            No separate registration necessary. All TechNet Cyber registrants are welcome to attend. The training will focus on helping contractors understand personnel and facility clearance processes.  Large businesses play a key role in sponsoring and assisting small businesses with getting personnel and facility clearances as subcontractors.  This training will give large businesses a better understanding of DoD’s and DISA’s processes.  The goal is to help streamline or shorten the time it takes a small business to get an interim clearance and facility entrance.  Interim clearances afford small business owners and their employees the ability to begin work on large contracts as the clearance process... ...read more...

                          Cyber offensive techniques are often asymmetric in nature, generating large amounts of noise in enterprise networks and requiring far more time to investigate than to launch. Traditional analyst tools employed by enterprise SOC teams generate thousands of alerts daily, draining analyst resources, and eroding time dedicated to digging deeper. With recent advancements in machine learning there is increased interest within the DoD to find new applications of machine learning for network defense to help level the playing field in cyberwarfare by providing direct access to ML enabled cyber tools directly to helpdesk operators for instantly identifying and remediating threats all... ...read more...

In 2019 and beyond, this will also become a requirement for doing business with all Federal agencies and will be a significant competitive advantage for contractors who demonstrate their ability to protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).

                                            Security integration in the DevOps process has been a primary contributor to increasing security quality and reducing compliance costs. Traditionally, setting up and maintaining a STIG-compliant development test environment is burdensome and expensive. Development tools often will not run in hardened environments so implementing security testing in development requires mirroring of the development test environment. To further complicate DevSecOps matters, government programs inevitably involve multiple mission partners, several infrastructures and security domains. All of these factors limit DevSecOps implementation success, at scale, government wide. Other governmental DevSecOps impacts include:   The increased focus on cyber security has made developing and deploying applications... ...read more...
