This August the 30th at the Washington DC Walter E. Washington Convention Center will be the Symantec Government Symposium: Actionable Intelligence Stay Smart, Stay Secure. These guys are the ones behind the curtain doing the work to keep people like me typing on a computer safe. They monitor activity from the cloud, to the network edge, and finally to endpoints. Yes they’re in it from start to finish and never missing a beat on the way. They’re generating more secure data than ever before in the year 2016 and their projected goals for years to come. So rest assured because of them, we are more safe than before, and we can continue to explore the vast landscape on the internet world without major fears. You can register now for this event via their website, but hurry because spots are limited, and August is a busy time at this convention center near our Washington DC B&B.
A great idea is to get your work involved. Promote workforce awareness of the Symantec Government Symposium: Actionable Intelligence Stay Smart, Stay Secure by word of mouth or send out a general email. By incorporating a team to attend this event, together, you’ll encourage workforce team building as well as educational exploration. Plus, these discussions can continue after the conference ends. It’s a great way to share and compare notes, answer follow-up questions with your perspective on what you learned, and examine closely the issues at hand with cyber security.
Speakers that will be present at this event are people like David Behen—Chief Information Officer, State of Michigan; David Blankenhorn—Chief Technology Officer, DLT Solutions; Kelley Bray—Employee Trust Lead, Global Security Office, Symantec; Beth Cobert—Acting Office of Personnel Management…and so on. Have a great time come this August, and remember to be safe on the web.
