U.S. Department of Labor Cybersecurity Day
Top-in-their-field companies can meet personnel from the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) face-to-face at their Cybersecurity Day. Hosted by the Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO), this is the only expo hosted on-site at the DOL that allows outside vendors, so its a wise choice for any company wanting to demonstrate their products or services to this difficult-to-reach team. All DOL employees and contractors receive promotions from FBC. U.S. Department of Labor Mission: To foster, promote and develop the welfare of the wage earners, job seekers and retirees of the United States; improve working conditions; advance opportunities for profitable employment; and assure work-related benefits and rights. From the U.S. Department of Labor Strategic Plan: Secure and Enhance the IT Infrastructure To secure DOL’s sensitive information and improve data integrity, OCIO will focus on modernizing and standardizing DOL’s infrastructure. Following government-wide guidance, OCIO will increase DOL’s overall IT security posture and shift IT investments to more efficient and secure computing platforms and technologies. OCIO will create a centralized enterprise platform to improve service delivery by procuring commodity cloud services and establishing an enterprise cloud environment allowing DOL component agencies to consume cloud services in a centralized manner. Further, OCIO will implement enterprise-wide IT asset management solution to centrally manage all IT assets. In the course of security and enhancing the IT infrastructure, OCIO reduced the DOL’s IT footprint through the consolidation of traditional data centers, promoting the use of Green IT, and reduced the cost of data center hardware. To enhance safeguards to protect mission critical and sensitive information and reduce risk of unlawful breaches and unauthorized access, OCIO will defend the shared IT environment by rapidly completing technology assessments and using innovative technologies. OCIO will coordinate with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and OMB on implementing a Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program. OCIO will also continue migrating DOL applications to incorporate personal identification verification (PIV) usage, implement a single sign-on solution for logical access, and enable standard single sign-on capabilities across DOL.
