Data-Driven Cyber Security

splunk_ls_parallax_e4_02.png

In its traditional role as the enterprise gatekeeper, cybersecurity has had mixed success. While recognized by agencies as a necessity, cyber often has been seen as an obstacle to operational performance. But that is beginning to change. With the cybersecurity executive order, the Report on Federal IT Modernization, and related policies, the administration is pushing agencies to treat cybersecurity as an integral part of their operations—enabling the development of a new generation of IT services.
