RSA Conference 2019

Monday, March 4, 2019 to Friday, March 8, 2019


Your Data’s Integrity: Protect & Respond to Ransomware and Critical Events
Wednesday, March 6 at 2:50 p.m.
At last year’s RSA Conference we shared ways to quickly recover from an event that alters or destroys data. This year, the NCCoE’s Anne Townsend is back with an entire suite that organizations can deploy to effectively identify, protect, detect, and respond to data integrity events. These solutions are follow-on projects to the NCCoE’s highly publicized NIST Special Publication (SP) 1800-11, Recovering from Ransomware and Other Destructive Events.

FS-ISAC Fall Summit

Sunday, November 11, 2018 to Wednesday, November 14, 2018

NCCoE Director Donna Dodson will present a session titled "Strategies for Co-existing with TLS 1.3" at the 2018 FS-ISAC Fall Summit in Chicago, IL on Tuesday, November 13 from 4:00 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) is currently rolling out version 1.3 of the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol designed to ensure forward secrecy for sessions to prevent pervasive monitoring and establish secure internet connections faster by streamlining the handshake process to maximize performance. This session will describe a proposed public-private collaboration to develop pragmatic solutions for security, compliance and fraud monitoring that do not rely on visibility into TLS connections.

NCCoE Senior Engineer Harry Perper will present a session titled "Privileged Account Management Techniques" on Wednesday, November 14 from 11:15 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The session provides an overview of the NCCoE and describe the recent Privileged Account Management project that resulted in the publication of NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guide SP 1800-18.
