Rebooting Identity and Access Management: Why Government Needs More Strong Authentication

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?

April 13, 2015 With posting, tweeting, and streaming, the average American knowledge worker creates 1.8 million megabytes of data a year, enough to fill 9 CD-ROMS a day.

The national security community is a pioneer in the use of big data to achieve mission objectives but the analytics space is growing as quickly as the volume of digital data, itself. This session will focus on using big data analytics to maintain the U.S. technological edge and gaining advantage over adversaries.

Decision Optimization for Advanced Planning and Scheduling

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.

Building Meaningful Dialogue, Engagement and Self-Service with Citizens

March 25, 2015 As information drives consumers, their expectations grow. It’s not enough for consumers to access information, they want their experience with government to be both online and interactive. Consumers are rapidly beginning to demand that government offer the same capabilities of leading banks and commercial service companies with high competency and efficiency. Consumers want to, not only, transact and receive services from government online, they want to be included in the wider dialogue. However, traditional means of communication (e.g., printed brochures, rallies, in-person meetings) no longer satisfy or appeal to these technology-savvy consumers. So there’s an urgent need for emerging digital solutions that can provide establishments with effective tools to integrate traditional information vehicles with cohesive, multichannel public engagement strategies. These proven digital solutions will successfully help government entities to build awareness, increase and streamline services participation, and establish meaningful dialogue with their consumers.
