                        In recent years, China has been more aggressive in the Indo-Pacific region and across the globe. Russia and other countries such as North Korea and Iran continue to present new threats. In this panel, warfare community leaders will discuss how they are improving capabilities within their man, train, and equip charter to deter potential adversaries, and if necessary, be prepared to prevail should conflict arise. However, are we moving rapidly enough? Watch Livestream...

                          Securing DoD Enterprise Innovation with ICAM Agency modernization, expanding cloud deployments, and distributed workforces create new planes of privilege for adversaries to exploit. When designing the future state of The Defense Department’s complex enterprise network, a least-privilege approach is critical to keep pace with adversaries and lower your attack surface. With users and devices now accessing critical information, systems, and applications from anywhere, the mindset must be to never trust, always verify, and only allow privileged access when needed or contextual parameters are met.

                              Software is the glue that connects people and systems, across every industry, and enables them to solve problems. Given its pervasiveness, even if your organization does not produce its own software, you can no longer afford to ignore the associated cybersecurity risks. Just like modern manufacturing, software developers reuse existing third-party components to reduce costs. A custom software project can incorporate hundreds of such third-party components, forming a software supply chain. The most popular third-party software components are used in thousands of applications, including defense and critical infrastructure, and can present a global Achilles heel.

                                              The cloud represents many inversions: from one data center to many centers of data, from applications and data and workers on the inside to the outside, from security departments approving everything to departments being bypassed. Security controls built for earlier eras are blind to today’s traffic; security practices designed in earlier eras are ineffective with today’s architectures. Legacy network security models assume a rigid perimeter and implicitly trust everything inside—assumptions that leave you vulnerable when the internet replaces the LAN. A new model is required, one with an inversion of its own: from trust but verify to verify then trust. Zero... ...read more...

                                                    For the DOD, future 5G wireless technology could be a transformative platform to help improve network infrastructure and system integration. Multi-access edge compute (MEC) infrastructure can help to compute data with low latency and make decisions at the network edge.  Ideally, IT systems, networks, wireless/IoT devices, and connected/autonomous vehicles should be able to seamlessly and securely work together to deliver data to the right person at the right place and at the right time.  A use case example of this and more is on the roadmap for Marine Corps Air Station Miramar.

The Noblis Pieces of Eight (Po8) system enables connected machines to share situational awareness of obstacles and threats projected over time. It allows them to collectively plan motion paths and other actions that avoid collisions or conflicts. This interoperability permits high-speed motion and coordinated actions which are impossible without advance knowledge of all the localized actions.

A continuous, incremental modernization of legacy application is less risky and OPEX may be used. Continuous Application Modernization (C-AppMod) is an innovative approach designed to reduce the existing applications’ technical debt and leverage emerging technologies to deliver continuous business... ...read more...
