HBGary Launches First Cybersecurity Government Forum

Event is open to government agency security professionals only

Sacramento, CA, April 3, 2013, Today HBGary, a subsidiary of ManTech International Corporation, announced that it is sponsoring its first annual Cybersecurity Government Forum, a complimentary, half-day event focused on the cybersecurity challenges facing America's public sector to be held on Tuesday April 16th, 2013 at the Washington Marriott at the Metro Center in Washington D.C.

The event is open to government agency security professionals only. Registration is required and seating is limited.

Brian Varine, Director of DOE's Joint Cybersecurity Coordination Ctr., will be the event's guest speaker.

Jim Butterworth, HBGary CSO, and Joe Riggins, HBGary Senior Director of Incident Response will provide the latest information on the cyberattacks against our nation's critical infrastructure as well as an overview of the best incident response strategies and solutions such as HBGary's Active Defense&trade with Digital DNA to help government agencies counter these attacks.

Butterworth is a contributor to the newly published book, Handbook of SCADA/Control Systems Security published by CRC Press.

Initially funded by United States Air Force when it was first founded in 2003, HBGary focuses on providing the best security products and managed services to detect, respond and counter stealth, persistent adversaries against American government and commercial organizations.

"The sheer number and diversity of sustained cyber-attacks is clear indication that our adversaries have enjoyed the fruits of their labor at our expense. What is alarming however, are the growing instances where the motive of these attacks shifted from malfeasance to destruction. We are more reliant than ever on an infrastructure that is reliable, safe, trustworthy and protected. Our way of life depends on it," said Jim Butterworth, CSO, HBGary.

Mark E. Shaw, ManTech International Corporation, Executive Director, Cyber Security Operations Branch, will discuss the need for an evolving Security Operations Center (SOC) to detect and counter today's adaptive cyberattackers. ManTech manages America's leading government agency SOCs.
