On Feb. 8, 2016, the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) celebrated its move to expanded new facilities with a ribbon cutting dedication and expert panel discussions featuring senior elected and government officials and the CEOs and presidents of several large companies.
NCCoE staff and partners demonstrated several of the center’s current projects that address challenges faced by many organizations, such as access control, mobile device security, online identity authentication, data integrity, situational awareness, and IT asset management. The 5,574 square-meter (60,000 square-foot) facility has 22 labs, including two large enough to hold vehicles for cybersecurity testing.
In light of increased and more sophisticated cyber threats, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) has developed an assessment tool to help companies understand, mitigate, and manage potential cyber threats.
Nate Lesser, deputy director of the NCCoE, will be speaking at this event.
Splunk has been working with the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on an IT asset management system for the financial sector that uses commercially-available products.
The reference architecture, in which Splunk serves as the Operational Intelligence platform, can help financial institutions reduce their risk by enhancing the visibility of assets, identifying vulnerable assets and enabling faster response to security threats.
