A comprehensive security strategy for Federal and other government agencies requires in-depth analysis of encrypted traffic to detect and prevent hidden attacks and data leakage. SSL has become a favorite tool that attackers use to distribute malware to evade detection by security devices, such as a firewall, IPS or web gateway. Increasing numbers of attackers, including state-sponsored actors, are using this technology to hide malware and escalate the likelihood of successful attacks.
Join this informative webcast to review your options to ensure a more comprehensive view of this potentially malicious traffic.

FireEye recently released a new report that documents how and why governments around the world are turning to the cyber domain as a cost-effective way to spy on other countries, steal technology, and even wage war.
Whether it’s sensitive military, diplomatic, or economic information, governments depend on the integrity of their data. If that data falls into the wrong hands, the consequences could be severe.
In the wake of two apparent state- and government-sponsored attacks, APT1 and APT28, government agencies must understand why they are in attackers’ crosshairs, what attackers might be seeking, and how they can protect themselves.
Join us for a dynamic discussion with subject matter experts where you will learn:
•What makes your government-related organization an appealing target – whether you’re a political opponent, business, agency or vendor
•Why it’s important to determine who could be planning an attack, their motives, and how they might carry out their goals
•How to assess your level of preparedness and how to protect yourself if you are not ready for this new era of cyber warfare
Improving customer experience across the federal government continues to be a priority for the Obama administration. While the road to success is full of challenges, agencies are starting to plan and deliver mission services by putting customers and citizens at the forefront of their decision-making.
Customer service champions are helping to deliver better services through the intelligent use of technology and improved management and governance, and agencies are beginning to map their many interactions with citizens to provide an improved customer service for the American public.
This continued emphasis on customer experience has the potential to transform the way people interact with government in myriad ways, from paying taxes and receiving benefits to simply navigating its many services. But developing customer-focused strategies is still a major challenge for most agencies accustomed to the bureaucracy of government, and it needs to remain an emphasis for progress to continue through to the next presidential administration.
Hiring and employee engagement strategies today will shape the federal workforce of tomorrow, and those policies are beginning to modernize.
The government’s newly-announced “REDI” (recruitment, engagement, diversity and inclusion) roadmap aims to reshape agency hiring and engagement efforts, and the administration’s top-down push includes an emphasis on agencies using digital tools to refine recruiting efforts and targeting next-generation talent to fill gaps amid significant turnover.
Management, engagement and retention strategies must change for agencies to capitalize on both the skill-set and experience of existing federal employees and an influx of new talent from the millennial ranks.
Join Government Executive for this viewcast as our panelists will discuss:
How the government is planning to reshape hiring and employee engagement efforts through the “REDI” (recruitment, engagement, diversity and inclusion) roadmap
How digital tools are refining recruiting efforts across government
In this session we will discuss how state and local government organizations can create modern cloud applications in Microsoft Azure. Learn how you can help modernize your agency and the services you deliver to citizens using:
•Devices that are sensors, sensor gateways or IoT devices that are publishing events to Event Hub either directly or using Microsoft IoT Hub SDK
•Gateways - a logical component that groups processing, management of event processors
•Event processor routes and device actors - Device Actors are chained with various other actor types that are responsible for aggregating, storing, analysis and reporting on device events
•Initiate a project using Visual Studio Online
•How an IoT pattern can be used in Azure IoT Hub using a presentation and references to real tenants.
It is no surprise that government agencies face unique challenges as they try to improve efficiency and productivity by providing employees access to data anytime, anywhere on any device.
Watch this webcast, where Kris Ostergard, Chief Architect at Cyber Solutions Group and Douglas Bourgeois, VP End User Computing - Public Sector at VMware, will review the VMware Secure Mobile Workplace (the modernization of the desktop and app infrastructure) and answer the following questions:
•Can you provide all end users with services that deliver agile mission value?
•Will you be able to leverage existing infrastructure investments?
•What are realistic ROI expectations?
•How do you establish a clear path to the future?
In this 30-minute webcast, you will learn how federal, state and local government organizations are using modern productivity applications to helps drive efficiency by enabling seamless experiences for government employees and citizens – across a number of areas including procurement, human resources, and permitting and licensing.
In this webcast, you will learn how Office 365 and DocuSign for Microsoft allows government organizations to:

These days, it's not uncommon for a state, city, or county government to make their datasets available to the public. But there are limitations in the usefulness of data if that data isn't being used in strategic ways, especially by the government making the data available.
Editors from Route Fifty and data and performance leaders from state & local jurisdictions will discuss the questions below along with good ideas, best practices and approaches to turn public data into the energy that powers government services.
What are some of the most innovative ways local jurisdictions are currently using their data to improve the services they provide?
How can governments not only measure their performance but transform it?
What are some of the best ways jurisdictions can save their taxpayers money and make informed budgeting decisions?
What are some of the legal and privacy concerns involving the use of public data?
