With growing threats from a tech savvy adversary, Federal agencies need to embrace advanced risk management and modernization practices proven effective in the global IT market.

 

If you look at the Trump agenda, you understand that the government is trying to maximize the use of commercial innovation, commercial standards and commercial best practices, and in doing so, direct that at the modernization and security of legacy systems that right now are the #1 cyber threat.

 

The program will cover the topics of risk-managed digital transformation and the practical application of systems engineering to support agile acquisition, cloud readiness, big data, technical debt control, and cyber risk management of complex mission, C2, weapon and citizen-facing systems.
