ICIT 2023 Spring Briefing Modernization | Safer: Modernizing Critical Infrastructure
One of the paramount priorities for cybersecurity leaders is modernizing our Nation's critical infrastructure. Modernization initiatives aim to expand and deepen critical infrastructure resilience. Unfortunately, leaders tasked with modernization are grappling with infrastructures that function on legacy systems not designed with cybersecurity in mind. While agency leaders prioritize modernization initiatives, migrating legacy systems to modern, intra-, and inter-agency systems requires leaders to shift their processes to adopt an iterative, agile approach to integrating modern technologies into agency infrastructures. Successfully updating legacy systems will prepare our agencies to meet the changing needs and expectations of the citizens. Join this session to hear top experts' strategies, experiences, and practical examples of modernization initiatives.
