Event Details


Event Description:

The importance of cybersecurity is at an all-time high, especially for government agencies.  It’s a matter of national security. With the number of federal employees remotely connecting to agency networks, cloud-based remote access environments and collaboration tools via telework, agencies can be exposed to increasing risk.

While guidance has been issued to help agencies better protect their network environments, CenturyLink has years of experience and expertise to help guide agencies through the process. The built-in security tools and technologies we use to protect our network can also help protect our customers.  We see more cyber threats, so we can stop more. By modeling threat behaviors, understanding attacker techniques and implementing widespread cybersecurity protections, we built an exceptional global advanced threat research team known as Black Lotus Labs. 

Join CenturyLink government security professionals for insight into solving agency-specific security challenges while leveraging network visibility.
