Cloud Adoption in the U.S. Federal Government

Presented by

Dr. Larry Ponemon- Founder of The Ponemon Institute

About this talk

In 2017, reaffirming the commitment to the cloud, President Trump's Executive Order on “Strengthening the Cybersecurity of Federal Networks and Critical Infrastructure” calls for agency heads to show preference in their procurement for shared IT services, to the extent permitted by law, including email, cloud and cybersecurity services. Under this directive, agencies are continuing to prioritize cloud computing initiatives as part of their IT modernization plans. 2 years later, in partnership with Ponemon, Forcepoint surveyed cloud influencers within federal agencies to find out more about current cloud adoption trends across federal government to find out where agencies are having successes and what problems they are encountering, especially as it relates to securing the cloud. Join this webinar to review and analyze the results of the research survey by Dr. Larry Ponemon. Dr. Ponemon earned his Ph.D. at Union College. He has a Master’s degree from Harvard University and attended the doctoral program in system sciences at Carnegie Mellon University. Dr. Larry Ponemon is the Chairman and Founder of the Ponemon Institute and is considered a pioneer in privacy auditing and the Responsible Information Management or RIM framework. Dr. Ponemon was appointed to the Advisory Committee for Online Access & Security for the United States Federal Trade Commission. He was appointed by the White House to the Data Privacy and Integrity Advisory Committee for the Department of Homeland Security. Dr. Ponemon was also an appointed to two California State task forces on privacy and data security laws. He is a member of Shared Assessments’ Advisory Board.
