Security Standards To Be Discussed At Management World Americas

TM Forum : 19 October, 2010  (New Product)
TM Forum brings cyber security under the spotlight at major US management exhibition
With growing concerns surrounding cyber security and attention building on cloud and policy-based management, interest in Defense at Management World Americas conference, November 9-11, 2010 in Orlando, FL. has soared to an all time high, attracting some of the biggest names in the industry. This comes as TM Forum reports a record-breaking 20% increase in overall registrations for its flagship U.S. event.

Spearheaded by a keynote address from Henry Sienkiewicz, CIO, DISA, defense-related activities at the 3 day conference include:

* a high-profile half day Defense Spotlight, with some of the biggest names in the industry, on Tuesday November 9, dedicated to Securing Network Operations and SATCOM and Spectrum Management

* a Cloud Summit boasting several key defense speakers including Jesse Jones, Technical Director, Office of CIO, DISA, on the "Security in the Cloud" panel, together with presentations from Boeing, Booz Allen Hamilton and Northrop Grumman

* a Federated Service Level Management (SLA) multi-vendor catalyst demonstration in Forumville, co-championed by NATO C3 Agency and the UK MOD Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL), leveraging Infonova and Layer 7 technologies to demonstrate the agile and rapid build out of the end-to-end ICT service chain and secured messaging across a multi-national coalition

* a range of other Defense relevant presentations on Policy and Security Management topics in the general conference summits on Operational Excellence and Customer Experience.

The US DoD's Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), the National Security Agency (NSA), MITRE and SkyBox Security are amongst those engaging in the high-profile half-day Defense Spotlight.

Here they will be debating critical issues surrounding securing network operations, the application of policy-based management, and the relevance of TM Forum's Frameworx standard - which were recently enhanced with Network Defense context. This advancement comes at a key time following the recent declaration from President Obama that US digital infrastructure is a national security asset which must be "secure, trustworthy and resilient."

These industry experts will present and discuss best practices, techniques, and strategies, and the role of TM Forum standards, all of which serve to benefit Government and Defense agencies and operators of public networks alike.

Speakers include;

• Meg Sebastian, Chief, DISN OSS, DISA
• Sriram Chakrapani, Chief, Integration Engineering Division, DISA
• Adam Vincent, CTO Public Sector, Layer 7 Technologies
• Edward Chow, Technology Manager, NASA JPL
• James Heath, Senior Analyst, Technology Research Institute
• Michelle Johnson Cobb, Vice President, Worldwide Marketing, Skybox Security
• Chris Poulin, Chief Security Officer, Q1 Labs
• Dan O'Donnell, VP of Business Development Americas, Network Critical
• Bob Natale, Chief Engineer, Joint NetOps & Cyber Defense, MITRE Corporation
• Howard McDonald, Team Lead-DSA, Defense Spectrum Organization, DISA
• Alan Rosner, GEMSIS Chief Engineer, DISA
• Michael O'Hehir, US DOD Spectrum Data Administrator, DoD
• Dr. Jeffrey Boksiner, Senior Technical Lead, Spectrum Management Programs Antennas & Spectrum Analysis Division, Army CERDE

According to Christy Coffey, Head of TM Forum's Defense Initiative, TM Forum, "Management World Americas is fast becoming a highly Defense-relevant conference that tackles the tough issues facing the Defense industry at this time. As more emphasis is put on the introduction of standards around cyber security, TM Forum and its industry-leading Frameworx standards for Network Defense are now more relevant than ever before."
