The final Federal IT modernization report was released in December to complement agency efforts to modernize citizen facing services – by moving to a more secure, agile, and cost effective infrastructure, much of which is to be provided by shared services.
Tapping expertise from both industry and government leaders, the American Technology Council focused on modernization efforts to improve the security posture of Federal IT.
This panel will discuss how this approach will enhance government’s cybersecurity posture, modernize the Federal IT enterprise, and create a more robust partnership between Government and industry.
- Understand the Federal IT Modernization Report and its approach to maximize secure use of cloud computing, modernize Government-hosted applications, and securely maintain legacy systems.
- Review the concept of technology high risk and high value assets and the need for security and privacy of these Federal datasets.
- Define shared services and explore its use for adopting centralized offerings for commodity IT.
