Presenting at the 31st Annual FISSEA NIST Conference

Last week I gave a 30 minute presentation at the 31st Annual FISSEA Conference at NIST in Gaithersburg, MD.

FISSEA, or the Federal Information Systems Security Educators’ Association, is a division of NIST.

I was fortunate enough to speak at their conference last year as well.

My presentation was titled: “What You Need to Learn from the HHS Wall of Breaches.”

What You Need to Learn from the HHS Wall of Breaches

The HHS Wall of Shame is a rare set of public data on security breaches in the US. It’s an American Mirror of Hacking Activity, if you will.

If we inspect the HIPAA breaches that occurred during 2017, we can find patterns and trends around data loss of highly sensitive information.

The thesis of my presentation was that I believe these trends true across all business and government sectors in the United States.

Below is a copy of the deck I presented.

Always a good idea to inject some humor in the beginning

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) was founded in 1901 and is now part of the U.S. Department of Commerce. NIST is one of the nation’s oldest physical science laboratories.

From the smart electric power grid and electronic health records to atomic clocks, advanced nanomaterials, and computer chips, innumerable products and services rely in some way on standards provided by NIST.

In fact, HIPAA data security guidelines follow NIST standards.

Today, NIST measurements support the smallest of technologies to the largest and most complex of human-made creations—from nanoscale devices so tiny that tens of thousands can fit on the end of a single human hair up to earthquake-resistant skyscrapers and global communication networks.
