Information assurance

It’s a growing challenge. Government agencies around the world have to protect their people, assets and information. And every day, there’s more data. More complicated infrastructure. New threats. But agencies also have a lot of work to do. Services to provide. And they need access. The right people retrieving the right information. Getting into buildings and offices. Enabling government to serve the people. Conserving Energy. Achieving Efficiencies UniSpec Information Assurance solutions offer enterprise-wide security consulting services helps agencies establish digital identities, verify individuals as authorized and control what they can use and what they can do. It converges processes and technologies to authenticate identities and authorize access – effectively and efficiently. The Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12) sets policy for a common identification standard for federal employees and contractors, requiring agencies to be fully compliant by October 2008.

UniSpec can leverage its extensive identity management experience, including over 5 years of consistent consulting at the CxO levels of NASA, Commerce, and HUD, to help government organizations meet HSPD-12 and other government mandates.Identity management initiatives are building momentum throughout the world. The U.S. government, for example, recently issued the Homeland Security Presidential Directive-12 (HSPD-12) to set policy for a common, reliable and secure identification standard for federal employees and contractors. It requires all U.S. federal agencies to issue interoperable smart ID cards to their employees and contractors by October 2008.

Even more far-reaching, the UK government is considering a national identification scheme for its citizens. Airport security using biometrics is increasingly becoming a reality around the world. And radio frequency identification (RFID) tagged documents are being considered as ways to thwart terrorism and reduce illegal immigration in many civilized countries.
