Andrea Arbelaez, National Institute of Standards IT project manager, and Technology and Sue Wang, NCCoE Cybersecurity Engineer, will present the Picture Archiving and Communications (PACS) session at the CyberMaryland Conference on Wednesday, October 10th and 2:00 pm.
NIST engineer Mike Bartok will present alongside NCEP partners Intel, Hytrust, IBM, VMware, and RSA on the panel "A Public-Private Partnership to Deliver a Trusted Hybrid Cloud" on Tuesday, March 20 at IBM Think 2018. As enterprises increasingly adopt a hybrid cloud model, they want to maintain consistent security capabilities and control across their on-premises private cloud and third-party public cloud to meet security and compliance requirements. The NCCoE is collaborating with their industry partners Intel, Dell, IBM, VMware, HyTrust, and RSA to engineer and build a solution leveraging commercial off-the-shelf technology and IBM Cloud to deliver a Hybrid Trusted Cloud implementation that is compliance-ready across multiple industry regulations. The panelists will describe the security properties, architecture design decisions, technology stack, and implementation.
Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Branch Chief at the Cybersecurity Assurance Branch, Martin Stanley, and Lead System Engineer James J. Quinn will discuss and demonstrate the DHS and NCCoE generic Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) instance. The discussion will be followed by a panel of government and industry experts discussing the benefits of how a solution like CDM can benefit any enterprise. Join us in person or on the webcast.
Recent, high-profile hotel hacks have brought increasing attention to the hospitality sector and its cybersecurity challenges. While hospitality organizations have long supported the internal flow of information and data (e.g. allowing a hotel guest to charge dinner from the hotel restaurant to his/her room), technological improvements and customer demands have pushed hotels to offer increasing amenities, such as free Wi-Fi or mobile check-in. Through collaboration with the hospitality industry, the NCCoE is developing an example solution to help organizations strengthen the security of their property management system to better protect the business against network intrusion, data breach, fraud loss, and damage to reputation, while continuing to allow customers and guests to utilize and appreciate a hotel’s technological amenities. Join us in person or online for a lively discussion on the unique trends and challenges to improving cybersecurity in the hospitality sector.
The NCCoE Speaker Series Cybersecurity 101 for Small Business: The Questions You Need to Ask to Protect You and Your Customers will be held on April 5 from 1-4pm in person at the NCCoE and via webcast.
Insider threats are growing at an alarming rate, with medium-to-large company losses averaging over $4 million every year. Smaller businesses are at risk too, and it is estimated that in 2014, over half of all cyber attacks targeted companies with less than 1,000 employees. The majority of these breaches are caused accidentally by internal employees or contractors.

In this NCCoE Speaker Series, Captain Kathryn (Kay) Hire, USN, will talk about her experiences as a pioneer in the Navy, as a NASA astronaut, as one of the first women to graduate from the U.S. Naval Academy, and as the first woman in U.S. military history to be assigned to combat aircrew. She will share her thoughts on how STEM education, among other attributes, can open up possibilities and encourage people to enter into fields they hadn’t considered before. Ultimately, encouraging STEM skills and applying them in the real world can lead to further strengthening of the nation’s cybersecurity resilience.
