NSTIC Governance Workshop, March 15

Kaliya will be attending:

Thursday, March 15, 2012

Main Auditorium, U.S. Department of Commerce – Herbert C. Hoover Building, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC

Since the creation of the Internet, there have always been difficult questions surrounding privacy, security and trust. How do we know with whom we are interacting? How do we know they are trustworthy? How do we balance the desires for anonymity and personal privacy with the need to secure our information and transactions? In an effort to address these questions, President Obama signed the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC or “Strategy”).

The U.S. Department of Commerce and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will host a workshop with thought leaders from government and industry to discuss aspects of the Identity Ecosystem governance structure called for in the NSTIC.

This workshop will review and take questions on NIST’s February 2012 paper, Recommendations for Establishing an Identity Ecosystem Governance Structure, and on specific issues concerning the establishment of that governance structure.
