Event Details

Overview

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has created a Cybersecurity Steering Committee.  The Cybersecurity group is working closely with the DHS Cloud Steering Committee on a broad-based, component-led, DHS-wide adoption and move to the cloud.  This event is a follow-up panel discussion to the September 17th DHS Cloud Forecast Update program and will focus exclusively on the cybersecurity elements critical for mission success and operational excellence.   This panel will include both a headquarters and a component perspective on cybersecurity in the cloud.

Key learning points from this session include:

  • Zero Trust
  • Explain the current approach for accelerating DHS’s move to the cloud.
  • Define the government’s point of view on cybersecurity in the cloud
  • Share perspectives on cybersecurity from components and headquarters
  • Describe the current vision for cybersecurity as the Department shifts to IT as a service, including the integration of future cloud contracts with DHS Wide Data Network (DWDN) and other IT contracts on the horizon
