Data-Driven Security: 
Getting Smarter about Cyber Defense

As agencies move forward with transformation initiatives—as they increase their investments in the cloud, mobility and related technologies that both extend the enterprise and expand their attack surface area—they will find it increasingly difficult to monitor and respond to cyber threats. One solution is data: leveraging machine learning and artificial intelligence to gain deep visibility into the enterprise and to detect potential threats before damage can be done.
At this event, we will discuss data-driven approaches to cybersecurity and how they fit into an agency’s overarching cyber strategy—with a focus on technologies, policies and workforce strategies that support data-driven cyber initiatives. This breakfast is part of the first series of AFCEA Bethesda’s 2019-2020 program year, which is focused on how cybersecurity can support transformation efforts.
