Visibility,” to be held on Thursday, March 14, 2013 from 7:00 a.m. until 2:00

“A new year means a host of new and emerging cyber threats for government
organizations,” said Victor Limongelli, president and chief executive officer
of Guidance Software. “Last year’s Federal Summit was a tremendous success,
and we’re enthusiastic about once again bringing together leaders from across
the public sector to discuss the top concerns for 2013, as well as steps
agencies can take to better manage the risk associated with the continued
