Federal agencies and companies who support them have been struggling to stay ahead of ever more sophisticated cyber threats. The amendments of 2012 update the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 by establishing enhanced federal oversight of cyber security threats taking into account the evolution of digital technology that has occurred since the original legislation. The bill aims to give agencies the tools they need to effectively counter cyber threats as they exist in 2012 and beyond. This live webcast is a must attend for anyone interested in addressing cyber security threats as these regs will have a significant impact on the entire technology industry.
The Knowledge Group is producing a two-hour live webcast to help attorneys, federal agencies and their Information Security Professionals understand the latest updates and significant issues on FISMA. Our panel of thought leaders and government officials will offer practical guidance for formulating effective security policies in addition to best practices.
