Federal information security teams are under unrelenting pressure to secure the national critical infrastructure, networks, and data. With fully-fledged state-based attacks now the norm and cyberspace recognized as an official theater of warfare the tactics and strategies that were once considered robust defenses are no longer considered even merely adequate.
To help federal agencies thrive in this disruptive cyber environment Palo Alto Networks has brought together government and industry cybersecurity leaders for two days of knowledge sharing on the future of security. Federal Ignite 19 offers participants the opportunity to discuss practical security challenges like securing the supply chain, as well as consider how 5G networks will change the security landscape and explore how Zero Trust networking and artificial intelligence will change the defenses available to agencies.
But what really sets Federal Ignite 19 apart from the myriad cybersecurity conferences on offer, especially this month during National Cyber Security Awareness Month, are the hands-on workshops and opportunity to participate in interactive training on a Cyber Range. The Cyber Range sessions provide the latest interactive training with actual threats to ensure that agency cyber teams are able to develop and execute the most comprehensive security strategies to protect critical national assets both today and in the future.
With the opportunities federal agencies will be able to garner from new technologies to drive the mission forward it’s reassuring to know that the security challenges they bring with them aren’t insurmountable. Armed with insight, access to tools, and private sector partners, like Palo Alto Networks, federal agencies can approach this disruptive future with confidence.
Government Technology Insider will be covering Palo Alto Network’s Federal Ignite 19 this week and recapping the event’s highlights with exclusive interviews in the coming weeks. Subscribe here.
