Jeff Nigriny, president and founder of CertiPath, will serve as a speaker during the exclusive “How to Increase Cybersecurity and Return on Investment of Existing PIV Infrastructure for Cross-Agency Encryption” Webinar on Tuesday, June 30th, exclusively on GovConWire and free of cost.
Nigriny 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. In order 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 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.”
During the webinar, Nigriny will explore the barriers and shortfalls of wide scale adoption of Personal Identity Verification (PIV) encryption between federal agencies and the challenges they face when adhering to Office of Management and Budget (OMB) directive M-19-17.
Nigriny will be joined by Dr. Chris Edwards, chief technical officer of Intercede; Sam Andoni, founder and president of Zeva Inc.; Kyle Neuman, managing director of SAFE Identity and Mike Horkey, founder and CEO of Tru-Concepts LLC as the event’s moderator.
The speakers will dive into the importance of encryption, barriers to adoption and how new technologies are solving these challenges. Attendees will learn 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.
