Encompassing Resilience Throughout the Entire Enterprise

Monday, September 18

Inherent to technology based resilience solutions are best practices in product design, cyber governance policy, insider threat management, legal implications, and forward looking preparation at new emerging threats. Resilience impacts both commercial and national security venues. Resilience is the justified confidence all systems will function as intended and are free of exploitable vulnerabilities. Vulnerabilities are both symptomatic to product design and business practices. Industry can benefit from collaborating on best practices for information assurance and protection that can be shared between the national security community and industry leaders. Agencies with national security risks currently deploy measures to protect and defend sensitive data and intellectual property within the technology systems and the enterprise governance model. The measures include restoration of critical systems, detection capabilities and real-time analytics, and preventive and reactionary best practices. In addition, extensive measures are employed to assure sourced product information is protected to the greatest degree possible with a trusted supply chain. The panel of distinguished experts will discuss and answer questions regarding cyber best practices for product design in an IoT world, enterprise governance policy and legal implications, insider threat awareness, data protection within trusted supply chain, and looking at cyber threats on the horizon.
