From September until January, Monday evenings find living rooms across America filled with armchair quarterbacks. During pre-game shows and post-game analyses, experts and amateurs alike discuss the retreat and progress of their favorite teams. Even fantasy leagues abound to test players’ strategic and tactical prowess on the gridiron.
As we enter into the new fiscal year, three trends are going to be on the minds of every IT leader in Washington, D.C. And -- no big surprise -- they all revolve around Big Data. Those three crucial initiatives that will top the government enterprise priority list in 2015 are application rationalization, virtualization and cyber security.
With security awareness, threat assessment, and risk analysis extending into new areas like international traveler health screening, vigilance at the doors of elementary schools, and intensified subway passenger safety, it’s important for government security professionals everywhere to keep their knowledge and credentials continuously up-to-date.
The Javelin Strategy & Research’s 2014 Identity Fraud Study revealed that 13.1 million Americans became victims of identity theft last year. This startling statistic underscores the determination of malicious actors to access sensitive data. Despite the rise in exploits, vital aspects of security -- such as encryption -- has tended to slip through the cracks.
The possibility of governments collecting and analyzing personal data changed dramatically after the enactment of The Patriot Act in 2001.

Abstract:

Network Access Control and 802.1x - Advantages, Constraints and Capabilities

Written by distinguished security industry analyst Pete Lindstrom of Spire Security

The industry has been blurring the differences between 802.1x and NAC. Some believe that 802.1x is sufficient and similar enough to a full NAC solution to start down the path of implementation. What organizations often find is that the 802.1x story seems fairly simple and easy, but the deployment is much more difficult. This paper examines the fully 802.1x and NAC details such as:

    * What is 802.1x?
    * What important features are missing from 802.1x?
    * What alternatives exist to 802.1x and why?
    * What are the hidden costs associated with rolling out NAC?
    * How can commercial enterprises and government organizations benefit from NAC?
