Just as criminals frequently wait for dark to commit a crime; our cyber adversaries thrive when they can hide in the shadows. But key Federal programs are moving ahead aimed at reducing the blind spots. The central key to these programs is ‘Visibility.’

Across civilian government with the CDM program and with initiatives in DOD and the intelligence community – managing network access and preventing unauthorized network connections are paramount considerations. Joined to these functional and risk management goals is renewed urgency in addressing the threat that insiders – or authorized users – pose to the government’s networks.

Join us for an in-depth look at how agencies are responding to the risk of emerging cyber threats.
