October is always a turning point seasonally – but did the roots planted during CyberSecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) bloom all the way into springtime? The short answer is yes. This designation, launched by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the National Cyber Security Alliance back in 2004, has remained steadfast, unwavering in relevance, importance end effectiveness.
In the world of Federal IT, we all know cloud and cyber are driving the conversation – especially when it comes to IT modernization. That’s why Tech Data government solutions and MeriTalk hosted the “Cyber Convergence: Security, the Cloud, and Your Data” event the morning of March 8 at the Newseum. I had the pleasure of welcoming more than 225 attendees with some opening remarks and introducing our keynote speaker, William Evanina.
