On Feb. 8, 2016, the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) celebrated its move to expanded new facilities with a building 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.
