by | Apr 7, 2022

Free event to feature interactive discussion on Balancing Global Collaboration with Information Security: Best Practices for Tackling Defense and Supply Chain Challenges

In the midst of a growing global cyberthreat landscape, archTIS is thrilled to bring together some of the prominent thought leaders in cybersecurity to discuss the critical security issues facing government, defense and the defense industry today in a “live” event for Government, Defense and the Defense Industrial Base. Please join us for “Balancing Global Collaboration with Information Security: Best Practices for Tackling Defense and Supply Chain Challenges” to be held on Thursday, May 5, 2022 at AUSA Conference Center, Arlington, VA, 9:00 am – 12 Noon EDT.  We are honored to participate with Carnegie Mellon University CERT-SEI Division 501(c)(3) and Carahsoft on this special cybersecurity summit.  The free event will feature prominent security subject matter experts from government and industry.

Close collaboration with allies and partners, supply chain and seamless communication, war gaming (i.e., Project Convergence, Overmatch, etc.), and research all require secure information access and sharing to be successful.  Programs such as MPE, JADC2, and requirements around Zero Trust and CMMC, aim to facilitate innovation and secure collaboration—but implementation remains a constant challenge.

Hosted by Riley Repko, USAF, SES (Ret.) and Defense Industry Advisor, the program will address these challenges in an interactive panel discussion with moderator, Chris Dorobek of GovLoop’s dorobekINSIDER. Distinguished panelists include:

  • Joanne Smail, Senior Trade and Investment Commissioner, Washington, D.C.,  Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade)
  • Derek Strausbaugh, Chief Technology Officer, Microsoft Federal (invited)
  • John Toomer, Director of Intelligence, Information and Cyber Systems, Boeing
  • Eileen M. Vidrine, Senior Strategic Advisor for Data to the Federal CIO, The White House

A “Fireside Chat” will follow with Tom Temin, host of “The Federal Drive” on Federal News Network as moderator.  Distinguished speakers include:

  • Lt. General Susan Lawrence, USA (Ret.), President and Chief Executive Officer, AFCEA International
  • Lt. General Robert J. Skinner, Director, Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), Commander of the Joint Force Headquarters – Department of Defense Information Network (invited)

Join these cybersecurity thought leaders and archTIS at the May 5th archTIS Cybersecurity Summit as they share their insights and best practices for addressing evolving information security challenges and requirements.
