This conference is one of the largest IT conferences for public agencies with attendance approaching 20,000 professionals. Leading educators and technology solution providers focused on security, privacy, and "green" IT solutions.

Keynote speakers from Google, Sun Microsystems and others talked about the future of computing and how public agency IT professionals can create a more productive and secure computing environment.

I presented for ID Experts on the topic of how an "Independent Risk Analysis" provides public agencies a more effective solution to mitigate risk when they have a data breach (i.e. when the best security measures fail, what next). Highlights from my presentation included:

1. The requirements that prompted congress to enact public law requiring independent risk analysis
2. When an agency would implement an independent risk analysis
3. What are the benefits of doing an independent risk analysis
4. How to initiate an independent risk analysis
5. How to be better prepared before an agency has a breach

ID Experts was one of two companies awarded a government contract to provide Independent Risk Analysis to public agencies in the U.S. This was a great opportunity for us to explain to public agencies how our solution helps them assess and certify the level of risk for an affected breach population and develop an effective risk mitigation plan.

Don't forget the risk included with RF door access cards for your I.T. personnel. Those cards can be activated, captured and cloned to be used by a fraudster or thief gaining access.

Please check out our website to see how this American made RF shield stops RF theft from your RF tagged cards, including debit and credit cards.

Identity theft is one of the increasingly rampant forms of fraud today. As an answer to this crisis, people should be wise enough to take preventive measures in order to avoid the possibility of being a victim. Same is true for business firms to protect their customers as well as their finances. Identity theft is a serious matter. It shouldn’t be taken for granted for it surely is a threat to everyone.
