive Order is an opportunity to accelerate progress in an organization’s cybersecurity architecture by setting a solid foundation and by taking a comprehensive approach.   Join the discussion to learn how agencies can leverage industry best practices, re-shape their strategy and proactively mitigate against ransomware, malware and other advanced persistent cyberthreats that endanger endpoints.  Learn ways to meet the cyber challenges of today, while preparing for the uncertainty of tomorrow with a secure network foundation and an in-depth cyber strategy.

Discussion will include:

  • Precautions and lessons learned to help sharpen your agency’s response
  • Applying zero trust principles and meeting TIC 3.0 requirements
  • How to engage new technologies and strategies to protect your agency’s data now and beyond
