Government mission partners are investing billions of dollars in research and development on artificial intelligence (AI), and those investments will dramatically improve their ability – and their agency customers’ ability – to make informed decisions, conserve budget dollars, and deploy workers more efficiently, government technology solution providers noted at NVIDIA’s recent Developer Conference.
On the website of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), a robot-like hand reaches out to touch a human hand through a pane of glass as a bright light illuminates the importance of re-tooling the workforce for the arrival of artificial intelligence (AI).
Because communications is often siloed from the rest of IT, many government agencies and Federal system integrators (FSIs) haven’t yet taken advantage of the range of services available from unified communications (UC) platforms beyond video conferencing. MeriTalk sat down with Meredith Krar, director of Federal systems integrators for Zoom, to discuss how UC capabilities can benefit agencies and FSIs and explore how FSIs can meet the requirements of the Department of Defense (DoD) Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) 2.0.
With a mission of separating zero trust security fact from fiction, Zscaler’s Public Sector Summit on March 8 in Washington, D.C. is gearing up to showcase the latest intelligence from top-level government and industry cybersecurity leaders. The event will provide a unique opportunity for the public sector IT community to come together and share, learn, and collectively strengthen how the U.S. defends the mission of government against sophisticated and unrelenting threats.
What’s the Federal government really doing to improve operations and citizen services through digital transformation?
Every technological advance starts with an original idea, and in 2017 the co-founder of Axonius realized he had one. Dean Sysman, now the CEO at Axonius, knew that most of his fellow cybersecurity experts were focusing primarily on stopping cyber threats and finding the culprits. But what was even harder than pinpointing threats was getting a count of the assets that could be compromised.
Experts say the cybersecurity problem is too vast and complex to be solved by traditional approaches alone. Artificial intelligence (AI) can offer a lifeline to organizations overwhelmed by massive volumes of information technology (IT) and OT data as they try to stay ahead of the next big threat. MeriTalk recently sat down with two cybersecurity and AI experts at NVIDIA – Bartley Richardson, director of cybersecurity engineering, and David Reber, the company’s chief security officer, to discuss how AI can help solve the thorniest cybersecurity challenges.
This is the third in a three-part discussion about cyber asset inventories with Tom Kennedy, vice president of Axonius Federal Systems. Part one explored the role that cyber asset inventories play in establishing a zero trust approach to cybersecurity, and part two examined Federal government requirements for reliable asset inventories and their many benefits. Part three addresses the emerging need for cyber asset attack surface management and how agencies can best meet that need.
This is the second in a three-part discussion about cyber asset inventories with Tom Kennedy, vice president of Axonius Federal Systems. In the previous interview, Kennedy spoke to MeriTalk about the role that cyber asset inventories play in establishing a zero trust approach to cybersecurity. Part two examines Federal government requirements for reliable asset inventories and their many benefits.
Cyberattacks, connected devices, and data are growing exponentially every year, into the billions, trillions, and zettabytes, respectively. Neither people nor traditional cybersecurity solutions can keep up with the data or the attacks. In this episode of MeriTalking, NVIDIA’s Killian Sexsmith and Matt Penn outline the burgeoning cybersecurity problem agencies face today and explore the Federal […]
