Government Information Security: The State of the Union
**Live Event in private suite at RSA Conference - Conference passes NOT required to gain admission**
The Obama Administration has paid historic attention to cybersecurity and securing the nation's critical information infrastructure. But how has this new focus shaped the way local, state and federal government agencies approach IT security, and where will they invest their time and resources in 2011?
This sneak preview of the RSA Conference session draws results and analysis from Information Security Media Group's new "Government Information Security Today" survey. With insights from this presentation, attendees will be better prepared to:
- Explore how federal, state and local governments have safeguarded their IT systems and networks;
- Review the state of information security within federal, state and local government agencies to understand their strengths and weaknesses and what that means;
- Analyze government leaders' top legislative priorities in regards to cybersecurity, FISMA reform, education and training and cloud computing;
- Identify the emerging technologies and strategies where agencies invest taxpayers' money.
This exclusive sneak preview is a live event for invited guests at RSA Conference 2011.
Government Information Security Today is the study about and for cybersecurity leaders in federal, state and local governments
Administered electronically by Information Security Media Group (ISMG), publisher of GovInfoSecurity.com, this survey is crafted with guidance from government thought-leaders, with a mission to:
- Review the state of information security within federal, state and local government agencies to determine their strengths and weaknesses;
- Showcase government leaders' top legislative priorities in regards to cybersecurity, FISMA reform, education and training and cloud computing;
- Focus on emerging technologies and strategies where agencies invest taxpayers' money.
Among the trends the survey tracks:
- FISMA Compliance/Real-Time Monitoring - Assess the effectiveness of policies and procedures aimed at securing government IT.
- Cloud Computing - Fad or real trend in the way government agencies will access applications and data.
- Career - Evaluate the tenure of information security professionals in government and education/training opportunities.
- Securing Technologies - what are government agencies technology spending priorities for 2011, including authentication, biometrics, encryption and identity management.
Results of the survey will be covered in news stories, blogs, podcasts, webinars and multimedia reports, and will be available for presentation at leading security events, including RSA Conference 2011.
