#567 Federal Tech Talk
with John Gilroy
Topic: Federal IT insights from Dell EMC
Today’s guest is Cameron Chehreh, COO, CTO, VP Dell EMC Federal. We will take a look at the impact of IoT and federal security.
Artificial Intelligence can be applied in many situations. The question is – can it be applied to federal IT?
This is a discussion of how networks can be improved to take advantage of new technology that is deluging federal information technology professionals with data. Cameron addresses issues like complex networks, legacy installations, budget concerns, as well as sharing cyber intelligence.
Some estimate that by 2020 there will be 4 devices for each human being. It only makes sense that the federal government will be inundated as well. There are concerns as to just finding out it any IoT devices are on a federal network.
During the discussion a recent DHS study was mentioned that stated that most federal agencies have 44% more devices on their network than they realized. One difficult question that Cameron handled was, Does IoT cause more problems than it solves?
The interview then moved on to the role of flash storage in the federal world.
