Event Description

Cyber adversaries continue to become more sophisticated in their attack methodologies almost daily. In turn, the demand for greater innovation and data-driven decision-making is driving an evolution in cybersecurity. Utilizing artificial intelligence (AI), data, machine learning (ML), and next-generation tools to actively defend critical and DoD infrastructure is a necessity. Enter Zero Trust.

Over the course of the next five years, the DoD will be moving to a Zero Trust Architecture which adopts a least privilege approach for all transactions and will no longer apply trust by user, device, or network location.

Join CrowdStrike and World Wide Technologies Panel Discussion as we discuss how organizations can leverage AI and ML to enable Zero Trust priorities in defense of DoD networks and the innovation ecosystem. Topics will include:
