Webinars to focus on access control systems at government facilities

On Oct. 19, Secure Technology Alliance, a nonprofit focused on spreading knowledge about secure solutions, will present the first of six free web seminars on personal identity verification (PIV) enabled physical access control systems (PACS) in government-related facilities.

The webinars are aimed at systems engineers, security personnel and facility managers, Secure Technology Alliance said in a release.

“There are best practices for planning and deploying a PIV-compliant PACS in a government facility, and often those responsible for procurement are either not aware or have an unclear understanding of new PIV-related requirements,” Randy Vanderhoof, executive director of the Secure Technology Alliance, said in a release. “This workshop will provide practical guidance for government organizations who seek to understand how to implement standards-based PACS for high-assurance identity verification.”

The first webinar, “How to Plan, Procure and Deploy a PIV-Enabled PACS,” on Oct. 19 will delve into the ins and outs of PACS landscape. Speakers will include Mike Kelley, Parsons; Bill Windsor of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security; Lars Suneborn, Secure Technology Alliance Education Program; and Randy Vanderhoof, Secure Technology Alliance, the release said.

The web seminars will run into 2018. Click here to register.
