8:45am – Capstone Revisited: So How Is Your Agency Doing with Email Retention?

Since the end of 2016, NARA has required email to be managed in electronic form. On the order of 250 federal agency components voluntarily have adopted NARA’s Capstone approach to meeting their email obligations. How is it working? What challenges have agencies faced? And are agencies considering expanding Capstone to include other types of electronic messages (texts, chats, ephemeral apps) sent by senior agency officials?

10:30am – FREEDOM: A Proven Software as a Service (SaaS) Cloud RM Platform

FREEDOM stands for Federal Records Enterprise Electronic Document Management. It was developed to satisfy the ERM needs of any size agency or budget. Reducing costs without compromising enterprise functionality is central to the service’s architecture. The concept is to allow any agency to virtually “turn on” the system, easily configure a few settings, then begin ingesting documents via scanning or electronic uploads into a fully compliant system including all necessary workflows from ingest to NARA disposition.

Babi Das, President & CEO, Data Federal Corporation

11:00am – Protecting Information Through Compliant Data Destruction

Federal agencies are progressing in their transition to a digital-first environment. This environment is evolving quickly due to the nature of technology proliferation. In this session, find out the four key factors driving the need for comprehensive IT Asset Disposition in the Federal Government.

Tyler Morris, Senior Director, Public Sector Programs & Strategy, Iron Mountain

11:30am – EEOC Benefits from FedRAMP Digital Transformation Platform

Manual processes and outdated systems create a lag in responding to FOIA requests accurately and efficiently. Now more than ever, making government records available for citizen access is critical for transparency. How can your agency meet these demands quickly and securely? This session will cover how the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is meeting their FOIA request demands by utilizing a FedRAMP FOIA and Case Management solution within the Armedia Content Cloud.

11:00am – Rethinking EA: The Lighthouse

Over the past decade, the question has shifted from whether there is value in doing Enterprise Architecture (EA) in an organization to how the value of EA can be maintained in an organization. Delivering EA capabilities efficiently in the federal sector continues to be a challenge. In the current maturing information environments, using data-driven analytics is accepted as an important aspect for managing organizations, be it at the enterprise level or at the project level. Enterprise Architecture provides an effective way to supply relevant organizational data. This session will present a case-study for successfully deploying an EA capability that is flexible and responsive at the U.S. Courts Administrative Office (AO) Cloud Technologies and Hosting Office (CTHO) Architecture Branch (AB). The framework structures EA functions as service offerings, enabling the office to ebb and flow EA functions with changing customer needs.

Rosana R. Stoica, Chief, Service and Business Management Staff, U.S. Courts

11:30am – Roadmap to Zero Trust: Lessons from Cloud Adoption

An enterprise architecture roadmap is a strategic blueprint to communicate how an organization’s IT plans can help the organization achieve its business objectives. A roadmap is a tool to visually demonstrate the link between an agency’s IT planning and mission. Some examples of their use include communicating change management plans, implementing digital transformation efforts and to assist with new or changing regulations like Zero Trust.

As cloud infrastructure becomes more complex, cloud costs can become a challenge to track. Many public sector agencies, once in the Cloud, are interested in finding cost-effective ways to maximize cloud usage and efficiency. Cloud cost management is the organizational planning allowing an enterprise to understand and manage the costs and the needs associated with its cloud technology. The “pay for what you use” model can result in significant savings, but it can be easy for costs to spiral out of control. This session will cover how an agency can employ a cloud cost management strategy to make the most of their cloud infrastructure and keep costs down.

12:15pm – Visit Exhibit Hall – Attendee Networking Lunch

1:30pm – Cloud First to Cloud Smart – IT Modernization Implementation Lessons Learned

Cloud First policy began during a time when cloud computing was still a relatively new technology in the public sector in 2010. In 2018, the policy shifted to Cloud Smart acknowledging multiple new cloud capabilities that emerged since Cloud First. The new policy was founded on three pillars of successful cloud adoption: security, procurement, and workforce. This panel session will share how agencies are modernizing technologies and practices by harness new capabilities to enable agency mission and improve service to citizens.

Are you getting more time back than you put in with your analytics project? How long does it take to onboard a new dataset? Who views what dashboards and how long? These, and other questions will better help you understand the value of the data and analytics routinely put together on projects. Often, these questions will unlock differently understandings of what is extremely valuable and what may not be important at all, not just from the immediate stakeholders but from the entire organization.

8:30am – Large Scale Zero Trust Cultural Change: From C-Suite to Practitioners

Many within government IT security community believe for Zero Trust to be successful it is essential to create an organization wide Zero Trust culture. The Zero Trust philosophy requires agencies to get everyone to recognize they have a vested interest in security. Cybersecurity leaders must lead by having the right conversations within their agencies. This kick off panel session at Zero Trust @930gov will gather key government IT security professionals to share how to develop and inspire trust to succeed with Zero Trust.

11:45am – Zero Trust in the Security Operations Center

Zero Trust is a security framework requiring all users, whether in or outside the agency’s network, to be authenticated, authorized, and continuously validated for security before being granted access to applications and data. Zero Trust is an ongoing process requiring continued refinement as each agency’s business requirements and subsequent technology shifts occur. Continuous monitoring is a core component in any Zero Trust strategy and goes beyond any single security tool. This makes the role of the Security Operations Center (SOC) critical to continually audit and maintain the agency’s Zero Trust security posture. Even if a government agency has a mature Zero Trust implementation securing users, applications and workloads, the agency still needs a SOC for threat detection, response, and risk management. This session will focus on the benefits of automating the Security Event and Incident Management in the SOC to provide security analysts with real-time, actionable data to enable agencies to better investigate and remove threats effectively and efficiently.

12:15pm – Visit Exhibit Hall – Attendee Networking Lunch

1:30pm – How to Apply Zero Trust Methodology into Existing Systems

The Federal Government has acknowledged Zero Trust as an effective means to prevent cyberattacks. But where should an agency begin the process? Following existing cyber security procedures has left some agencies hesitant to begin their Zero Trust journey. This panel of subject matter experts will share ideas on how to augment existing security architecture with Zero Trust principles while allowing agencies to take advantage of tools & technologies already available.

Don Maclean, Chief Cyber Security Technologist, DLT Solutions

2:00pm – How to Create a Comprehensive Zero Trust Strategy

Many agencies are in the process of developing a comprehensive Zero Trust Strategy with the goal of implementation throughout the enterprise. Essential components of a successful Zero Trust transformation include effective communication, changing culture, coordination, adjusting processes, and training personnel. It also involves monitoring, collecting, and measuring data to compare against previously established metrics for success. This closing session will summarize the steps and processes agencies can take to ensure long-term security of their systems.
