Government Telework, Teamwork, & Security in 2020


2020 marks the start of a new era in government IT. Even compared to a few months ago, the governments’ operational needs and security priorities have undergone a paradigm shift. Federal, State, and Local government IT leaders are quickly scaling work from home support to unprecedented levels, despite many organizations lacking needed infrastructure and security controls for a perimeterless work environment.

Join government and industry experts to discuss how agencies are adapting to the changing environment to meet the needs of the immediate crisis. Equally important, we’ll ask how these circumstances can inspire long-term change in how employees, partners, and contractors to securely connect.

Our live panel will discuss:

  • Security: Scaling agency remote workforces
  • Access: Delivering access on-prem and in the cloud and keep the environment secure with VPN enhancements or alternatives
  • Collaboration: Improving agency collaboration across shared resources
