The End of the Digital Fortress: Security Innovation as an Enabler for Transformation
To respond to the evolving landscape of cyber risk, we need to modernize the antiquated, perimeter-based security models and obsolete compliance regimes that prevent meaningful transformation in how defense and other government organizations achieve their mission objectives. The "digital fortress" mentality that aims to keep out intruders can also hamper the innovations offered by commercial clouds, such as data analytics, artificial intelligence, and edge computing. Join a thought-provoking conversation led by Jeanette Manfra, Director, Government Security & Compliance, Google Cloud (former Assistant Director for Cybersecurity at the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA)), Dan Prieto, Strategic Executive - Federal Government, Google Cloud (former Chief Technology Officer in the office of the Department of Defense CIO and Director for Cybersecurity Policy on the National Security Council Staff in the White House) and featuring Peter T. Ranks, Deputy Chief Information Officer for Information Enterprise (DCIO(IE)). This panel will reexamine the security of Government Clouds versus Commercial Clouds, zero trust security models, and share recent learnings from COVID-19 pandemic response and recovery efforts that can be applied throughout defense agencies.
