The Government Accountability Office (GAO) recently confirmed in a study that implementing compliant, effective physical access controls continues to be a challenge across the federal enterprise. The security industry fulfills a crucial role in cybersecurity and national security by providing the systems that manage credentials for federal workers and contractors and control access to federal facilities and computer networks. However, continuing use of low-assurance, legacy mechanisms leave significant risks unaddressed. This panel will examine ways agencies are seeking to modernize their physical access control systems with equipment and software meeting current federal standards, and the related polices and funding mechanisms necessary to support these efforts.
