Implementation of the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) is in full stride. Our three complementary initiatives – partnering with the private-sector led Identity Ecosystem Steering Group (IDESG),
launching the Federal Cloud Credential Exchange (FCCX), and catalyzing the marketplace through NSTIC pilots– are hitting major milestones in 2014, contributing significantly to the emerging Identity Ecosystem envisioned in the strategy. We hope you will join us outside our nation’s capital at the NIST campus in Gaithersburg, Maryland June 17-19 to learn more, network with those engaged in NSTIC initiatives, and join in the important ongoing work of the IDESG. Virtual participation will also be available. Agenda highlights include:
White House Update. Michael Daniel
, White House Cybersecurity Coordinator and Special Assistant to the President, will provide perspectives on the NSTIC as a key Administration identity and privacy initiative, including the importance of NSTIC to the Administration’s efforts to improve cybersecurity.
Department of Commerce Update. Bruce Andrews
, the nominee for Deputy Secretary of Commerce (and currently its Chief of Staff) will discuss how NSTIC fits in with broader Commerce Department and Obama Administration initiatives around privacy, innovation, and economic growth.
Trusted Identities for Electronic Health Records. A senior representative of the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) will kick off a session focusing on joint ONC-NSTIC activities in leveraging trusted identities to secure the exchange of health information online. Panelists will discuss how the IDESG Health Working Group and HIMSS Identity Task Force will collaborate to inform ONC work.
NSTIC Pilot Update. 2013 pilot awardees ID.me, TSCP, GTRI, and Privo are currently deploying their innovative solutions in the marketplace, going into production in multiple industry segments including financial services and retail. Join this session to see how these innovative solutions are meeting the increasing need for more secure, privacy-enhancing identity solutions online.
IDESG plenary and committee meetings. The IDESG – now newly incorporated as an independent, 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation – will focus discussion on building an Identity Ecosystem Framework of standards, policies and business rules to support the implementation of the NSTIC. IDESG is driving toward this with support and resources from a broad and diverse array of stakeholders in the public and private sectors. The current focus is on building requirements and processes needed to establish trust mark and certification programs by the end of 2014. We hope you will join us for an exciting three days for the NSTIC and the IDESG. For more information and to register, visit http://www.idecosystem.org/9thPlenary
