The Federal Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) Summit includes a set of MITRE Advanced Technology Academic Research Center (ATARC) led Collaboration Sessions that afforded industry, government, academic, and Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) representatives an opportunity to collaborate, and discuss prominent challenge areas facing the CISO community. In some cases, potential solutions for key challenge areas were identified by session participants. The discussions were government focused with the objective of refining gaps, and identifying features of potential solutions or frameworks.

Participants representing government, industry, and academia addressed five challenge areas in federal security policy:

  1. Executive Orders
  2. Measuring Cybersecurity Success
  3. Closing the Skills Gap
  4. Managing in the Threat Environment
  5. Preparing for Technology Evolution
