  • FITARA Forward: The Congressional Perspective FITARA Forward: The Congressional Perspective Presented by: Nextgov | Underwritten by Dell Recorded: Sep 28 2016 46 mins
    Nearly two years after passing the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA), Congress remains heavily invested in the implementation and success of this landmark legislation. Through two rounds of scorecards, Congressional leaders have aimed to keep federal agencies, and the Chief Information Officers leading IT, accountable for carrying out FITARA.

    During this digital event, Nextgov will sit down with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to discuss the status of FITARA’s implementation across the government. We’ll look at the hallmarks of successful FITARA adoption as well as the biggest areas of improvement for agencies. In addition, we’ll discuss what’s next on the road to IT modernization, including pending legislation such as the administration’s IT Modernization Fund, and Congress’ MOVE IT bill.
  • Mission Critical: An Update on Federal Cybersecurity Mission Critical: An Update on Federal Cybersecurity Presented by: Nextgov | Underwritten by: Adobe Recorded: Aug 11 2016 113 mins
    Over the past year, a spotlight has been cast on the federal government's insecure,often outdated, digital infrastructure and activities underway to identify and tackle threats to high-value content. What is the current state of security in federal government and how are agencies across government protecting their most prized data?

    At this event, Nextgov will sit down with experts to discuss how cybersecurity has changed the wake of recent breaches of federal IT systems as well as the various policy responses to these breaches and how they are being implemented at an agency level. We'll take a look at federal cybersecurity spending, the new layers of cyber defense through data protection, and how agencies have used the Cybersecurity Strategy and Implementation Plan to improve their systems against hackers and other cyber threats.

  • Data in Action: Improving the Business of Government Data in Action: Improving the Business of Government Presented by: Nextgov | Underwritten by: Dun & Bradstreet Recorded: Jun 23 2016 171 mins
    Data is the cause of - and solution to - many of the challenges agencies face today.There's more of it than ever before, and likewise there is more potential to capitalize on it. Getting a grip on the data you have requires technology, proper policies and the right people, strategically positioned to collect, analyze and act upon data-driven insights. Data, used in conjunction with analytics and other emerging technologies, stands to provide agencies with today's highest-impact opportunity to advance mission-critical objectives. For some, this means reorganizing traditional bureaucracies around the data they collect, making data a strategic pillar to build around. For other agencies, it means bringing in new talent, ideas, and strategies to operationalize data with creative, mission-centric methods.
  • Capitalizing on Government’s Data Capitalizing on Government’s Data Presented by: Nextgov Underwritten by: Hitachi Data Systems Federal Recorded: Jun 1 2016 48 mins
    The Obama administration’s policies on data have allowed federal agencies to collect and share more data than ever before, often with significant benefits to multiple stakeholders and the general public. In this viewcast, we’ll discuss several case studies in which the government is using existing data sets in profound ways. We’ll explore:

    - The Commerce Department’s innovative efforts, including the newly-launched Opportunity Project, which builds on the White House’s pledge to unleash government information, spur innovation and empower better decision-making.

    - Possibilities inherent in health records data of the nearly 20 million beneficiaries within the DOD and Department of Veterans Affairs health records systems. Collectively, the agencies are finally beginning to share health records data back and forth, and they’ve launched a Joint Legacy Viewer application that allows sharing and real-time updates in patient records from either VA or DOD facilities.

    - The Police Data Initiative, the White House’s push to collect and make better sense of law enforcement, presents an interesting use case from the external (public-facing) and internal challenges of a large-scale data project. Externally, the challenge of open data sharing is specifically getting agencies to commit to more transparency; internally, they’ve been working with agencies to be more data-driven and better manage information.
  • Data Governance in the Internet of Everything Data Governance in the Internet of Everything Presented by: Nextgov | Underwritten by: DLT Solutions | Veritas Recorded: Feb 4 2016 50 mins
    All the data in the world is useless if you can’t manage it.

    With as many as 200 billion internet-connected sensors and devices expected by 2020, we’re fast approaching a world of big data – the Internet of Everything – but making the most of it requires advances in data governance.

    For federal agencies, this explosion of data represents both a major challenge and opportunity: How can they ensure the availability, usability, integrity, and security of new data while using it to improve service and mission delivery?
