AFCEA Bethesda January Breakfast Webinar

AFCEA Bethesda's January Breakfast Webinar: Speed and Security at Scale


Adversaries are getting faster and smarter as they target the nation’s critical infrastructure, attempt to steal critical data from federal agencies, and launch malware and crippling denial of services attacks against government entities and municipalities. Meanwhile, the growth in the number of devices connecting to government networks and increase in a distributed, remote workforce opens more attack surfaces for cybercriminals and nation states to target. It will take speed and innovation to thwart increasingly frequent and sophisticated cyberattacks -- speed to detect, investigate, and mitigate. Agency cyber defenders must be more agile than their adversaries who have swiftly exploited global events, vulnerabilities, and the expanding digital attack surface to boost their cyber-attack operations.


This webinar will explore how agencies can apply rapid innovation to cybersecurity while maintaining high degrees of security and compliance. How can automated systems and emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, quantum computing, and 5G be effectively applied to detect wrongdoing and safeguard government data assets and critical infrastructure? Speakers will discuss how agencies can deploy technologies, processes, and policies to fortify their security posture amidst today's most pressing cybersecurity challenges while remaining adaptable enough to adjust for what is just over the horizon.


Please join AFCEA Bethesda on January 26, 2021 as federal IT security leaders and decision-makers discuss how agencies can move at speed and scale to detect and thwart threats before they escalate.
