FCW Workshop: Cloud Security

This event qualifies for 3 CPEs

As agencies follow the administration's IT Modernization guidance and move more of their systems to the cloud, it's essential to protect the data from a host of evolving threats. There are a number of programs to help with the journey, however. The FedRAMP program is an important part of any agency’s cloud strategy, and it is providing a path and structure to the move by certifying cloud services providers so agencies have a trusted list to select from. The updated Trusted Internet Connection 3.0 policy modernizes secure options for connecting to networks, and the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation program is rapidly adapting to agencies' hybrid cloud architectures.


But there are still many questions to answer and choices to be made. This workshop will bring together agency executives to discuss how they solved the same types of problems your agency is currently facing. What type of cloud works for your data? What is the role of Zero Trust and how does it help manage identity and access to the networks?


Hear from those who have been in the trenches and learn more about:

  • Cloud application security
  • Automated security testing and remediation
  • Managing on-premises data and apps
  • The latest threats to cloud security and how to remediate them
  • Balancing the costs of various security options with the risks
