FCW Forum: What are the long-term benefits of HSPD-12?

 


As agencies move to issue smart identification cards compliant with Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 going into high gear, many are trying to take the conversation beyond the Oct. 27 deadline to issue cards.

 


The real benefit of HSPD-12, many say, will be in the improved security of federal buildings and networks as well as the ability to authenticate and verify federal employees and contractors.


However, that real benefit may be years away and there are some who believe they will just wait out the Bush administration and not meet the Office of Management and Budget’s deadline.


How long will it take for HSPD-12 to live up to its promise of better security? Where should your agency focus its security efforts through HSPD-12?
