October IT Security Automation Conference to Highlight Healthcare IT, Cloud Computing

24.09.2009
The Fifth Annual IT Security Automation Conference, co-hosted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), will focus on emerging technologies designed to support the security automation needs of multiple sectors. The conference will be held Oct. 26-29 at the Baltimore Convention Center.

This year’s expanded conference includes several new conference tracks on the use of security automation in support of healthcare IT/Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA); how security automation tools and technologies can ease the technical burdens of policy compliance; and how the rapidly evolving cloud computing sector can integrate security automation to achieve significant benefits. The first and last days are devoted to tutorials and workshops for novices and experts.

This conference with workshops and an expo presents projects and integration efforts that facilitate the automation and standardization of computer vulnerability management, security measurement and compliance checking. In the past, these common challenges have been complicated by multiple proprietary methodologies and technologies that make it difficult to collect, correlate, remediate and report on mission-critical systems and data. Security automation reduces the complexity and time necessary to manage these functions, creating a secure and trusted computing environment that frees up resources to focus on other areas of the IT infrastructure.

The conference is co-hosted by NIST, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA). The four agencies are actively involved in work to automate computer security.

The IT Security Automation Conference is geared toward public and private sector senior executives, security managers and staff, information technology professionals and developers of products and services. Additional conference tracks include:

Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) Implementation,
SCAP Technical Challenges,
Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA),
Department of Defense (DoD) Infrastructure Strategy, Vulnerability Identification and Remediation Architecture, and
Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS).
Tutorial and workshops on DoC, DoD and DHS technologies and initiatives will be offered, such as:
Federal Desktop Core Configuration (FDCC),
Emerging Standards and Specifications,
SCAP Validated Tools,
Content Validation, and
Case Studies.
Online registration is available at http://scap.nist.gov/events, and there is a $100 early registration discount available until Oct. 5. Reporters interested in attending should contact Evelyn Brown (301) 975-5661.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
