January Monthly Speaker Series: Trailblazing Women in Government

Clyde's of Gallery Place (map)

Join AFFIRM for on January 25 for our monthly speaker series.

Each month, our speaker series brings a panel of government experts to discuss cutting-edge issues in the Federal IT community.

Since the passage of the Pendleton Act of 1883, it has been a fundamental value of civil service to draw from all segments of society, and the first woman to be appointed to the U.S. Civil Service was Treasury Department employee Mary Hoyt in September of 1883.

Now over a century later, diversity of experience and perspective in government continue to flourish.  Women in the public sector have played pivotal roles in moving toward a more open, innovative, and responsive government.

This panel will discuss the path to successfully maintain a workforce that reflects gender-diversity and the attributes that make both men and women successful in information technology fields in the Federal workforce today.

February Monthly Speaker Series: Technology Business Management - A Closer Look

Clyde's of Gallery Place (map)

Join us on February 22 for this timely topic and and lively discussion on the government's move to Technology Business Management (TBM). TBM is a way to drive the discussion about spending on business and technology, especially in this current federal budget climate.

The Administration's goal to modernize, better secure and reduce spending on technology is anchored by TBM standards.  These standards allow agencies to model and manage IT costs and services to better direct spending.  Several agencies -- DOJ, GSA and FDA -- have already implemented TBM, though OMB leaders recognize that moving to TBM across government is a major undertaking.

Join us for an informative and engaging discussion on TBM with OMB's Margie Graves and agency leaders from OMB, DOJ, FDA, GSA, and more on February 22.

5th Annual Cybersecurity Summit

CenturyLink (map)

Federal agencies are facing ever more sophisticated adversaries and threats that place our privacy, our economy, and our Nation at risk.

These cyber threats are diverse and include the prevalence of malicious actors who operate globally at will; the growth of risks from the Internet of Things, and increasingly complex networks, all elevating the security and resilience of cyberspace to a critical homeland security imperative. Exacerbating these challenges is a shortfall in cybersecurity and IT talent that effects not on the Federal government, but the private sector as well.

Cybersecurity is a dynamic and crosscutting field that is ever changing and increasingly challenging to address.

This in-depth, half-day session will gather an all-star line-up of chief information officers, chief information security officers, and other thought leaders from government and industry who will explore growing threats as well as innovative approaches to attract and retain the best cyber talent.

The 5th Annual Cybersecurity Summit is a place for important discussions about the challenges with cyber-security and is also a significant benefit both for the AFFIRM scholarship program, which helps students focused on IT skills... and is the largest support for USCC's summer camp program, which focuses on cybersecurity.
