Mr. Daniel G. Wolf, the National Security Agency's Director of Information Assurance, will speak at the 14 th Annual RSA Conference on Wednesday, 16 February 2005, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California.
Mr. Wolf's presentation will focus on the challenges of maintaining adequate security in the face of the today's hyper-connected information environment. His presentation will include topics such as national information assurance challenges, opportunities for partnering with industry, protecting the DoD's Global Information Grid, and NSA's Centers of Academic Excellence. The information assurance challenges that the U.S. government faces in the future will require everyone on the network to work together to improve security.
