Upcoming Web-Based Educational Seminars
Delivering smart card programs on May 10, HSPD-12 on May 24

On May 10, we'll be hosting a program titled "Converging Smart Card Programs". We'll have vendor experts, as well as security/information leaders from some top companies (including PriceWaterhouse Coopers) which were able to use a smart as much more than a smart card. From access control to cafeterias, these folks did it all. Sign up for that webinar here; attendance is free thanks to sponsor support from Legic.

On May 24, we'll have the second in our FIPS 201/HSPD-12 webinar series. We'll review what's happening in enrollment, integration, physical access and biometrics, and also turn to such issues as what agencies and federal departments should be doing before the Oct. 1 deadline. We've just made our registration page for that webinar live; attendance, once again, is free thanks to sponsor support from Diebold, Lenel, Gemalto and Sagem Morpho.
