SANS Government Cybersecurity Solutions Focus Report

  • Wednesday, 16 Nov 2022 3:30PM EST (16 Nov 2022 20:30 UTC)
  • Speaker: John Pescatore

Threat actors continue to make government agencies – at the federal, state and local levels – one of their most important targets. A series of Presidential Executive Orders and DHS CISA Binding Operational Directives have been issued in response, often with specific cybersecurity control and technology requirements. Government agencies need to address both these pressures, and do it with limited resources, prioritizing their actions based on identified risks and available resources

John will evaluate topics and insights discussed at the SANS Government Security Solutions Forum, where top SANS instructors & US Government affairs and industry experts presented guidance on several key security control areas:

• Realistic Approaches to Implementing Zero Trust

• Achieving Productivity Gains from Automation and Orchestration Tools

• Closing Gaps in Vulnerability, Patch and Configuration Management

• Providing Secure and Safe Access to a Hybrid Office/Remote

John will take a deep dive into the pivotal challenges government agencies face going into FY23, provide his perspective on key security control areas, and provide recommendations for government agencies that need to close security gaps effectively and efficiently.
