About this talk

Federal agencies are moving rapidly to plan and implement programs to meet the aggressive schedule required by the Executive Order on Improving the Nation's Cybersecurity. Recent software supply chain attacks and multiple, large entity ransomware attacks show that Federal agencies are as exposed as commercial organizations—although Federal agencies’ technology complexities are unique and very challenging to rapidly evolve. Join us to hear from experts who have helped Civilian and Defense agencies work through complex cybersecurity implementations. We’ll discuss how agencies can effectively implement near-term and longer-term answers to the new requirements on: • Real-time Adaptive Access Management • Critical Data Pseudonymization • AI-driven Detect, Respond, Recover, and Protect • User and Entity Risk Based Incident Detection • Threat Information Sharing • Software Supply Chain Security About the speakers: Mike Echols is a senior cybersecurity executive and critical infrastructure protection strategist working with corporations and the government to make the nation more resilient.
