With an entire government’s worth of networks to protect, Federal cybersecurity leadership has been banging the drum for the last several years for agencies to prioritize efforts to protect their most vital networks – those deemed as “high value” assets.

Join MeriTalk and Cohesity on May 3 from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Eastern time for a fresh assessment of high value asset protection at Achieving Cyber Resiliency: A Roadmap to Protect Agency High Value Assets webinar.

The guidance to agencies has ramped up in recent months as the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) refreshed its Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) guidance for agencies regarding high-value asset protection, based on goals laid out in the Biden administration’s cybersecurity executive order issued one year ago.

At the same time, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) has recommended that agencies build more structured organizations to ensure protection of those assets, and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program continues to prioritize protection of high value assets as one of the high-level payoffs of the security program.

The May 3 webinar features two experts in the field – GAO’s Director of Information Technology and Security Marisol Cruz Cain, and Cohesity’s Strategic Federal Advisor Steve Grewal – who will map out the top considerations for protecting high value assets, improving agency incident responses, restoring data, and strengthening cyber resiliency.

Just a few of the key points on tap discussion:

  • Shrinking network attack surfaces by reining in data sprawl and fragmentation;
  • The crucial role of zero trust security architectures and how to implement strong authentication and role-based data controls; and
  • The best ways to quickly recover and restore data after a cyber attack.

With ransomware attack, phishing exploits, and data breaches growing at an alarming rate, there’s no better time to get the latest take form the experts on high value asset protection.

We invite you to register for the complimentary webinar and join us on May 3.
