In the next few years, there will be 25 million network connected devices, all subject to malware attack, and public sector networks are by far the biggest target. The Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act is driving agencies to improve the management of their information assets and, through license compliance and up-to-date security patch adherence, to close the door to cyber-attacks.
This webinar explores best practices in disciplined practices such as patch management and strong network controls that agencies are using for endpoint management.
What you will learn
- Review GAOs recommendations for implementing sustainable processes for securing network devices, patching vulnerable systems and replacing unsupported software.
- Delineate methods being used by agencies to keep software continuously updated through an automated process that precludes time-consuming manual software maintenance.
- Identify methods to employ mobile device management to control and build government bring your own device (BYOD) programs.
- Explain the benefits of third-party patching, USB port security, and developing a least privileged environment as part of the overall strategy.
