Today's threat landscape has never been more challenging for federal agencies. Governments face a growing torrent of cyber attacks that are growing increasingly sophisticated, stealthy, and dangerous. Legacy signature-based solutions and file-based sandbox analysis cannot detect these advanced attacks, let alone stop them. Without advanced identification and remediation tools, agencies can go weeks or even months before discovering system breaches - long after the damage is done. This paper outlines: The malware ""kill-chain"" model used in today's advanced attacks; What capabilities federal agencies need to combat advanced threats; A reimagined approach to IT security.

Employers should take note that a significant number of legal changes on the federal, state and local level have or will have a substantial impact on workplace policies and employee handbooks. It is critical for an employer to review, amend and properly update its handbook for 2018 so that it reflects the latest legal requirements. An employer also needs to understand what the legal update is and how it affects the workplace, as well as develop and implement policies, practices and procedures to remain compliant.

As 2018 comes to a close, it is critical to ensure that your organization—and more specifically, your employee handbook—is compliant with the latest legal developments on the federal, state and local levels. Whether it’s a new state law or an amendment to an existing local law, as an employer, you must determine whether a new or amended law affects your handbook and workplace policies and what revisions are necessary.

Compliance mandates in the form of industry standards and Federal rules like NERC, FFIEC, HIPAA/HITECH and PCI-DSS are the new norm. To stay in compliance, IT teams need to be able to keep up with updatesand changes to existing mandates while also being prepared for new ones.

Today, government IT teams are expected to deliver more services with fewer resources. Consequently, many agencies have prioritized legacy modernization, interoperability, and shared service models as a means towards increasing IT delivery capacity. We propose that successful execution of these initiatives within the confines of a strictly managed budget requires a new approach to integration, one centered around APIs. Our recommended approach, API-led connectivity, builds on the principles of re-use first outlined by SOA, while avoiding many of the pitfalls that limited the success of heavyweight SOA implementations. In this whitepaper, you will learn: What forces drive digital transformation in federal government, and what role integration plays in supporting digital transformation How a civilian federal agency leveraged APIs to modernize legacy systems and accelerate the speed of integration How to build out an API-led architecture within a government agency to accelerate project

"In the wake of recent legislative pressures and the formation of the Digital Transformation Agency, Australian state and federal government agencies face an imperative to deliver superior digital services to employees and citizens without a corresponding increase in budget. As a result, many agencies have turned to IT modernisation as a means of driving more cost-effective digital transformation. The key to successful execution of digital transformation initiatives depends on a new approach to integration and API strategy called API-led connectivity. In this whitepaper, you will learn: -Why Australian government agencies must change how they deliver IT projects, and the role integration and an API strategy play in supporting the modernisation of government IT -How to build out an API-led architecture within a government agency to realise 2-5x increases in IT productivity -How best practice from initiatives like Service NSW provide a model for government agencies to pursue digital t
