Symantec Gov Symposium


Track B

Cyber Reboot

Salon M

If we could wipe the slate clean – hit CTRL, ALT, DELETE – how would we reimagine the Federal IT environment? How would we consolidate for greater efficiency on an enterprise scale and rethink training? And, importantly, how would we build our integrated cyber defense, if we could start on a blank page? This session will include:

  • A no-holds-barred brainstorm on cyber security consolidation, integration, and risk management
  • Discussion on building an integrated platform approach to cyber
  • Ideas for enabling AI and automation, and ensuring that all toolsets work together
