COMPLIMENTARY BRIEFING
The Watchful Eye: Mitigating Risk in the Cloud

Wednesday, December 3, 2014 | 8:00AM — 10:30AM (EST) | Washington, DC

Cost: Complimentary
Credits: 3 CPEs/CEUs

Government agencies are adopting a Cloud First approach to do more with existing resources while rapidly opening up new ways to meet citizens’ demands to engage with agencies online. Using a pay-as-you-go model, agencies can now access a broad portfolio of middleware and services, and build sophisticated apps that can transform citizen engagement.

Despite the compelling need to innovate through cloud adoption, IDC estimates that two-thirds of IT professionals consider security their #1 barrier to migrating to the cloud. Vulnerabilities such as hacking and identity theft, privacy and ownership of data, records management, and insider threats are but a few of the stumbling blocks to securely migrating government systems to the cloud.

Join government and industry experts to explore the risks associated with moving to the cloud and methods to mitigate them.

Featured Speakers:
  • Stan Kaczmarczyk, Director, Cloud Computing PMO, Integrated Technology Service, U.S. General Services Administration
  • Chuck Aaron, Deputy Chief Information Officer for Resiliency, Federal Communications Commission
  • Gunnar Hellekson, Chief Strategist, Red Hat U.S. Public Sector
  • Robert Bohn, NIST Cloud Computing Program Manager & Reference Architecture Lead, Applied and Computational Sciences Division, Information Technology Laboratory, National Institute of Standards and Technology
This Briefing Will Feature:
  • Discussion of compliance requirements such as NIST’s Federal Information Security Act (FISMA).
  • Government thought leaders introducing best practices in preparing their agencies for implementing secure cloud.
  • Certificates awarding up to 3 CPE’s accredited by The George Washington University Center for Excellence in Public Leadership.

COMPLIMENTARY BRIEFING
The CIO Agenda: Application Modernization as a Pathway to the Cloud

Tuesday, December 9, 2014 | 8:00AM – 10:00AM (EST) | McLean, VA

Cost: Complimentary

Agenda:

8:00-8:30am - Registration, Breakfast, and Networking
8:30-10:00am - Interactive Panel Discussion with Audience Participation

GAO projects that 75% of the Federal government’s IT budget is spent maintaining legacy IT systems. That’s $62 billion for software and hardware that is time-consuming to maintain and difficult to adapt to today’s demands for greater transparency and citizen access.

Government agencies are looking for a more flexible and agile IT framework. Application modernization, shared services, OMB’s Cloud First mandate, mobility and cyber security top the list of priorities, and with the Federal IT for FY 2015 stable at $80 billion, agencies are seeking ways to migrate their legacy systems to the cloud.

This briefing will bring government thought-leaders to the table to talk about their plans to innovate by modernizing their legacy systems.

You’ll Explore:
  • Legacy system migration imperatives and the steps agencies are taking to meet the mandate.
  • Tools and techniques agencies are using to address increased citizen demands for greater access to government data.
  • Best practices on path forward to aligning IT modernization strategies to deliver agency missions.
  • Government trends and acquisition plans for moving dollars from operating capital to newer technology
