PSCR 2021: ICAM Program Update: New Documents and Path Forward

Last year, NIST held its first Cybersecurity for Publics Safety and First Responders workshop, with a focus on identity, credential and access management (ICAM) challenges. This year NIST is following up with new guidance on critical topic areas such as identity federation, identity as a service (IDaaS) and biometric authentication technologies. This session will highlight these documents, when and where they apply and key takeaways and recommendations for the public safety community.
