The government's IT budget hasn't been squeezed this hard since Forrest Gump was on the big screen in 1994. In the next five years, agencies will focus their spending on mission-critical technology.

Cyber Security: Achieving Cyber Resilience

Faced with rapid technological advancements and increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks, organizations must act now to acquire or improve cyber resilience to protect their agencies or departments from theft, fraud and sabotage. Experience has shown that cyber resilience requires a coordinated approach across five areas: policy and compliance; budget; the IT enterprise architecture; acquisitions, and security operations. Determining where to focus first is often difficult. Many organizations begin with a situational assessment of their cyber health within the context of the current environment and their own business and mission imperatives. From there, organizations can quickly prioritize problems -business processes, operational, technological or personnel - and take decisive actions that will enhance cyber resilience and help reduce risk.

Federal CIOs Drive High Performance in Information Technology

The role of the chief information officer continues to evolve under the Obama administration. Today's federal CIOs are expected not only to drive efficiency, transparency and strengthen information and network security, but also to implement the best technologies and practices to establish and maintain relationships with citizens.

CIOs face additional pressure from the conflicting objectives of their mission. Among them: How does one balance the demand for immediate, transparent access to information while maintaining security and privacy? How does one reduce IT spending while improving services? What is the role of the CIO within the agency and how does one operationalize it?

We'll ask today's panelists to share their views on how to meet these challenges as well as their priorities for the next year. We'll also ask them to share how they are meeting the demands of both the public and the Obama administration while serving as agents of change.
