 Ron Ross We are also excited to announce that our keynote speaker is the renown Ron S. Ross, Ph.D, a Fellow at the National Institute of Standards and Technology.  Ron will talk about "Pushing Computers to the Edge, Next Generation Security and Privacy Controls for Systems and IoT Devices".

Topic Abstract
As we push computers to “the edge” building an increasingly complex world of interconnected systems and devices, security and privacy continue to dominate the national conversation. The Defense Science Board in its 2017 report, Task Force on Cyber Defense, provides a sobering assessment of the current vulnerabilities in the U.S. critical infrastructure and the systems that support the mission essential operations and assets in the public and private sectors.

“…The Task Force notes that the cyber threat to U.S. critical infrastructure is outpacing efforts to reduce pervasive vulnerabilities, so that for the next decade at least the United States must lean significantly on deterrence to address the cyber threat posed by the most capable U.S. adversaries. It is clear that a more proactive and systematic approach to U.S. cyber deterrence is urgently needed…”

There is an urgent need to further strengthen the underlying systems, component products, and services that we depend on in every sector of the critical infrastructure—ensuring those systems, components, and services are sufficiently trustworthy and provide the necessary resilience to support the economic and national security interests of the United States. NIST Special Publication 800-53 (Revision 5) responds to the call by the Defense Science Board by embarking on a proactive and systemic approach to develop and make available to a broad base of public and private sector organizations, a comprehensive set of safeguarding measures for all types of systems, including general purpose computing systems, cyber-physical systems, cloud and mobile systems, industrial/process control systems, and IoT devices. Those safeguarding measures include security and privacy controls to protect the critical and essential operations and assets of organizations and the personal privacy of individuals. The ultimate objective is to make the systems we depend on more penetration resistant to attacks; limit the damage from attacks when they occur; and make the systems resilient and survivable.
