I'm very pleased to announce that registration is now open for the premier federal management event of the year -- Excellence in Government

The training and education event will take place May 13-14 at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington. We've expanded EIG to two days this year, because, well there's a lot to talk about, isn't there?

And the best news in these tight budget times? It's free

Our staff is working diligently on assembling a stellar lineup of speakers for the event. We're off to a pretty good start, I think, with Vice President Al Gore. He'll provide some perspective on the 20th anniversary of the launch of his Reinventing Government campaign. Scheduled breakout sessions include "Driving Efficiency in Operations," "How Mission-Motivated Teams Get Results," and "Building Tomorrow's  Workforce Today."

As always, we're working to provide a top-notch opportunity for federal managers and executives to learn from their peers and outside experts about how to work smarter, save money and deliver results. 

You can find more information about Excellence in Government here. And here's a tentative schedule for the event.

    Database-level encryption had its origins in the 1990s and early 2000s in response to very basic risks which largely revolved around the theft of servers, backup tapes and other physical-layer assets. As noted in Verizon’s 2014, Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR)1, threats today are far more advanced and dangerous.
