Red Hat blog
In accordance with recent federal mandates, and in pursuit of innovative and powerful solutions, the emphasis on implementing open source software in the federal government has increased. While the government's digital transformation marks an exciting chapter in government technology, it can also introduce new cyber security challenges.
That’s why we created Red Hat’s Defense in Depth event – to give the best minds in government IT security an opportunity to come together to discuss solutions to these challenges.
This year, during our fourth annual Defense in Depth event, government employees, contractors and Red Hat partners will gather in Tysons Corner, Va. to discuss how open source can help accelerate innovation in government IT, and discuss best practices for open source security. Red Hat certified engineers, product managers and solution architects will also be on site to answer specific questions and to discuss government IT’s evolving security needs.
The 2016 Red Hat Defense in Depth event will feature break out sessions and speakers, including:
Delivering trusted clouds with software-defined architectures: Steve Orrin, Intel
Securing the open source supply chain: Josh Bressers, Red Hat
Extending the FedRAMP security boundary to the premise: John Keese, CSRA
