We are very pleased to have Bob Mocny, director of DHS’s US-VISIT program speaking during the privacy track next Friday, July 31. Bob’s abstract, listed below, fills out an incredible privacy agenda and ensures that you will be handsomely rewarded if you stay for the full Catalyst conference. Privacy debates abound in many circles and you’ll hear several next week as speakers from Covisint, Future Identity, UCLA, Georgetown University, and Google share their issues, concerns, and opinions of privacy.

A Dual Mission: Identity Management and Privacy Protection in the Federal Government
Advances in identity management technology are providing significant security benefits to the U.S. government. At the same time, federal privacy statutes require the protection of personally identifiable information collected, stored and accessed by government officials. Learn how one federal program is successfully integrating the use of biometric technology and privacy protection requirements to enhance the nation’s security. Robert Mocny, director of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s USVISIT program—one of the world’s largest biometric identity management systems—will discuss how the program’s privacy strategies earn public trust and contribute to the overall success of the program. The practices employed by USVISIT are applicable in both public and private sectors and important for everyone involved in developing and implementing identity management systems.
