January 3, 2012 -- It is hard for a federal IT professional to get a handle on one of the icons of information technology, Unisys.

On today's show, Steve Vinsik, vice president and partner, Global Security Solutions for Unisys Corporation, joins host John Gilroy to talk about a wide range of Unisys initiatives.

Vinsik gives a thorough introduction to a concept known as NSTIC - National Strategy for Trusted Identification in Cyberspace.

The NSTIC is a public private initiative to combine passwords with biometric identification.

Walt Disney World, for example, uses biometric identification to manage guests in its Florida operation.

Unisys is typically known as a vendor to enterprise organizations.

Many are surprised at its Unisys Security Index that focuses on consumers.

Vinsik explains how consumers' perceptions of security can have a drastic impact on malware development.
