Date:1/13/2009

General Victor E. Renuart, Jr., will address attendees regarding the implementation of Homeland Security Presidential Directive/HSPD – 24 at the 2009 Biometrics Conference www.ndia.org/meetings/9860 on January 27-28, 2009 at the Sheraton National Hotel in Arlington, VA.

Arlington, VA (Vocus) January 13, 2009 – General Victor E. Renuart, Jr., Commander, North American Aerospace Defense Command and U.S. Northern Command, Peterson Air Force Base, CO, will address attendees regarding the implementation of Homeland Security Presidential Directive/HSPD – 24 at the 2009 Biometrics Conference (http://www.ndia.org/meetings/9860) January 27-28, 2009 at the Sheraton National Hotel in Arlington, VA.

General Renuart will discuss his plan to bolster Homeland Security identification and screening efficacy through the use of biometrics in response to Homeland Security Presidential Directive/HSPD – 24. He will also touch on how the biometrics industry, the Department of Defense and Homeland Security, The Attorney General working with the Secretaries of State, the Director of National Intelligence and the Director of the Office of Science and Technology will join forces to develop an Action Plan for implementing HSPD-24 by June 2009.

The purpose of Homeland Security Presidential Directive/HSPD – 24 is to establish a framework to ensure that Federal executive departments and agencies use mutually compatible methods and procedures in the collection, storage, use, analysis, and sharing of biometric and associated biographic and contextual information of individuals in a lawful and appropriate manner, while respecting their information privacy and other legal rights under United States law.

“Cross agency compatible Biometric technologies will allow us to screen and identify possible threats with a higher level of accuracy and efficiency than we’ve ever experienced before.” said Martha Karlavic, Chair person of the NDIA Industrial Committee on Biometrics and the Vice President of Security & Identity Management for SAIC. “We’ve designed an agenda for this conference to address the challenges in identifying the enabling technologies that address the current, and more importantly, future demands for a screening, analysis and information sharing pipeline that will keep us one step ahead of an ever evolving threat to national security. We’ve extremely excited about General Victor E. Renuart, Jr.’s involvement in this year’s conference as well as the cast of speakers that we’ve been able to assemble to address this pressing issue for industry and government.”

HSPD-24, “Biometrics for Identification and Screening to Enhance National Security,” June 2008, creates the framework for a biometric network, to defeat a terrorist network by “sharing of biometric and associated biographical and contextual information.” It calls for a “layered approach to identification and screening of individuals, as no single mechanism is sufficient” across multiple sovereign jurisdictions of Federal, States, local and tribal authorities. The Federal Government has responsibility for 115 airports, 14 seaports, 150 land ports, 220 consulates and two sea borders and the two land borders with numerous waterways. HSPD-24 is challenged by multiple jurisdictions, different technologies and policies.

NDIA’s 2009 Biometric Conference has been designed to be an open forum for identifying and discussing practical approaches to the challenges of successfully implementing HSPD-24.

The NDIA conference will examine a broad spectrum of issues ranging from:

  • Policy development
  • Existing and planned U.S. Government programs
  • Examples of commercial application of biometrics to address mission critical business goals
  • Enabling technologies
  • Initiatives within the international community
  • Challenges to achieving true interoperability and information sharing
The conference’s goal is to develop a mutual understanding and cardinal direction for possible solutions wherein jurisdiction gaps are closed, technologies are interoperable and policies are cohesive.
