Guidance Software Inc. (NASDAQ:GUID), the World Leader in Digital Investigations™, announced its second annual Federal Summit: “A Focus on Data Visibility,” to be held on Thursday, March 14, 2013 from 7:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at the Crowne Plaza Washington National Airport Hotel in Arlington, Virginia.
President Obama’s recent executive order on cybersecurity reinforces incident response and data security as top priorities for federal agencies today. At this invitation-only thought leadership forum, federal managers and executives will learn how government and industry leaders are handling incident response and achieving endpoint data visibility across the organization. The summit features presentations, panel discussions and technology demonstrations that provide a wide range of perspectives and best practices on forensics, e-discovery and cybersecurity in the U.S. government.
“A new year means a host of new and emerging cyber threats for government organizations,” said Victor Limongelli, president and chief executive officer of Guidance Software. “Last year’s Federal Summit was a tremendous success, and we’re enthusiastic about once again bringing together leaders from across the public sector to discuss the top concerns for 2013, as well as steps agencies can take to better manage the risk associated with the continued threats against data they manage.”
