Best Practices in Temporary Access for Visitors and Short-Term Contractors at Government Facilities

FIPS 201 regulates a large portion of the government workforce through the PIV credential, but does not extend the PIV to many individuals who are arguably less trusted.  These individuals include short-term contractors, interns, visitors, and others who often need temporary access to sensitive areas and resources.  Today, many government agencies use logical and physical access management technologies to provision credentials for PIV holders, but use an outdated mix of manual processes and spreadsheets, paper logs or disparate workstation systems to manage access privileges for everyone else.

This begs the question, why are secure, efficient, and auditable processes used for only the most trusted individuals needing access?  Please join us for a free expert-led webinar discussion on best practices for pairing tried and true, industry-tested technologies – with cost, risk and compliance in mind – to optimize temporary access management.

Key takeaways you don’t want to miss:

  1. Learn how to automate the entire identity lifecycle, from registration through provisioning
  2. Protect PII in a comprehensive way
  3. Explore how different identity types drive different workflows for temporary access
  4. Align with FICAM and NIST SP800-116, and enforce compliance with policies

Neil Fallon is the Director of Government Sales for HID Global’s Identity and Access Management group. His focus is securing identities using the strong, people-focused cyber solutions. These range from using PKI authentication mechanisms that has been adopted by the US Federal government federated credential standard FIPS 201-2, to two-factor authentication using a mobile application for push notification. Neil was the Director of sales for Codebench, when it was acquired by HID Global in December 2013. The Codebench software suite, now rebranded pivCLASS…provides a seamless transition to HSPD-12 or FIPS-201-2 compliance by leveraging a facility’s physical access control system for card validation, authentication, and registration. HID’s pivCLASS software currently integrates with 40 different physical access control software platforms, making it the most comprehensive integrated solution on the market today. Neil Fallon has more than 30 years professional experience in sales and management of security solutions, primarily focused within the Physical Security and ID Management industries. Prior to joining Codebench, Neil was involved with supplying rugged, hand-held OEM manufacturers that were deployed within ports and harbors to authenticate the Transportation Workers Identification Credential (TWIC).
