_____________________________________________________________________________________________ About the Summit & Why You Should Attend
  • Both the DoD and Federal agencies are increasingly turning to mobile devices to meet the needs of a more agile workforce. The need for mobility has also brought unique security challenges to the forefront; these challenges need to be met in order to safeguard government networks and the multitude of devices that have access to them.
  • It is not only about the device; it is also about the infrastructure supporting the device and the entire data strategy of the enterprise and how it supports mobility. Ensuring the government controlled mobile enterprise will be a significant security challenge; this is largely due to the constant and rapid evolution of threats to that enterprise.
  • For the federal agencies, more organizations are moving toward mobile and cloud computing for internal mission and public-serving applications, acknowledging the role that mobility has towards driving workplace efficiency and satisfaction.  With the transition, however, has come concerns for the safety and integrity of government data in those applications.
  • You can expect to hear from OSD, the Military Services, and Federal Government agency counterparts.
