Ron Ross, Computer Scientist, NIST

The National Institute of Standards and Technology has launched a four-part plan to help agencies build more secure IT systems. NIST Computer Scientist Ron Ross, who guided a new publication on the issue, tells the Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Emily Kopp that the same engineering principles that apply to bridges and buildings should apply to IT. That is, security should be built in, not added later.

Dan Madrzykowski, National Institute of Standards and Technology

Homes and buildings aren't built the way they used to be, and when they catch fire, they don't burn the same way either. Newer buildings have more open floor plans and much more use of plastics and synthetic materials. Now the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the Underwriters Laboratory have teamed up to educate firefighters on the modern fire. The course is based on a series of controlled burn experiments, performed with the help of the New York City Fire Department. Daniel Madrzykowski, a fire protection engineer and leader of the Fire Fighting Technology Group at NIST, told Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp what firefighters learn through the course.

Steve Cauffman, lead for the Disaster Resilience Framework, NIST

The massive mudslide in Washington State is the most recent example of the need for resilience in the face of disaster. The National Institutes of Standards and Technology is launching the Disaster Resilience Initiative. It will help communities recover from the aftermath of natural disasters such as the mudslide or Superstorm Sandy, which struck New York and New Jersey in 2012. Steve Cauffman, lead for the Disaster Resilience Framework at NIST, spoke to Tom Temin on the Federal Drive about the initiative's expected impact.
