DC Fintech Week
During Fintech Week, thought leaders from fintech firms across the country, from Amazon to Zcash, describe their business, and explain how their services intersect with markets for a global audience consisting of policymakers, market participants, lawyers, and thought leaders.  Last year (2018), an international array of regulators, from the Chairman of the CFTC to the Co-Director of the Colombia's central bank, layed out their perspective on the future fintech regulatory policy at Georgetown, the IMF and on Capitol Hill.  FIntech Week's orgins lay in the unveiling of the OCC fintech charter by then Comptroller of the Currency Thomas Curry at Georgetown Law's Institute of International Economic Law.  Since then the IIEL has been a locus for some of Washington's most vaunted and high profile discussions of fintech policy and innovation.  Fintech Week's founder and the Institute's director is Professor Chris Brummer.

Digital Disguises for Cyber Operations: How Cyber Red Teams Hide Their Identities and Avoid Detection When Performing Their Missions

Cyber investigators need to protect their online identity to assure a successful mission and for their own security. A growing number of options are available for masking and managing digital identities, which allow you to keep your cover when working online.

Presented by experts at Telos Corporation and CyberQRT, Disguises for Cyber Operations will provide an overview of emerging techniques that today’s red teams, threat hunters, and other cyber professionals use to conduct their operations with security and confidence. Attendees will learn:
  • The differences between non-attribution, mis-attribution, and managed attribution
  • How non-attribution hosts work – and why they aren’t enough today to keep you safe
  • Network obfuscation techniques for managing and disguising your online identity
  • A look at tools of the trade for safe and effective red-team investigations

Why attend?
Protecting the identity of your red teams is essential for an effective and realistic exercise. For cyber investigators, it prevents compromising the security and even the safety of real-world personnel.
In this webinar, you’ll learn why the methods you may be using now can’t keep up with today’s digital fingerprinting and network detection techniques. You’ll gain greater insights into the emerging technologies in this field and come away with knowledge you can share with your colleagues to keep your cyber operations safe, secure, and successful.

Implementing Object Level Controls for Security at the Data Layer
"Currently, Security and Need to Know (NTK) are managed within applications and through a laborious, human-driven process that determines appropriate roles for each new user, one user at a time. This management of controls within applications is cumbersome, inefficient, and a barrier to implementing security protocols. Object level controls will foster better sharing, enable data discovery, improve security, reduce costs, and ensure compliance."
---(from 2019 DIA CIO RIF)
We will discuss how Data Centric Design, NUTS and SDFT directly answers this need and then goes beyond it. How object level control based on our Data Centric Design will change how you see Continuous Recovery, Asymmetric Anonymity, Key Management and much more. We will also touch upon how this design naturally satisfies many regulatory requirements that have recently been introduced such as GDPR and CCPA. We will step through our prototype demo to show how these concepts fit into a secured container without any needs for a reference monitor and how they are secured by default regardless if in transit or at rest.

Accelerating into a Digital Future: Simplifying Entity Identification for the Digital Age
Identity identification today is often fragmented, using proprietary and siloed standards. This hinders the fight against financial crime, causes significant burden to Know Your Customer (KYC) or customer onboarding processes, and hampers transformation to a digital environment. The future of digital identity matters for competitiveness and security in a global and digital market. An economy where legal entity identification is done in a globally consistent, secure and efficient way brings several benefits – all of which can help firms and governments better prepare for the digital evolution.

Join the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) for our Washington Forum, “Accelerating into a Digital Future: Simplifying Entity Identification for the Digital Age,” on Thursday, October 24. Our Washington Forum, organized in collaboration with the Data Foundation, will allow attendees to engage in discussions with regulators and technology providers about how the LEI could be leveraged to enable straight-through processing, enhance entity identification efficiency, support blockchain and distributed ledger technology, and prepare for a global digital identity ecosystem. GLEIF and its partners will demo applications including the LEI in digital signatures, digital certificates and decentralized identifiers, and discuss the benefits and cost-reduction associated with the adoption of the LEI as a complement to existing entity identification systems.

The Forum is by invitation only and will abide by Chatham House rules.

Limited Capacity full

Register Here for This Event!

Dangerous myths about encryption are being increasingly used to justify laws that erode the basic foundation of trust on the Internet. It’s time to get the facts straight.

The Internet Society with the Center for Democracy & Technology, LGBT Tech, and the Open Technology Institute at New America will host a briefing to help you understand the day-to-day impact of encryption and how to ensure policies protect people, vulnerable communities, commerce and national security.

This open event will feature lunch and two panel sessions covering everything you need to know about encryption: the Technology of Encryption and The Human Side of Encryption. Experts will cover how encryption technology works, the implications of 'exceptional access' proposals, and the day-to-day impact of encryption on people and society. You'll also hear perspectives from marginalized communities that are sometimes left out of the recurring narrative.
