Updated: Feb 12, 2023

2nd in the Series of DevSecOps Accelerated ATO

As Agencies develop more online services and systems to meet the mission of the Government, their appetite and need to develop and deploy applications rapidly continues to grow. Many Agencies are embracing DevSecOps and cloud services as a way to release these applications quickly; however, the need to meet compliance standards (i.e. RMF, STIG, FISMA, HIPAA, etc.) to obtain their Authority to Operate (ATO) can slow down the process, or lead to exhaustive POAMs.

At the October 29, 2020 briefing, a panel of experts from the Industry to discussed how Government agencies take advantage of rapid development/deployment techniques, such as DevSecOps, while meeting their ATO and security requirements in the same timely fashion. These distinguished panelists highlighted real world examples of how this is being achieved in Govt today, while addressing live from the audience.

Panelists: – Dr. Ron Ross – Fellow, NIST & 2019 ICIT Pioneer – Ron Thompson – ICIT Contributor & Chief Data Officer and Associate CIO, NASA – Steven Pruskowski – ICIT Contributor & CISA, ST&E Federal Lead, Department of Homeland Security – Daniel “Danny” Holtzman – ICIT Contributor & Cyber Technical Director, Department of the Air Force – Moderator: Nick Sinai – Insight Partners, Harvard Kennedy School, Obama White House (former US Deputy CTO) – Joyce Hunter – Executive Director, ICIT & Former Deputy CIO for Policy and Planning, USDA
