Centrify to Chair the ICIT Winter Summit – Redefines Cyber Offense for Federal Agencies

Exclusive event showcases how to empower federal agencies with a Zero Trust security model to stay ahead of cyber threats

January 17, 2018

ARLINGTON, VA — Chaired and underwritten by Centrify, the ICIT Winter Summit is a must-attend event for federal government and public sector security professionals. The event will be held on January 29, 2018 and feature influential federal cybersecurity leaders who will provide strategic thought leadership insights into important security topics challenging civilian and defense agencies as well as the intelligence community.

WHAT: With 20 engaging sessions and 40 speakers and industry experts, attendees will learn how technologies and strategies such as Zero Trust security, access management, machine learning, SecDevOps, encryption, and IT Modernization can drive automation, result in more secure networks, enable compliance with regulatory mandates and create environments that deter cyber adversaries. The event will also feature an exclusive session that will explore Ingredients of a Russian Influence Operation: Fake News, Propaganda, and the Threat to our Democracy.

WHY: Among IT and cybersecurity leaders, the term “Offensive Cybersecurity” is often exclusively associated with classified military and intelligence community initiatives. This narrow interpretation does not reflect the realities of today's increasingly complex digital canvas of identities that live in and out of the enterprise changing the perimeter of the network — to no perimeter at all. The impact has driven the need for government agencies to embrace a Zero Trust security model — to ensure every user, on any endpoint is verified and then given just the amount of privilege and access required in order to decrease the chance of a major breach.

Ray Letteer, Chief, Cybersecurity Division, US Marine Corps
