Standards, Requirements and Resources for Modernizing Physical Access Control Systems

Tuesday, May 24th

In this session, experts from government agencies and the security industry will share the lessons learned in their efforts to modernize physical access control systems. 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.
