Federal CISO Chris DeRusha To Headline Google Cloud Government Security Summit

The past 16 months served up unprecedented cybersecurity challenges to government agencies. First, the cyber-attack landscape expanded exponentially with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and pivot to remote work. Then came a rapid succession of high-profile attacks – SolarWinds, Hafnium, the Colonial Pipeline, and JBS Foods, to name several – that threatened national security, critical infrastructure, and the delivery of essential services.

The Federal government is on high alert and taking action. President Biden’s Cybersecurity Executive Order is focused on transforming government and critical infrastructure cybersecurity. Accelerating the journey to Zero Trust Architecture is central to these efforts, as is the need for improved cyber analytics. 

Federal agencies have a big job ahead, and Google Cloud is ready to help you stay ahead of next-generation threats. We’re diving deep at our first Google Cloud Government Security Summit, scheduled for 9 a.m. ET on July 20. Join us for this digital event, packed with content designed to help you keep your government organization secure in the cloud, on-premises, or in hybrid environments.

We’re excited to announce that Chris DeRusha, Federal Chief Information Security Officer, will set the stage for the event with a special keynote outlining the path forward for Federal agencies. DeRusha has served in the Biden Administration since January after holding previous cybersecurity leadership roles in the Obama Administration, state government and the automotive industry.

Other event highlights include a keynote from Google Cloud CEO, Thomas Kurian, as well as a live Q&A with Mike Daniels, Google Cloud’s Vice President of Global Public Sector.
