"defend our information and communications infrastructure, strengthen public/private partnerships, invest in cutting edge research and development and to begin a national campaign to promote cyber-security awareness and digital literacy." President Barrack Obama
The TOP 100 experts in Cyber-Security from government, academia and industry were invited to attend and asked to accomplish this while becoming increasingly open and transparent. As national and international governments endeavor to manage citizen's identities while providing open, transparent and trusted services, the challenges of managing identities and access to information on such huge scales require careful planning, a strong policy focus, and attention to standards and interoperability.
In response to the President's call to secure the United States (and Canadian) cyber infrastructure, The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and the NITRD Program Senior Steering Group (SSG) for Cybersecurity R&D have developed the Leap-Ahead Initiative with the goal of developing a national cybersecurity leap-ahead R&D agenda. Whitenoise Laboratories (Canada) Inc. is pleased to have been asked by the White House OSTP to participate in this plenum. Whitenoise Dynamic Distributed Key Infrastructures and Dynamic Identity Verification and Authentication, or DIVA, provide continuous authentication, inherent intrusion detection, and automatic denial of network access to criminal behavior, said Andre' Brisson, co founder of Whitenoise Laboratories (Canada) Inc. Whitenoise technologies can easily be deployed in the five categories that have been identified by the Whitehouse OSTP to have game-changing potential to secure networks said Andre Brisson. The five new games will be explored at the invitationonly NCLY Summit scheduled for August 17-20, 2009, in Arlington, Virginia. Invited Summit participants will examine the forces of progress and inertia and recommend the most productive ways to induce the new games to materialize over the next decade. The Summit's outcomes will serve as input to the Administration's cybersecurity R&D agenda and as strategies for public-private actions to secure the Nation's digital future.
