Cyberattacks in the technology sector have certainly impacted the public and private sector, including the DoD. Everyone relies on technology to operate, and IT is critical to our resilience and continuity. These attacks have highlighted the need for enhanced collaboration within the industry and deeper public and private partnerships to help improve IT security.
 
The risks in today’s environment aren’t insurmountable but require resilience and a rethinking of how to approach risk-based decisions. Part of what makes cybersecurity so challenging is that IT systems tend to have a lot of components from multiple sources. If one component has a vulnerability, the whole system is vulnerable. That’s why it’s so important to understand the IT supply chain.
 
We will also discuss in detail what tools, people, and processes can help the DoD avoid attacks or respond to, recover from, and continue to operate after being attacked. Discussion topics include protecting endpoints, leveraging segmentation, baselines, system and network mapping, zero trust, and managing risks.
