Government Agencies face the immense challenge of managing security for a multitude of sites, assets and personnel. Many agencies have recently completed or are in the midst of upgrading physical access control systems (PACS) to read the FIPS 201 PIV card for physical access.

However, the imminent release of FIPS 201- version 2 (FIPS201-2) and the newest requirements emerging in the GSA Approved Products Listing (APL) for FICAM compliant card readers and validation systems may render recent PACS upgrades inadequate or even obsolete. Understanding the potentially disruptive changes of these new requirements for PIV authentication reinforced by the urgent OMB M-11-11 directive to fully align with FICAM version 2 begs the questions:

  • "What exactly are these new FICAM categories being added to the GSA APL and what does is mean for my organization?"
  • “Where should one invest to gain the greatest payback and minimize future disruptions due to new federal requirements and guidelines?”
  • “How can one future-proof physical access infrastructure across a government enterprise and minimize future disruptions and cost due to inevitable changes in FICAM security directives?”

Attend this FREE one-hour online seminar to learn:

  • What are the new GSA APL FICAM categories?
  • What’s new in FIPS 201-2 affecting PIV cards
  • What are the impacts on PACS and related systems and components of these changes?
  • How can you balance your efforts aligning with FICAM and gaining OMB M-11-11 compliance while providing for changes in FIPS 201-2 and new GSA APL requirements?
  • How to achieve PACS Federation and future-proof your security infrastructure.
