                            Agency modernization, expanding cloud deployments, and distributed workforces create new planes of privilege for adversaries to exploit. When designing the future state of The Defense Department’s complex enterprise network, a least-privilege approach is critical to keep pace with adversaries and to lower your attack surface. With users and devices now accessing critical information, systems, and applications from anywhere, the mindset must be to never trust, always verify, and only allow privileged access when needed or contextual parameters are met. Join BeyondTrust to understand why Privileged Access Management (PAM) is integral to secure the adoption of emerging initiatives across the government. Our cybersecurity... ...read more...

                                  While the current defense-in-depth architecture has protected DoD data from adversaries in the past by placing various security products at multiple tiered locations, it has created silo’ed security architectures across NIPR and SIPR. The purpose of Thunderdome is to create a new zero trust security and network architecture that is dynamic, adaptable and can be extended from the user to the data edge. ​There are a lot of ways to describe zero trust, but there are three big, basic tenets of modern zero trust implementations: verify the user AND the device, make access and privileges conditional, and lastly, verify the data and applications explicitly.

We'll share the myths and the truths of what RPA can do and we'll look at real examples of RPA solving practical problems. Together, we'll explore how the art of the possible is here today with Document Understanding, AI/ML Processes, Object Detection, Data Collection & Dissemination, Cybersecurity, Testing and other automations.

                                              In the contested peer environment, speed, mobility, and cyber assurance are more critical than ever. This is particularly true in the joint coalition environment. To ensure future success, joint coalition interoperability needs data-management-as-a-service to leverage a substantial data plane for rapid access to assets in information warfare. When enabled for this capability, identity-focused cyber assurances across the security domains enable all joint coalition partners to operate at full speed to access data for the mission while minimizing risks by using least privilege and secure identity controls to attribute data. A cloud-enabled data-management-as-a-service solution addresses unique sets of challenges to support the... ...read more...

Being completely cut off is the only way to achieve 100% trust, but such a "Cone of Silence" approach didn't work for Agent Smart and it won't work for your federal agency if you need to collaborate with others. In reality, every action does not require the same level of scrutiny or protection. Browsing LinkedIn, for example, should not carry the same level of protection as uploading a file.

Quantum computers can launch attacks that break asymmetric cryptography, rendering the entire PKI-based encryption method obsolete. In fact, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is researching way to deal with the effects of quantum power. As quantum technology advances, agencies will be forced to protect their information and communications against cryptographic attacks through quantum resistant technology.

Users needing access to classified networks needed a rapidly deployable, scalable solution. Traditional solutions consisting of Type 1 encryption are expensive, difficult to manage, and require costly certifications to manage, maintain, and upgrade. As an alternative, PacStar Enterprise CSfC Solutions (ECS) provide gateway services for classified networks using COTS products to meet the security and configuration requirements of the National Security Agency (NSA) Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) program. It enables DoD and Federal organizations to transmit classified information using commercial encryption... ...read more...
