Commentary and Opinions

Every day citizens put their faith and trust in the decisions that government programs make about identities (security clearances, border crossings, benefits and credentials). However, these decisions may not be as trustworthy as you think, because they are often not based upon current and validated information. This lack of information awareness has been accentuated by the onset of Big Data (the dramatic increase in data volumes, sources, types and velocity), which increases the risk of an undetected change in a person’s identity profile.
An important deadline is fast approaching for federal, state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies. Starting September 30, 2014, the FBI will require advanced authentication for anyone accessing its criminal justice information (CJIS) system to keep highly sensitive law enforcement data from falling into the wrong hands. 
It is possible to forecast the types of warfare that one’s terrorist adversary is likely to conduct, whether as an organized group or as “lone wolf” operatives. Such a forecasting capability is especially crucial when complete information about one’s terrorist adversary is lacking. This is important because several recent high visibility terrorist attacks could have been pre-empted and thwarted if the intelligence and law enforcement agencies that were tracking these groups and operatives had possessed such a forecasting capability.
By Todd Musselman and Al Kinney The value of a robust identity management system has long been recognized; however, the actual development and implementation of an effective identity management system have proven to be more difficult tasks. This challenge has grown more complex as various solutions have emerged and matured, and has become more urgent as threats continue to grow in sophistication.
The time has come to re-think embassy security. The Department of State recently called for a “more serious and sustained commitment from Congress” to address security deficiencies at high-risk posts around the world, in the wake of last year's attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, which resulted in the death of four people, including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens.
