Commentary and Opinions

In our increasingly digital world, our nation’s information security is just as important as its physical security. With President Obama declaring that cyber threats are “one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation,” all areas of government are under increasing pressure to develop a proactive and comprehensive IT defense strategy.
According to former 9/11 Commission counsel and CEO of the Secure Identity and Biometrics Association (SIBA) Janice Kephart, there is no further reason for Congress to delay implementing biometric exit legislation at airports and seaports.“The science is there, and proof is in the 16 nations that have fully implemented best-in-class biometrics that speed travel and virtually eliminate fraud, most of them in the past couple of years. Passage of a biometric exit bill -- and full deployment by DHS -- is both cost-effective and feasible now.
As you may be aware, the Department of Defense Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process, better known as DIACAP, regulates the implementation of risk management for information systems. What you may not know is that not all DIACAP certifications are created equal. Understanding this accreditation process, how the certification is achieved and what it signifies -- or working with an integration specialist who has this expertise -- will help your agency make the best possible decision in choosing an access control or other security solution.
