Program Overview:

As a nation, we face a host of emerging threats in cyberspace that jeopardize the integrity of democracy, the privacy of citizens, as well as the infrastructure, economic stability and national security of our country.

Cybersecurity has never been more important to the government, and the threat continues to rise. According to a recent U.S. Government Accountability Office report, increasingly sophisticated threats to information technology systems underscore the importance of preventing a major breach where the loss of confidentiality, integrity, or availability can have a severe or catastrophic adverse effect on government operations, assets, or individuals.

Join us and learn best practices for how agencies are protecting our Nation’s critical infrastructure in the face of emerging and persistent cyber threats.
