Cloud Security Alliance Federal Summit 2021 Live Event to Focus on Building Trust and Security in the New Normal

New Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity will be among key topics of discussion

SEATTLESept. 1, 2021 – The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), the world’s leading organization dedicated to defining standards, certifications, and best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment, today announced that it will host its 8th annual Federal Summit on Oct. 28 at the Washington Marriott at Metro Center (Washington, D.C.). With its theme of Reset Normal: Building Trust & Security, the Summit will address the ways in which both government and industry have adapted and collaborated to reset normal and build trust and security into people, processes, and technology.

Among the topics to be discussed will be the impact of the President’s recent Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity, as well as the ways in which the security community can help effect positive change within the federal community.

“The President’s executive order and subsequent national security memo articulate major challenges in building out our cybersecurity workforce, implementing Zero Trust strategies, attaining software assurance, and other objectives inside the federal government and within critical infrastructure sectors. CSA is committed to comprehensive collaboration between our community and federal stakeholders to make real progress in our nation’s cybersecurity capabilities using events like our Federal Summit,” said Jim Reavis, co-founder and CEO, Cloud Security Alliance.

This informative, in-person event will draw information security professionals from civilian and defense agencies, as well as innovators in cloud security, who will share case studies, lessons learned, and new technologies that promote secure implementation of cloud computing to support agency missions. A world-class program of speakers and panelists will provide perspectives on the Federal cloud computing strategy, civilian, and defense agency cloud security standards, and real-world implementation experience with state-of-the-art cloud security architectures.

This year’s event is hosted by the Cloud Security Alliance, the CSA DC chapter, and ISACA’s Greater Washington D.C. Chapter.
