In June 2012, over 200,000 passwords from the popular business networking site, LinkedIn, were compromised. While most LinkedIn accounts are less delicate—people often use their passwords multiple times for their own convenience thus allowing more sensitive accounts to be compromised. Cyber crimes like this create the need for a standardized identity and access management platform.
Last year, the Obama administration created the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC), an “identity ecosystem” providing government employee smart cards to control access to specified government buildings and websites. The implementation of NSTIC-style capabilities is currently in the planning stages by the Identity Ecosystem Steering Group, who recently met to begin delving out standards for privacy, usability, security and other key components needed by a national identification and access system.
Join AFCEA Bethesda on October 10, 2012 at the Bethesda North Marriott and Conference Center as a panel of agency leaders share their insight on the implementation and challenges faced by regulating identity and access management.
Panelists will discuss:
  • The role and implementation of a national identification and authentication system
  • How agencies will adapt to private sector systems with the support of the NSTIC
  • Examples of varying assurance levels associated with authentication systems
  • How agency priorities and budgets will need to shift to allow employee smart cards to regulate online access
  • How total government support of NSTIC-style capabilities would rely on the IRS, SSA, VA and CMS
