Securing Federal Identity 2017 has opened the call for speakers and is seeking government agencies to share use cases and vendor-neutral, educational presentations that focus on federal government-led security policies and infrastructure changes for enhanced security for physical and network access or trusted identities.
Securing Federal Identity 2017, a Smart Card Alliance government event, will be held in Washington D.C. this June. The event provides comprehensive coverage of identity management and strong authentication in government programs, and brings together important developments, innovations and experts in federal identity credentialing and access security.
Topics that the program committee will consider include: Federal PIV credentials usage for two-factor authentication; Derived credentials for mobile identity systems and authentication; Mobile and cloud identity programs; Evolving NIST standards for cybersecurity frameworks and mobile services; Cyber threats and mitigation programs, and; Next generation CAC, PIV, PIV-I, or TWIC cards for multifactor authentication.
Speaking proposals will be accepted through March 1, 2017.
“For the past 15 years, the Smart Card Alliance government events have brought together the most influential thought leaders to address pressing issues impacting identity and authentication in government,” said Randy Vanderhoof, executive director of the Smart Card Alliance. “With the emerging technology and evolving standards in this space, we’re looking for experts to lead sessions on future efforts to manage identities and control access to protect sensitive information on online government networks across all federal agencies.”
