2A: Security in an Open Source World (Technical)
Balancing conflicting goals of security and timeliness to market
Growing citizen needs and demands are driving transformation & modernization efforts across public and private sector entities. The biggest hurdle in most traditional IT organizations is that development and operations teams haven’t always held shared priorities. Developers are the creative minds behind application development, while operations is focused on standardization and control. Unfortunately, both teams are often mired in the government-required security processes which can delay projects by weeks, months, and sometimes years, even as time to mission becomes more critical than ever.
Join this session to understand:
- How do modern development (ie, Agile, Scrum) methodologies integrate with the NIST Risk Management Framework?
- How do we simplify & modernize the Authority to Operate (ATO) process?
- What automation technology exists that can be used today?
- Lessons learned from those who are responsible for productizing and operationalizing digital services
What, if any, “shared cyber services” exist across government entities and how can they be used?
Shawn Wells, Red Hat
Josh Lospinoso, Ph.D., CAPT, U.S. Cyber Command
2B: Security in an Open Source World (Managerial)
Upstream Innovation to Secure Implementation: Considerations for Open Source in your Enterprise
Requiring custom-developed software to be made available for sharing and re-use across government agencies, the Federal Source Code Policy requires agencies to release at least 20% of new source code to the public. The Federal Source Code Policy evolves the government from merely consuming open source software to collaborating and creating new open source communities.
With the introduction of agencies like 18F and the US Digital Service, and trailblazers like Netflix & Amazon, how are government agencies and commercial partners balancing innovation with security?
This panel will address common questions such as:
- How do you find the right open source solutions and consume them in a secure manner?
- How have agencies transitioned from consumer to collaborator with open source software?
- How do agencies engage code.gov? What about non-federal repositories?
