NCCoE cybersecurity engineer, Bill Fisher, will discuss how ABAC enables organizations to take into account contextual factors when managing identity and access control, allowing for more granular analysis and therefore better access decisions.
Hosted by NCCoE partner, NextLabs, the webinar will explore why ABAC is becoming a priority for many organizations and how it can be implemented to reduce the risk of cyber breaches and internal misuse of sensitive information.
In coordination with the upcoming National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework Workshop 2016, the NCCoE invites interested members of the maritime and oil & natural gas industries to identify and prioritize hard cybersecurity challenges that can be addressed jointly by the NCCoE and industry.
NCCoE Security Engineer Bill Fisher will present "ABAC: Run-time Access Control for Federated Identities" during the NIST session from 8:30am-12:00pm at the Federal Labs Technology Demonstrations and Discussions in College Park, Md.

On Feb. 8, 2016, the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) celebrated its move to expanded new facilities with a ribbon cutting dedication and expert panel discussions featuring senior elected and government officials and the CEOs and presidents of several large companies.
NCCoE staff and partners demonstrated several of the center’s current projects that address challenges faced by many organizations, such as access control, mobile device security, online identity authentication, data integrity, situational awareness, and IT asset management. The 5,574 square-meter (60,000 square-foot) facility has 22 labs, including two large enough to hold vehicles for cybersecurity testing.
In light of increased and more sophisticated cyber threats, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) has developed an assessment tool to help companies understand, mitigate, and manage potential cyber threats.
Nate Lesser, deputy director of the NCCoE, will be speaking at this event.
