On June 20, the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE), in partnership with the FedID Planning Committee, will host a meet-up on "Educating the Public (and Policymakers) on Identity."
Speakers will discuss the importance of ensuring that the public (and policymakers) have a proper understanding of identity topics, share stories (and their impacts) from past issues, and offer what they feel are the biggest concerns for the future.
Attendance at the meet-up is open to anyone in the community wishing to learn and/or discuss ideas on demystifying technologies and programs. There will not be a charge to attend, but space is limited so register soon.
