Senior Executive Advisor for Identity Management
National Institute of Standards and Technology
The Obama Administration released the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) on April 15, 2011 during a meeting with about 250 business, government, and other leaders at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C. NSTIC seeks to better protect consumers from fraud and identity theft, enhance individuals' privacy, and foster economic growth by enabling industry both to move more services online and to create innovative new services.
The event included remarks by U.S. Sec. of Commerce Gary Locke, other Administration officials, and U.S. Senator Barbara Mikulski, as well as a panel discussion with private sector, consumer advocate, and government ID management experts. In addition, vendors from a number of different companies, as well as some government agencies, provided demonstrations and answered questions at exhibit booths about identity management products and pilot efforts.
