Build Your Cyber Resiliency at Fal.Con for Public Sector 2021

July 12, 2021

Public Sector

The global pandemic has accelerated the need for security transformation, and public sector agencies have found themselves targeted by attackers more than ever. In response, the recent U.S. Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity calls on agencies to move to the cloud with greater urgency while accelerating Zero Trust security. Embracing work-from-anywhere flexibility while trusting no one is a tricky balance to strike, but the need for agencies to do so by modernizing their cybersecurity is non-negotiable.

That’s why being part of CrowdStrike’s Fal.Con for Public Sector 2021 (July 21-22) is essential. Now in its third year, our annual public sector event aims to help public sector organizations update their security program and strengthen their defenses against today’s attackers — and this year’s theme, “Cyber Resiliency: Accelerating Innovation and Transformation,” couldn’t be more timely. When you join us, you’ll:

  • Hear from leaders and other decision makers from across the public sector, education, healthcare and industry
  • Learn how to protect and manage growing data volumes, accelerate Zero Trust strategies, harness the latest threat intelligence and strengthen supply chain security
  • Engage with public sector leaders as they share their proven secure cloud adoption approaches

The two-day virtual conference is free to attend. Join us as we learn from each other and chart a path forward, for a secure future takes a shared defense.
