Hildy Ferraiolo — Scientist, Computer Security Division, NIST
More than 90 percent of federal employees have now been issued standardized smart ID cards under Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12). The cards are supposed to let users gain secure authentication into IT systems, and in some cases physical access into buildings, though agencies are in various stages of implementing those cards' capabilities.
But those cards capabilities will evolve a bit under draft standards being proposed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. You'd be able to remotely reset your PIN code, your card would store a digital image of your face for extra security and you'd even be able to migrate your security credentials onto your mobile device.
Tom Shoop — Editor-in-Chief, Government Executive
Even though telework participation is at an all-time high, agency participation still varies greatly.
But could there be a hidden reason why your agency does or does not encourage the practice? Tom Shoop, editor-in-chief of Government Executive recently wrote a column on the issue, titled "Trust and Telework."
George Tubin — Senior Security Strategist, Trusteer
Twelve people scattered around the world were arrested two weeks ago for credit card fraud via the Internet. It was the largest international move to catch people committing so-called "carding" crimes.
The move was coordinated by the FBI, but some people say it's not a sign of safer days to come, according to a GovInfoSecurity.
George Tubin, a senior security strategist for the online security provider Trusteer, discusses why.

Brendan McGarry — Bloomberg Government reporter
In early June, Lockheed Martin, the Pentagon's — and the world's — biggest defense contractor, nabbed a missile contract worth more than $2 billion dollars from the Missile Defense Agency.
Bloomberg Government lists it as DoD's biggest contract for June. In total, Lockheed locked down almost a third of the contract dollars DoD awarded for the month.
Brendan McGarry, a reporter at BGov covering this story, joins In Depth to discuss the contract.
