Join the SANS Institute as we bring the SANS Federal Government Cyber Security Briefing to the Federal Community in the DC area.
A recent GAO report highlighted the rapid growth of security incidents occurring at Government agencies:
Yet, there are government agencies that are actually reducing the impact of cyber-attacks on their organizations, preventing more attacks, detecting successful intrusions more rapidly and restoring operations with less disruption to the agency mission. These agencies have succeeded in developing processes, deploying security controls technology and applying skill staff to demonstrate real advances in overall cybersecurity levels.
The 1/2day SANS Government Security Vendor Briefing will bring together the government security community and leading security technology and services solution providers to hear case studies of approaches that resulted in measurable increases in the effectiveness and efficiency of government cybersecurity programs.
