IT Modernization is the Key to Effective Cybersecurity
Phil Venables, Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), Google Cloud
Outdated technology remains a significant challenge for those defending the nation’s critical systems and infrastructure. Making big investments in cybersecurity tooling without upgrading the wider technology environment is like building on a foundation of sand. Modernizing a technology environment should result in a more inherently defensible platform where security is built-in, not bolted-on. This includes adopting a modern security architecture based on principles of zero trust for user access as well as production applications. Modern technology systems and practices create the ability to make frequent security updates and changes safely, a critical part of cyber-defense for both the federal government and the private sector. Learn how government agencies can accelerate their IT modernization by investing in modern public cloud environments that are designed with built-in security protections.
