May 20, 2015 According to the White House, the majority of government cyber incidents in FY13 could have been prevented by two-factor, or strong authentication. Yet as of this past February, just 41% of civilian agencies had implemented two-factor authentication and, even worse, numerous agencies had made no progress whatsoever. Without a comprehensive authentication system across enterprises, the government will be unable to implement the kind of real-time, technical attribution analysis that is necessary for effective deterrence. With a decade in the books and little to show for it, what does the future hold for the Federal Information Security Management Act, and how will it affect identity and access management across government?

March 26, 2015 These days, federal leadership is faced with significantly more complex problems, managing a few critical resources while trying to conform to policies and regulations and maintain efficiency. In most cases, the final plan is completed through time consuming manual efforts just ahead of a deadline with little opportunity for what-if analysis, validation, and justification. Traditional advanced analytics and decision management have always enjoyed an important synergy in delivering value in tackling these challenges. So what if we could now optimize those recommended and prioritized decisions and processes through advanced analytics? A decision optimization platform offers planners the chance to centralize critical input data, visualize what is happening, consider automated recommendations, and engage in valuable what-if analysis.
