Anakam CTO Testimony to Health Information Technology Policy Work Group on Authentication
Brent Williams, Anakam Identity Services Chief Technolgy Officer, addressed the Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN) Workgroup of the Health Information Technology Policy Committee. His testimony discussed how authentication engenders trust between users and systems within a complex framework of relationships. Fundamental to this architecture is that organizations can only establish trust between one another after they have established trust with their end users, their own systems, and the other organizations with whom they interface.
