NIST’s NCCoE Showcases Projects at RSA, HIMSS Conferences

The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE), a part of the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST), will demonstrate its current projects in San Francisco Feb. 13-17 at the RSA Conference and Orlando Feb 19-23 at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society Annual Conference & Exhibition (HIMSS17).

Individuals and organizations interested in learning more about the NCCoE’s work and how they can participate are encouraged to visit the booth and attend the presentations and demonstrations listed below.

RSA Conference: February 13-17, 2017

NIST will exhibit its cybersecurity programs, including the NCCoE, in booth #S2815. NCCoE staff will be available at the booth throughout the exhibition to answer questions. The booth will also host NCCoE project demonstrations:

The NCCoE will also present project demonstrations at project collaborator booths:

HIMSS17: February 19-23, 2017

NCCoE Computer Scientist Gavin O’Brien will participate in two presentations, sharing NCCoE example solutions in the Health IT sector including Securing Electronic Health Records on Mobile Devices and Wireless Medical Infusion Pumps.

On Wednesday, Feb. 22 at 10am in Ballroom 4F, O’Brien will present “Securing Wireless Medical Infusion Pumps - A Use Case,” detailing how healthcare providers can use the NCCoE example solution to secure medical devices on an enterprise network, with a specific focus on wireless infusion pumps. In the presentation, he will evaluate risks associated with threats and vulnerabilities related to medical devices and the wide array of technologies that can be employed to mitigate these risks.

Prior to the conference, HIMSS17 attendees voted on the top ten topics submitted to the YourTurn discussion series. The NCCoE’s topic Cybersecurity Challenges in Health Care was one of the topics selected and will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 22 at 1pm in room W300. O’Brien will lead attendees in a discussion on best practices, challenge prioritization, and potential solutions to help guide the NCCoE’s selection for new Health IT project.

The NCCoE will exhibit in the Federal Health IT Solutions Pavilion in Hall A, booth #230 (sponsored by The MITRE Corporation). NCCoE staff will be available at the booth throughout the exhibition to answer questions. Check out the scheduled presentation on Healthcare CTI Information Sharing at the booth on Tuesday, Feb. 21, at 11:30am. Information sharing programs have become critical in healthcare as a means to combat rapidly evolving threats. The NCCoE will introduce Cyber Threat Information and NIST SP 800-150, demonstrating how successful programs are about more than implementing data feeds.
