Securing Data in Government and Health

For June's meetup, we will be travelling to the Universities at Shady Grove for our first meetup in Montgomery County.

Often in data science, the discussion centers around the tools, techniques, and skills used by developers and statisticians to extract value from data. What is overlooked though is data security. In the two talks tonight, we will discuss the security challenges that organizations facing with the growth of data analysis.

Topics

Health IT Mobile

Established in 2012 through a partnership between NIST, the State of Maryland and Montgomery County, the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) is dedicated to furthering innovation through the rapid identification, integration and adoption of practical cybersecurity solutions.  The NCCoE’s first use case within the Secure Exchange of Electronic Health Information Demonstration Project focuses on securely exchanging information through the use of mobile devices. Gavin will speak on the NCCoE’s process for developing practical cyber solutions and status of the Health IT Mobile Device Use Case.

 

Securing the Data

Health and Human Services (HHS) agencies around the county are presented with a set of unique opportunities and challenges regarding data and new technology. HHS in Montgomery County must face a growing, diverse population with a constrained budget. New technologies and data analysis capabilities have empowered service workers to operate with more mobility. However, securing that data to comply with federal laws and other mandates requires caution. Uma will speak on the technology challenges facing her department in the coming years and the opportunities she sees for improved analytics.

 

Speakers

Gavin O’Brien is a computer scientist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence. He launched the center’s first Health IT and, since early 2013, has been overseeing a use case for mobile device security. Prior to joining the center in 2012, Mr. O’Brien spent 13 years at NIST’s IT Laboratory.  Mr. O’Brien received a BS in Mathematics from Bates College and a MS in computer science from the University of Tennessee.

 

Uma Ahluwalia is the Director of the Department of Health and Human Services for Montgomery County, MD. Previously, she was Assistant Secretary for Children’s Administration for the State of Washington’s Department of Social and Health Services, and from 2001 to 2003, she was Acting Assistant Chief of Staff in the Office of Maryland Governor Parris Glendening. Ahluwalia holds a Masters in Social Work from the University of Delhi in India and a Specialist Post-Masters in Health Services Administration from George Washington University.

    Matt, and, Jason, thank you so very much. You guys are PHENOMENAL. The greatest and, the best. Thank you for your work in organizing and, giving us all the opportunity to come to this wonderful networking event. Your kindness is greatly appreciated. I know this takes work, and your kindness and generosity is greatly appreciated.

    I intend to record but, only after getting both you permission and, the presenters permission to do so. I want to help my fellow group Member but, only after I secure your and, the presenters blessings to do so. Prior to the event I will approach you all to do so. My tools should allow me to enjoy and record as well. Thanks to technology we can do beautiful things today.

    If anyone would like to video tape the presentations, please feel free however note that you do not have to. We have recorded our last three previous meetups and 2 of the three are on our YouTube channel with the third to follow soon. Tuesday night's presentations will also be posted to this channel as long as the presenters agree to it. So if you want to just sit back and enjoy the presentations, then please do knowing that we will take care of the video. Also, look for more information at the upcoming meetup and on DC2's page for additional information about the YouTube channel. I look forward to seeing everyone Tuesday night.

    No need to bring a video camera. I have a pencam ( not sure if it has audio on it, 4 GB) and polarized sport sunglasses with built in video camera ( this one def has Audio in it. 8 GB) comes with a USB. Between both we can decide which one to use. And both come with USB port to transport the video onto a disk or email ( depending on how big the file is.)

    Would there be any way to get either audio or video of this recorded? It's an important topic and one I would like to hear about, but I have a meeting at 4 in Baltimore and there is no way I would make it to Rockville in time.
