Ramping Up for the Future of Gov – Why Cyber Needs to Change

The way government works was radically shifted in 2020, and following the shift to remote work, agencies are more likely to be open to a hybrid work environment, in which more employees are working outside the perimeter.

That shift means governments have to rethink how they handle security too. But as of today, many organizations continue to rely on traditional perimeter-based security measures, even though they know that cloud, mobility and related technologies have rendered the perimeter far more porous than they would like – and their network assets far more vulnerable.

Join us online Wednesday, March 10 from 12-1:30 p.m. ET/9-10:30 a.m. PT to learn:

  • About the cybersecurity paradigm shift going on in government from wall security to zero trust architectures.
  • How the move to remote work has and will continue to transform the culture around security.
  • The biggest barriers facing agencies looking to invest and implement in the latest cybersecurity best practices.
