FISMA A New Path Forward

October 5, 2010 • Washington, DC

Changes to FISMA will have a revolutionary impact ... propelled by new OMB directives announced on April 21.

Join this world-class lineup of speakers and you will hear directly about these revolutionary changes: what does the move to continuous monitoring mean for you and your organization...and what's next?

The OMB requirements, in fact, are ushering in the greatest changes to FISMA in over a decade. They emphasize the introduction of an effective "continuous monitoring" system for all government IT systems.

You will hear a keynote by pioneer John Streufert from the U.S. State Department named CISO of the Year in 2010 by Government Executive. Mr. Streufert's innovation in "continuous monitoring" allows the State Department to evaluate its information technology systems every two to 15 days. This reduced security risks by 90 percent.

You will then hear an expert panel led by Robert Brammer, Vice President for Advanced Technology and CTO, Northrop Grumman Information Systems. Bob will be joined by Ron Ross, Senior Computer Scientist at NIST whose publications include the influential NIST Special Publication 800-37, and Matt Coose, Director of Federal Network Security at DHS.

Come ready with your questions in this intimate setting which encourages an interactive experience for you. Don't miss this special and timely event.
