As the one-year anniversary of the Biden administration’s cybersecurity executive order (EO) nears, join Federal government and industry experts on May 19 for MeriTalk’s in-person Cyber Central conference to explore how agencies are building a more resilient government cybersecurity posture.

With an increase in cyberattacks on government agencies and critical infrastructure providers, agile cybersecurity models are more crucial than ever. Cyber Central will cover how Federal agencies are evolving their cyber policies, strategies, risk management approaches, and priorities to guard against increasingly sophisticated adversaries and mitigate the impact of attacks.

Hear from Richard Grabowski, acting program manager of the CDM Program at the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), for the latest on the CDM Program. Grabowski will discuss the evolving threat remediation role of the CDM Dashboard, top-of-mind cyber priorities within the Federal government, and CISA’s move to revamp the program to better align with the White House’s zero trust directives.

Then join Dovarius Peoples, chief information officer at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, to examine the increasingly complex threats to cloud environments and what steps agencies are taking to ensure a more secure and resilient cloud environment.

Other key government speakers include Kevin Walsh, director of information technology and cybersecurity at the Government Accountability Office, and Brian Conrad, acting FedRAMP director and program manager for cybersecurity at the General Services Administration.

The event’s industry panel will include Phil Fuster, vice president of Federal at Proofpoint; Brian Hajost, president and CEO at SteelCloud; Wayne Lloyd, Federal CTO and VP of U.S. Sales and Engineering at RedSeal; and Timothy Meyers, VP of Federal cybersecurity at Maximus.

The industry panelists will discuss the increasingly critical role zero trust plays in building cyber resiliency, a breakdown of the Office of Management and Budget’s Federal zero trust security strategy, how agencies are implementing zero trust within their security frameworks, what’s on the horizon, and more.

Other industry speakers at the event include Bruce Brody, CISO advisor at Cisco Systems; Morgan Wright, chief security advisor at SentinelOne; Jim Richberg, field CISO at Fortinet; Wayne LeRiche, solution architect at Palo Alto Networks Federal; Julie Starnes, VP of public sector at Recorded Future; and more.

Cyber Central will also review the cyber EO’s one-year anniversary, how government and industry can unite to strengthen the Federal government’s cyber approaches, what proactive steps IT leaders can take to mitigate threats and tackle cyber incidents before they happen, and more.

Register today to join MeriTalk and cybersecurity experts for an engaging discussion on May 19 at Convene in Washington, D.C., from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. EDT.
