CTO Sessions On Demand: Best Practices for Data in Transit Encryption


High speed networks are the critical foundation that supports many of an agency’s most vital communications and operations. However, this foundation is at risk of surveillance and attack by increasingly sophisticated cyber criminals and well-funded nation states. These network connections, if unprotected, are proving to be highly vulnerable, leaving sensitive assets exposed. Threats such as shared infrastructure exposure, man-in-the-middle attacks, and metadata exposure leave agencies susceptible to a range of devastating repercussions.

Due to these risks, the White House Executive Order on Cybersecurity gives agencies until the beginning of November to implement data in transit encryption. So, what is the best way to protect network traffic? Encrypt everywhere—between data centers and headquarters to backup and disaster recovery sites, whether on premises or in the cloud.

In this webinar, attendees learned about the best practices for data in transit encryption. Attendees also learned how to efficiently and effectively protect their network traffic in order to safeguard it from threats.
