On March 15th you’re invited to meet with chief scientists, Federal CIOs, public/private IT leaders, and standards bodies dedicated to advancing the resiliency of software and software-intensive systems.  

 

The Cyber Resilience Summit will accelerate cyber discipline, covering: legacy IT modernization, software quality and security standards, automating risk management into digital services, leveraging FITARA and NDAA IT reform directives, and IT acquisition best practices. The afternoon includes an IT Acquisition Workshop to demonstrate how to add software quality metrics and cyber risk requirements to vendor contracts. Attendees will gain best practices for complying with FITARA and IT acquisition best practices.
