Jonathan Branker of CGH Speaks in Zurich

February 22, 2014

Jonathan Branker of CGH Technologies spoke at the International Conference on Emerging Networking, Communication & Computing Technologies (ICENCCT 2014) in Zurich, Switzerland. The Conference was organized by the Institute of Information System & Research Center (IISRC) to provide a platform for researchers, engineers, academicians, and industrial professionals from all over the world to present their research results and development activities in Engineering and Computer Science. It also was designed to provide opportunities for the delegates to exchange new ideas, establish business or research relations, and find global partners for future collaboration.

Mr. Branker’s paper and presentation, titled Applying Systems Thinking to Adjudicate Privacy and Trust Concerns in Identity and Access Management Systems, has subsequently been published in the March/April 2014 issue of the International Journal of Information Technology & Computer Science (IJITCS), Volume 13:2.

Mr. Branker’s paper focused on a key issue facing secure facilities: law enforcement personnel and first responders being denied access to these facilities during emergency situations. He first explored how Identity and Access Management (IdAM) Systems evolved as autonomous systems while the need for sharing of Personal Identity Verification (PIV) information and the collection, retention, use, and disposal of credentialing information has led to privacy and trust issues. He then proposed strategies for action and avenues for further research.

Mr. Branker is one of the many CGH staff members who are Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) in Aviation topics. He has extensive background in Airports and Aviation Solutions, as well as Telecommunications, Networking, and Product Development. He was one of the key representatives of private industry who developed the current minimum security requirements for Airport Access Control Systems.
