Facility Management Considerations in Cybersecurity—Tips for Achieving Compliance
Wednesday, June 5, 2019 1:15 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Organizational information assets are threatened by an array of sources, both internal and external. Many attack methods and mitigation measures involve facility operations. Facility managers must consider everything from physical security to contractor network access. They are also often responsible for ensuring appropriate controls and documentation are in place. The Department of Defense and NIST have teamed up to create control requirements for companies and DoD contractors whose networks must comply with the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) or adhere to the Risk Management Framework (RMF). Based on completion of more than 85 DFARS compliance processes and nearly a dozen RMF accreditations, we have found that organizations often overlook threats and vulnerabilities that exist at the physical level and facilities often lack the controls and documentation required for compliance. Cybersecurity risks faced by companies require new approaches to security. DFARS and RMF processes and controls present one way for companies to assess their security posture and “bake in” information security to their operations. Examples of cybersecurity regulations and federal guidance related to facility management include having proper documentation of when people enter and leave physical facilities, video surveillance, restricting mobile or storage devices, role-based training, access authorizations through access control devices (e.g. keys, badges, cipher locks), environmental controls (e.g. temperature in server rooms), storage site protection, and having a plan to continually monitor flow of resources and sensitive information, both hard copies and digital formats. Subcontractors and vendors are often subject to regulations and security-related responsibilities as well. We discuss strategies in which Facility Managers and Security Officers can collaborate with IT to create an organization-wide “culture of security” as well as confront challenges posed by cyber criminals and governance regulation and control. Additionally, we introduce the basic components of DFARS and RMF, and practical first steps to achieve compliance and accreditation.

Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Strategic Initiatives
Wednesday, June 5, 2019 2:15 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
All technologists should consider the use of blockchain as a new and exciting arrow in their quiver, as it relates to the provenance and tracking of a digitized record, and automation of transactions.
The implications of a more efficient and more secure method of storage and way of transacting lends itself to the following use cases, which will be discussed in detail and through real-world examples: increased efficiency IT and financial auditing; blockchain’s use in credentialing and validation of personally identifiable information; blockchain’s role in voting and elections; and the use of smart contracts to make and validate transactions.
This session will also discuss how to reduce implementation risk to the organization, as a poorly planned implementation can create turmoil. This includes determining if blockchain encryption is a good fit for the assets, determining if the organization is ready for the change, and the role of training, UX and security.
