 “The recent FISMA 2012 report highlighted a troubling figure: 90% of the $13.3 billion spent on cybersecurity in 2012 went to personnel,” explained Van Ristau, chief technology officer at DLT Solutions. “IT security automation can greatly reduce that number. The GovDefenders Cybersecurity Virtual Forum will focus on helping government IT professionals discover those opportunities by connecting them directly to the companies developing the security solutions they use.”

The GovDefenders Cybersecurity Virtual Forum will feature experts discussing a broad range of topics including: the cloud shared security model, continuous monitoring, enabling trust through secure collaboration and interoperability, and real world cybersecurity threat examples.  Highlights include:

  • Keynote speakers
  • Industry expert panel
  • Concurrent virtual seminars from industry experts
  • A virtual exhibit hall – meet industry experts, interact, and download useful resources
  • A meet-up area where attendees can mingle with your peers and industry experts
