NCCoE Computer Scientist Gavin O'Brien will participate in the "Information Security: It's Everyone's Problem" session from 10:30m-11:30am at the AEHIX 16 Fall Forum in Phoenix, Arizona. This session explores the current threat landscape and identifies best practices for protecting the organization and information vital to patient care and business operations. This fall forum aims to bring together thought leaders from across health IA, IT, and IS specialties to network and share ideas on how IT can help bend the cost curve.
NCCoE senior engineers Jim Banoczi and Harry Perper will present a session titled "Practical Solutions for Managing Access and Assets" at the 2016 FS-ISAC Fall Summit in Nashville, TN. The session provides an overview of the NCCoE and describe two projects that were identified as significant challenges by FS-ISAC members. The first project outlines a practical solution for identifying and managing IT assets within an organization. The second project, Access Rights Management, addresses how to integrate diverse identity and access management platforms to better control access rights. These projects were initiated through discussions with FS-ISAC members and have broad applicability across the financial sector.

The workshop will discuss top challenges facing the energy industry today, and review profiles and worked example solutions in IdAM, Situational Awareness, and Industrial Control Systems. Topics will also include the NIST Cybersecurity Portfolio and Cybersecurity Framework (CSF).
The NCCoE is currently working on a project which aims to explore and implement commercial off-the-shelf solutions that demonstrate derived PIV credential issuance, lifecycle management, and usage. On October 12, 2016, the NCCOE will host a workshop to present the current direction of the Derived PIV Credentials project (including a high level architecture and current technology partners) and to understand stakeholders’ implementations, challenges, and desired usage.
NCCoE Computer Scientist Gavin O'Brien will join the "Cybersecurity: Out Think Healthcare Threat" panel discussion at the AFCEA Health IT Day at the Bethesda North Marriott Conference Center on Wednesday, October 12 from 10:30am-11:30am. This moderated panel of federal CISOs and privacy experts will share their perspective on how cognitive solutions may impact predictive threats and other cybersecurity topics of interest.
The NCCoE will host TTI/Vanguard members for sector roundtables and demos as part of their 2016 Cybersecurity Conference from noon to 4 p.m. on September 28. TTI/Vanguard’s visit will include demos of example solutions in the areas of health IT, energy, financial services, and IoT, as well as roundtables led by NCCoE experts on health IT, energy, financial services, retail/consumer, and transportation sectors to provide a solutions-oriented deep dive into the issues facing that sector.
The Global Identity Summit provides an immersive environment where identity professionals from the federal government, private sector and academia can dedicate three days to strategic planning, information sharing, needs analysis, collaboration and relationship building. The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence will join NIST and the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace as an exhibitor.
NCCoe Director of Operations Tim McBride will speak on the panel "Predictive Security: The Best Offense Is A Good Defense" at the 2016 Cybersecurity Brainstorm on September 13 from 9:15am-10:00am at the Newseum in Washington, DC. The panel will address several questions, including: Is government moving effectively towards predictive security approaches that can improve both compliance and defense? What role does the evolving CDM program play when it comes to using Information Security Continuous Monitoring (ISCM) data for effective security? Where do security intelligence and cognitive capabilities play into this challenge? How can clarification of defensive and offensive cybersecurity approaches help? Is there a silver bullet to help agencies meet both requirements?
