Panelist - Ed Bassett, Chief Information Security Officer, NeoSystems LLC
Panelist - Rob Wilson, Chief Operations Officer, NeoSystems LLC
Panelist - Larry Clinton, President, Internet Security Alliance (ISA)


Cloud security continues to be of great importance to government contractors. Virtualization is a critical part of cloud computing and provides an important layer of abstraction from physical hardware, enabling the elasticity and resource pooling commonly associated with cloud. Virtualized operating systems are the backbone of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Recent developments in software defined networking (SDN) show great potential to virtualize data networks in the same way that operating systems have been virtualized. This panel will examine these trends, and will speak to how these industry developments will shape the future for government contracting in the cloud.

Workforce Readiness - Hiring Talent to Fill the Shortage of Qualified Tech Workers
Christine Jung, President and Founder, Blue Compass LLC
Brian Johnson, Senior Recruiting Director, NeoSystems LLC


According to FedScoop, “Office of Management and Budget (OMB) officials outlined several plans to reshape the federal workforce within the budget plan, including $50Million fund to improve federal recruitment and retention of personnel as new technologies disrupt (some) jobs.” But the problem is not unique to the Federal Government as all organizations are struggling to find and retain talent.

We will discuss this critical labor shortage and offer some insights into what the academic and business community is doing to train, hire and retain talent.
