SESSION ONE:  'Digital Government'

The White House has revealed a comprehensive Government-wide strategy and roadmap to build the ‘21st century Digital Government that will deliver better digital services to the American people.’ The strategy outlines initiatives and principles that will guide federal agencies as they deliver citizen-centric, digital information and services across a variety of platforms, devices and delivery mechanisms (e.g. websites, mobile applications, and social media). The mission is to build openness, yet paradoxically, security and privacy into the infrastructure of all government IT assets. The envisioned collaboration between agencies will facilitate information sharing, leverage economies of scale; reduce data silos and duplication while delivering better services to citizens at a reduced cost. During this session our guest speakers will share their perspectives on this Government-wide strategy and how their organizations are facilitating the mission.

SESSION TWO: Risk Management & Legal Issues in Cloud Practice

Governments and industry alike constantly must adapt and respond to the risk management and compliance issues caused by an ever-growing body of regulations and practices, and the evolution of new risks.  In this session, the speakers will prepare participants to meet these challenges by discussing current trends, issues, and strategies to operate and adapt in that environment, including industry assurance practices, issues of location, and contractual attempts to cope with or harmonize multiple, conflicting various legal requirements.

PLENARY SESSION:  Latest in Cloud Standardization Initiatives

Get a preview of the newest and most relevant Cloud standardization projects. ICS will feature briefings on new and soon-to-be announced initiatives at OASIS.  CAMP (Cloud Application Management for Platforms) will standardize PaaS API, enabling the interoperability needed to deploy applications across cloud platforms from multiple vendors.  CloudAuthZ will generate profiles for cloud authorization and entitlements, allowing authorization policies to be enforced as close to the consumer as possible.  This session will also include updates on TOSCA, which enhances the portability of cloud applications, IDCloud, which defines profiles of standards for identity deployment, provisioning and management, and Trust Elevation, which works to define a set of standardized protocols that service providers may use to elevate the trust in an electronic identity credential presented to them for authentication.

PLENARY SESSION:  Trust in the Cloud: NSTIC and the Identity Ecosystem

The National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) is a White House initiative calling for the private sector to collaborate on the creation of an “Identity Ecosystem” where individuals can choose from multiple identity providers and digital credentials for more convenient, secure, and privacy-enhancing transactions anywhere online.  NSTIC implementation has now shifted into high gear, with the launch of the privately-led Identity Ecosystem Steering Group in August, as well as the award of more than $9 million in pilots.  Jim Sheire, Senior Advisor in the NSTIC National Program Office, will lay out the case for tackling cloud identity via a public-private partnership and detail the ways in which you and your organizations can and should participate in the coming months, including how to leverage the funded pilot projects that offer innovation and best practices in the Identity Ecosystem.
