Electrosoft’s Cecil Dildine Joined Risk Management Framework and Zero Trust Experts for ATARC Webinar May 6, 2024

Electrosoft Program Director Cecil Dildine joined other federal cybersecurity leader panelists for a one-hour webinar, “Securing Success: RMF and Zero Trust Unleashed.” ATARC, in partnership with Electrosoft, facilitated the panel discussion which touched on the current state of Zero Trust modernization initiatives in the federal government, challenges and benefits of a Zero Trust approach to cybersecurity, and how an agency’s risk management framework relates to Zero Trust.

“Zero Trust is fundamentally transforming how federal agencies are implementing next-generation tools, systems, and processes to significantly advance the security of their people, data, and operations,” said Dr. Sarbari Gupta, Electrosoft’s CEO. “In the insightful webinar, Cecil and the other esteemed panelists shared impressive updates on the progress, challenges, and benefits of defense and civilian programs’ transformations so far.”


Our digital world is more expansive than ever before, giving access to unprecedented capabilities for our business, government, and personal use. As digital transformation accelerates, the risks associated with cyberattacks grow and affect every aspect of modern business, from customer service to government operations to smart infrastructure. Cyber or business resilience must be a critical component of all security strategies — yet it is often regulated as a security or an IT problem and not an operational one.

The reality is that cybercriminals are more sophisticated than ever before, meaning that the ability to defend, respond, and recover from a cyber event requires support across the organization. Neither IT nor security can cope alone. This panel will discuss the importance of resilience in today’s digital world and examine how to build a foundation for effective risk management throughout organizations.
