Secure Your Network & Protect Your Agency

GovLoop Cyber


U.S. government agencies whether federal, state, or local, are under constant attack from nation-state actors, criminals, and hacktivists all in search of information valuable to their cause. A recent GAO study found that reported attacks on government sites increased by 782% between 2006 and 2012. Not only has the rate of attack increased, but attacks on government networks are becoming more complex and sophisticated.

While agency IT network administrators are working hard to keep the upper hand, partners in the private sector are here to help. On Thursday, October 23rd, at 2pm NetApp and GovLoop are teaming up to provide free online training for agency IT personnel to share cyber security best practices. Lee Vorthman, CTO of NetApp’s U.S. Public Sector will provide insight on:


  • How to build agile, flexible, and dynamic architectures to support cyber analytics
  • LeeVorthman.jpgHow to build security for storage and data management strategies
  • The importance of incorporating full packet capture technology into a strategic cyber security plan

After the training session you’ll feel empowered to take on your network’s enemies and be ready to deploy smart IT strategies that will protect your data while still allowing your agency to meet its mission. To learn more about this event, or to register, click here.
