Cybersecurity was already an acute challenge for government leaders, with high profile data breaches and ransomware attacks costing organizations millions of dollars and eroding trust with the public they serve. Since the beginning of the pandemic, as the workforce became more distributed and internet-facing technologies became core to continuity of operations, cybersecurity is key to meeting government’s essential mission. In a world where cyber threats are here to stay, and will continue to evolve with the larger tech ecosystem, what is the role of government technology leaders?
During this event, Thales and GovExec are convening technology and executive leaders from across the public sector to discuss how to leverage various tools, strategies, and policy frameworks such as the Cyber Executive Order to decrease cyber risks and prevent data breaches. We’ll explore the c-suite collaboration, tech infrastructure, and workforce required for a strong data security posture.
