RSA’s Robert Carey: Cybersecurity, Mission Outcomes Should Be Prioritized in Agency IT Modernization

Robert Carey

Robert Carey, vice president and general manager of global public sector solutions at RSA, has said government agencies seeking to modernize their information technology infrastructure should prioritize mission outcomes and cybersecurity.

Carey wrote that IT teams should assess their tech investment priorities to ensure network security and resiliency.

“The organization as a whole must invest in cyber hygiene and make identity management and other cybersecurity tools as transparent as possible,” he added.

He discussed how cybersecurity metrics, automation and other technology platforms could help agencies build up resilient networks.

“Automation informed by artificial intelligence engines can help agencies modernize to operate in an increasingly complex world. AI, along with quantum computing and other evolving technologies, enhances the capabilities for both attackers and defenders,” Carey noted.

He also cited the importance of having a digital risk management strategy in helping agencies carry out their missions and the need for agencies to account for “tectonic plate” shifts in the technology space and the intersection between networks and business processes.
