Speaking at the 2009 Federal Identity Management & Cybersecurity Conference
The (first annual) 2009 Federal Identity Management & Cyber Security Conference is being held in Washington on December 15-16th. I’m speaking on day two on a panel moderated by Earl Crane of DHS on “Innovation and security in Cloud Computing.”
The Information Security and Identity Management Committee (ISIMC) of the Federal CIO Council is taking steps to deliver on the President’s pledge for cybersecurity. ISIMC will discuss strategies and tactics for securing and defending federal IT systems and networks for trusted and reliable global communication.
The objectives of this conference are awareness, education, and alignment toward a common vision for cyber defense within the federal community. This conference will focus on protecting the nation against cyber aggression, while preserving and protecting the personal privacy and civil liberties that are the core of american values.
Hosted by the Information Security and Identity management committee (ISIMC), which supports the federal CIO Council in enabling chief Information officers (CIOs) and chief Information Security officers (CISOs) to collaborate on: (1) identifying high priority cybersecurity and identity management initiatives; and (2) developing recommendations for policies, procedures, and standards to address those initiatives that enhance the security posture and protection afforded to federal government networks, information, and information systems.
