Abstract : The National Computer Security Center (NCSC) and the Computer Systems Laboratory (CSL) are pleased to welcome you to the Fifteenth Annual National Computer Security Conference. We believe that the Conference will stimulate a vital and dynamic exchange of information and foster an understanding of emerging technologies. The theme for this year's conference, Information Systems Security: Building Blocks to the Future, reflects the continuing importance of the broader information systems security issues facing us. At the heart of these issues are two items which will receive special emphasis this week-Information Systems Security Criteria (and how it affects us), and the actions associated with organizational accreditation. These areas will be highlighted by emphasizing how organizations are integrating information security solutions. You will observe how Government, Industry, and Academe are cooperating to extend the state-of-the-art technology to information systems security. Presentations will provide you with some thoughtful insights as well as innovative ideas in developing your own solutions. Additionally, panel members will address how they develop their automated information security responsibilities. This cooperative educational program will refresh us with the perspectives of the past, and will project directions of the future. We firmly believe that awareness and responsibility are the foundations of all information security programs. For our collective success, we ask that you reflect on the ideas and information presented this week; then share this information with your peers, your management, your administration, and your customers. By sharing this information, we will develop a stronger knowledge base for tomorrow's journey.
