A How-To: Replicating White House's Swat Team’s Security Best Practices
Summary: Since its 2014 launch, the U.S. Digital Service has ushered in a new era of digital modernization -- and a fresh way of delivering modern-day government services. Drawing from tech best practices from innovation hubs across the country, digital service teams across agencies have, in their own words, built a more awesome government. Team leaders at DHS, VA and DOD will talk about how USDS continues to solve big problems through tech and design with a security-first mindset, whether it’s streamlining access to veterans services, hacking the Pentagon, or overhauling an immigration benefits system.

CXO’s Cyber State of Mind
Summary: How do CXOs across the intelligence community, defense and civilian agencies develop the best strategies to implement new emerging technologies?

And how do CXOs stay ahead of cyber adversaries that seem to become more sophisticated, more relentless every day. Leaders will share their lessons learned, the dos and don’ts and perspectives from across the tech and policy spaces -- from Silicon Valley and the uniformed services to IT strategy and space-based communications.
