Telework Changing Cybersecurity across the Federal Government

This event qualifies for 1 CPEs

An information-sharing event that is focused on the impact that teleworkaccelerated by COVID-19, is having on cybersecurity across the Federal Government. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has issued several memorandums such as M-19-17 and M-20-19 to encourage and maximize telework flexibilities for the Federal workforce. Topic Leaders will go in-depth about the cybersecurity authentication changes and innovations that have been incorporated into their agency and how they plan to make it a part of the “New Normal”. What authentication tools helped the Federal Government make the switch to teleworking? Where do these Federal Leaders see the future of teleworking taking the Federal Government?
