COVID-19 Federal Spending: Industry Responses & Implications

Presented by NVTC's Digital Transformation Committee
Join us for a discussion with Avascent on the Federal Government’s response to COVID-19 and its implications for government contractors. The Federal Government has provided over $2 trillion in funding in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This money has been directed to a range of purposes, most critically for immediate health care requirements, income support, and economic stabilization. Federal agencies are also rewriting rules and policies to keep their suppliers afloat and their missions on track.
Doug Berenson, Managing Director at Avascent 
Rachel Jenkins, Principal at Avascent

Live Fire Cyber War in Finance: Defending the Bulwark
Presented by NVTC’s Cybersecurity and Privacy Committee and Morgan Stanley

Rachel Wilson, Morgan Stanley's Managing Director Head of Cybersecurity for Wealth Management and Investment Management Technology, will be leading an interactive discussion on how the risks and threats have changed and increased for Morgan Stanley and broadly for U.S. companies in general. 
Her conversation will incorporate the volume increase in attack traffic for our wealth management clients, and our institutional small and mid-size company relationships across the nation. She’ll share a renewed focus on automation and extending the perimeter of defense as a means of handling the 200% increase in number of attacks coming into financial institutions. Wilson will provide a concrete call to action on the solution needed for the expanded landscape of protecting the work-from-home environment, and the steps that Morgan Stanley has taken.
