How are hackers breaching our security and how do we stop them?
In 2014, there were 67,000 information security incidents reported for systems supporting the federal government, an increase of 1,121% since 2006, according to US-CERT. The recent breaches exposed millions of personnel records and security-clearance files. APTs have reached an unprecedented level of savvy and persistence. Are we in the penultimate stages of global cyber warfare?
GAO has acknowledged the government is often ill-equipped to prevent and defend against threats. Challenges to an effective defense are poor oversight of contractors, ineffective response to incidents, absence of comprehensive cyber policies, and a general lack of consistency throughout the government in implementing protocols and combating threats.
Join us on November 5th at 2:00 PM to learn about new tools and policies, such as persistent encryption, kill chain, and zero-trust, that will:
· Guard against external & internal threats
· Combat, mitigate, and prevent e-terrorism
· Challenge the resistance to sharing information
· Aid in interoperability & network integration
