FAIRFAX, Va., Jan. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Salient CRGT, Inc., a leading provider of full lifecycle information technology and training services with expert depth in Agile software development, data analytics, mobility, cyber security, and infrastructure to the federal civilian, defense, homeland, and intelligence agencies, today announced that Chief Cyber Strategist Chuck McGann will be participating in a webcast sponsored by Splunk Inc., provider of the leading software platform for real-time Operational Intelligence. The webcast, "Best Practices for Scoping Infections and Disrupting Breaches," will be held Wednesday, January 27, 2:00 PM EST.

Agencies face a constantly changing array of challenges: asymmetrical threats, new socio-economics threats, cyber warfare on government infrastructure, and more. The speed of innovation has to be leveraged to address the threats and the challenges that agencies face. Targeted attacks are on the rise, and the landscape changes on a daily basis. To successfully prevent system infections from becoming serious data breaches, organizations need to continuously collect and analyze diverse sets of data. Splunk solutions enable consolidation of large volumes of disparate data, leading to actionable information for organizations to gain insights.

Chuck McGann, Chief Cyber Strategist for Salient CRGT's Cyber Security Innovation Center and former CISO of the United States Postal Service, will discuss the benefits of adopting a continuous breach response posture that can help agencies understand the full scope of all infections. David Page, Sales Engineer for Splunk, will share his expertise on how Splunk solutions can help turn machine data into valuable insights to create real-time understanding of what happens across IT systems and technology infrastructures to make informed decisions.

"There is no question that cyber security concerns are growing at an increasing speed," states Chuck McGann. "Overworked cyber security teams cannot keep up with the volume of data and must depend on solutions like Splunk software and cloud services to automate and prioritize the machine data for effective incident identification and management. It's imperative that agencies adopt the continuous monitoring and continuous improvement mindset to increase their security posture and 'get out in front' of potential breaches and threats and prevent costly functionality impact."
