NSA to Join DoD, DHS, and Dept of State at Defense Strategies Institute’s Mobile Security for Defense and Government Summit

On July 26 – 27, 2016, senior leaders within DoD, the Intelligence Community, Federal Agencies and Industry and Academia will convene in Alexandria, VA, for two days of off the record briefings and informal discussions at Defense Strategies Institute’s "Town Hall" Mobile Security for Defense and Government Summit. Their central theme will be on “Improving Enterprise Mobility through Security and Innovation.”

Washington, DC, May 25, 2016 --( Innovation leveraged by mobility will be a driving force for the DoD in the future.

However, while each Service has their unique set of mission requirements and strategies towards implementing a more mobile enterprise, the whole of DoD and Federal agencies face the challenge of ensuring the security and integrity of such systems.

It is not just about the device, but rather it is about the infrastructure supporting the device and the entire data strategy of the enterprise and how it supports mobility. The DOD wants mobile devices to be able to be used in the hands of the warfighter anywhere anytime...but through an enterprised approach.

For the federal agencies, more organizations are moving toward mobile computing for internal mission and public-serving applications, acknowledging the role that mobility has towards driving workplace efficiency and satisfaction. With the transition, however, come more concerns for the safety and integrity of government data in those applications.

“We have created a Summit that will bring together a variety of stakeholders in order to build out two days of discussion and debates that tackle many of the areas involved in enhancing effective and efficient enterprise mobility and operational capabilities amongst the mobile community,” stated Monica Mckenzie, Senior Partner, Defense Strategies Institute.

DSI’s upcoming Summit recognizes that in a field such as mobility, where there are multiple offices, departments and industry supporters acting in tandem, it is extremely important that all involved are working towards a cohesive and holistic approach.

16 speakers will present during the Summit. Several include:

MajGen Sarah Zabel, USAF, Vice Director, DISA

Mr. Curtis Dukes, Director, Information Assurance Directorate, NSA

Mr. Victor Gavin, PEO, PEO EIS, U.S. Navy

Mr. Peter Gouldmann, Director, Information Technology Security Compliance Office, Department of State

Mr. Ken Carlberg, Chief Technologist, Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau, FCC

Mr. Richard Jones, Federal Mobility 2.0 PM, GSA

Topics will include:
1- Improving overarching data strategies to support enhanced mobility accessibility and usability
2- Getting security controls and risk mitigation technologies as close to the data and access as possible
3- Working towards DOD PKI derived credentials and other IdAM capabilities to ensure the security of mobile devices
4- Improving the security and monitoring of applications: native apps, third-party apps, custom apps and integrations
5- Mobile device management services (MDM) and virtual mobile infrastructure technologies
6-Where the DoD and Federal Agencies can take advantage of innovative technologies with mobile integration

Seating is limited.
