SUMMARY:

NIST announces a National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) Workshop to be held on Tuesday, June 26, 2012. This is an initial informational NCCoE workshop.

The workshop will also describe and explore opportunities for industry, academia, and Federal, state and local government agencies to participate in the NCCoE.

DATES:

The NCCoE Workshop will be held on Tuesday, June 26, 2012 from 8 a.m. Eastern Time to 5 p.m. Eastern Time. Attendees must register by 5 p.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday, June 19, 2012.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The NCCoE is a public-private collaboration for accelerating the widespread adoption of integrated cybersecurity tools and technologies. The NCCoE will bring together experts from industry, government and academia under one roof to develop practical, interoperable cybersecurity approaches that address the real world needs of complex Information Technology (IT) systems. By accelerating dissemination and use of these integrated tools and technologies for protecting IT assets, the NCCoE will enhance trust in U.S. IT communications, data, and storage systems; lower risk for companies and individuals in the use of IT systems; and encourage development of innovative, job-creating cybersecurity products and services.

This initial workshop will provide a venue for discussion of the NCCoE public-private partnership structure, and describe and gather input from individual participants on possible case studies that are expected to form a central focus of collaborative efforts. The workshop will also describe and explore opportunities for industry, academia, and Federal, state and local government agencies to participate in the NCCoE.

The workshop is open to the general public; however, those wishing to attend must register at https://www.fbcinc.com/NIST/nccoe/atreg1.aspx by 5 p.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday, June 19, 2012, in order to attend.
