Cybersecurity has gained prominence on Capitol Hill since the launch of the Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative (CNCI) in January 2008. The current Administration has enhanced the CNCI, identifying cybersecurity as "one of the most serious ecnomic and national security challenges we face as a nation."
As part of the Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative, the Administration has issued OMB 11-11 that addresses cybersecurity for Federal agencies, and has developed the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC). The NSTIC, in which HID Global has been actively involved, focuses on finding ways to better protect consumers from fraud and identity theft while protecting privacy. NSTIC's goal is to foster economic growth by enabling a more trusted environment in cyberspace.
HID Global is uniquely positioned to provide solutions for our nation's cybersecurity objectives, and we are among a select number of leading organizations that will be demonstrating some of those solutions on the Hill this week at the Congressional Internet Caucus Advisory Committee's 15th Annual Kickoff Reception & Technology Exhibition. The event provides Members of Congress and their staff the opportunity to test drive and understand technologies that are changing our lives and influencing Internet and technology policy in Washington.
As the largest technology exhibition on Capitol Hill, the event will provide a showcase for HID Global's cybersecurity technologies and services for citizens, government employees and government contractors. Our solutions have the potential to answer some of the most compelling policy issues the nation faces in cyberspace today.
Other leading technology providers demonstrating their latest solutions at the event include: AT&T; Banyan Water; Comcast; Democracy Live; Federal Trade Commission; Fujitsu; Future of Privacy Forum; Google; HP; Internet Systems Consortium; Intuit; MarkMonitor; Microsoft; National Telecommunications and Information Administration; Neustar; Pandora Media; POPVOX; Progress Software; Research In Motion; Sony; Texas Instruments; The Open Technology Initiative; TRUSTe; Verizon; and the Young Adult Library Services Association.
The exhibition is also one of the largest policy networking events on Capitol Hill, bringing together Congressional staff, Administration officials, industry executives and public interest advocates. The exhibition attracts lawmakers and staff, reporters, and representatives from the government agencies and private sector organizations. It is open to the public and free to attend, and I would like to extend the invitation to security decision-makers interested in hands-on demonstrations of technologies that illustrate the public policy debates to be addressed in the second session of the 112th Congress.
We hope to see you there!
