Join us May 24-25th, 2023 in person and on-line for the latest Zero Trust thought leadership, technology trends, NIST research and a hands on service mesh workshop.
Today, cybersecurity incidents from ransomware and phishing to denial-of-service attacks dominate the news. An increase in cloud applications, mobile devices, remote workers and IoT-connected devices has forced organizations to align their security policies based on business intent. Every organization needs to account for that dynamic. But it’s particularly challenging for government agencies given the realities and complications of procurement requirements and certifying that solutions meet operating standards.
Embracing Zero Trust can transform your security posture and connectivity, while supporting business agility in the face of new challenges. The principles of Zero Trust are simple: Never trust; always verify. Zero Trust protects your organization in ways other models can’t. It stops malware from entering your network; gives remote workers more protection without affecting productivity; simplifies management of security operations centers with enhanced automation; and extends visibility into potential threats to improve proactive remediation and response.
Whether your organization is already deploying Zero Trust or the term is completely new to you, it is important to understand just what Zero Trust is all about, how it can protect your organization and how to implement it most effectively.
Together with NIST and the U.S. Department of Commerce (DoC), I’m excited to announce the 4th annual Multi-Cloud Conference and Workshop – Zero Trust and High Assurance for Cloud-Native Applications, May 24-25th in Washington, D.C. The conference program features both thought leadership and actionable insight from experts in service mesh, Zero Trust Architecture, identity-centric security, open-source software development and emerging NIST special publications. Presentations will cover a wide range of topics including:
- NIST recommendations for realization of Zero Trust principles in cloud-native applications
- Authentication and Access Control for user/service/devices in cloud-native applications in multi-cloud environments
- The role of open source in cloud-native application security and compliance
- Best practices and common pitfalls for implementing a Zero Trust Architecture
Don’t miss the opportunity to hear from cybersecurity experts who will provide practical insight for implementing a foundation of Zero Trust and delivering high assurance for cloud-native applications. Speakers include:
- Justin Antonipillai, CEO, Wirewheel
- Matt Bates, Cloud-native CTO, Venafi
- David Ferraiolo, Manager, Secure Systems and Applications Group, NIST
- Ross Foard, CISA, Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
- Edd Wilder-James, VP, Open Source, Sysdig Robert Wood, CISO, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)
This year’s event will be both in person and online, with free registration. Policy makers, entrepreneurs, students and cybersecurity professionals are encouraged to attend!
