Opening Keynote Interview
The Cloud Summit kicks off with a special keynote interview.
What Does Good Cloud Security Look Like?
Cloud security is dynamic and unpredictable, but the move to hybrid work has accelerated change and increased the complexity of application security. But what do companies have to contend with in their cloud journey? Cloud security solutions must meet organizations where they are, catering to their unique needs and priorities as and when they scale and grow.
Join this session to learn more about:
- The Top 5 challenges to providing comprehensive security according to our 2,500 respondents that were surveyed in our recent study
- The top 5 incidents in cloud security & why 90% of respondents can't respond to such incidents within 1 hour
- Best practices for aligning your cybersecurity tactics with your cloud journey
Strategizing for Security
To take full advantage of the cloud, leaders must understand how to keep networks secure, from zero trust and identity and access management to data encryption, threat detection, and security automation. In this session, GovExec sits down with government leaders to detail best practices for building a comprehensive cloud security strategy tailored to your mission's needs.
Accelerating Digital Transformation on AWS
Digital transformation in government offers the opportunity to deliver better services and experiences to all its constituents. Learn how AWS is helping break down innovation barriers, and enabling public sector in tackling mission-critical operations on the cloud.
Optimizing for Better Operations
The job doesn’t stop after you move your organization’s data to the cloud. Continuous optimization is key: breaking down data silos, enabling advanced analytics, and accelerating projects. During this panel discussion, agency leaders will talk about how they have improved operations and explored practical strategies for advancing cloud capabilities.
Funding the Migration: TMF and the Cloud
Fully leveraging the power of the cloud requires the funding and resources to complete migration and implementation efforts. How is federal funding empowering leaders to lean into the cloud? In this session, we explore how funding, including TMF, is contributing to modernization efforts across the public sector.
Are You Moving Toward Sustainable Modernization?
Modernization is an ongoing process. So how do you make sure your efforts to modernize complement a long-term plan? Learn what steps you can take to ensure that you are able to modernize with flexibility and not break the bank. In this session, we will discuss the action you can take to 'future proof' your new projects against technology changes.
Collaborating for Success
Collaboration across departments and agencies has its challenges, but the rewards are many: the opportunity to set standards, share best practices, and build strategies on an enormous scale. This panel will explore how to identify potential partnerships, build stakeholder buy-in, and collaborate on cloud-enabled technologies.
How to Meet Your Mission With a Hybrid Cloud Environment
Organizations want to be able to modernize securely at their own pace and adapt over time with a flexible, open, hybrid cloud foundation and modular solutions. In this session Microsoft and Red Hat will discuss how organizations can migrate to a hybrid cloud environment to meet the needs of today and prepare for change in the future.
Building for Artificial Intelligence
Cloud services can help your organization harness the power of artificial intelligence, but there are challenges: from data security and management to budget limitations to workforce readiness. This panel will explore how government agencies can develop cloud strategies to accommodate and power artificial intelligence from the start.
Factory Fresh! Accelerating Change and Reducing Risk with Software Factories
Learn how including software factories in your modernization strategy can both reduce risk and speed the pace of innovation for government. We’ll describe the pros and cons of adopting a software factory model and share some actionable insights and lessons-learned from successful government agency implementations.
