csg innovation classroom: Assuring Critical Services--An Operational cybersecurity approach for state Governments

Presented by HP

Friday, Sept. 20, 3-4 p.m.

Local economies and critical government services have become increasingly dependent on cyberspace. Accordingly, many state government agencies are poised to make significant cybersecurity investments in the near term. An operational cybersecurity approach can help ensure states derive value beyond security from these investments. This session will focus on opportunities for new outcomes for critical services that can be derived from cybersecurity investments such as continuous monitoring, identity management and situational awareness.


Preregister for this session by Sept. 13 to ensure your space for the classroom. Sign-ups after Sept. 13 will be taken on-site at the conference on a first come, first served basis.
