In its recent report, “The Federal Government’s Track Record on Cybersecurity and Critical Infrastructure,” the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee highlighted significant security issues within key agencies, increasing pressure to improve security measures across all levels.

The Federal Summit will feature presentations and panel discussions from leading authorities on cybersecurity, digital investigations, e-discovery, and government policy.

The 2014 Federal Summit provides a rare opportunity to learn emerging best practices from experts who are setting new cybersecurity standards within government agencies.”
