GovConWire will host “How to Increase Cybersecurity and Return on Investment of Existing PIV Infrastructure for Cross-Agency Encryption” Webinar on Tuesday, June 30th, free of cost.
The event will feature speakers from across the technology industry that will discuss the impacts and implications of wide scale adoption of PIV encryption between federal agencies.
The webinar will also explore the challenges both the public and private sector will face when adhering to OMB directive M-19-17. After the event, attendees will gain a deeper understanding of how federal agencies can increase the return on investment and cybersecurity by using their existing PIV and PKI encryption infrastructure by using it the way it was intended.

Edwards now leads the Intercede Labs team, developing new product solutions to meet emerging challenges in the silicon-to-service ecosystem.
Speaker: Kyle Neuman, Managing Director, SAFE Identity
Kyle Neuman, managing director of SAFE Identity, developed a security solution development that has driven real ROI for the health community. His leadership has assisted technical specialists at SAFE Identity collaborate to improve security through flawless execution and a practical approach.
Recently, SAFE Identity partnered with the Health Information Sharing and Analysis Center (H-ISAC) on June 1st to enable H-ISAC members to join the SAFE Policy Management Authority (PMA), the governing body of the SAFE Identity Trust Framework.
“Existing members can continue to utilize the ecosystem for the use cases and principles on which SAFE-BioPharma was founded while also taking advantage of the new capabilities SAFE is bringing to the table,” Neuman stated in regards to the framework.
The framework will enable members to vote on identity policies and join working groups aimed at helping healthcare organizations implement strong identity solutions as well as address identity challenges faced across healthcare.
“As we examine the future, we look forward to advising H-ISAC on the principles necessary to leverage a federated infrastructure and start tackling the most pressing identity challenges in healthcare including TEFCA and health information exchange, identification of medical devices, blockchain technology, and achieving a true portable patient ID that can be used across healthcare,” Neuman added.
Speaker: Jeff Nigriny, President and Founder of Certipath
Jeff Nigriny, president and founder of Certipath has committed his career to helping government and commercial customers reduce the cost and increase the reliability and scalability of identity assurance associated with even the most massive projects.
His efforts focus on overcoming the core challenges of identity and access management. To do so, Nigriny has invented commonly used identity technology, helped to write Federal identity policy and authored Virginia’s digital identity law.
Last year, CertiPath announced that the company created a blockchain gateway on behalf of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T). While blockchain is often associated with cryptocurrency applications, CertiPath has integrated the technology in transaction logs that span multiple enterprises that require non-repudiation.
Within the distributed ledgers segment, CertiPath’s technology will ensure usage at scale will be possible across a range of stakeholders. DHS Custom and Border Protection (CBP) is an example of an organization that was in need of a point of aggregation.
“We saw that organizations… were up against immense challenges when foodborne illness outbreaks occurred. CBP participating in blockchains will be a quantum leap forward in their ability to instantly access data. However, CBP cannot prescribe to commercial organizations what specific ledgers they must use,” said Nigriny. “CBP, in this way, must be able to participate in as many blockchains as are represented by all those they serve and normalize the data they receive.”
