The CIO Council put electronic security concerns through the wringer last month at the Secure E-Business Executive Summit in Washington.

The e-security conference, described as a two-day executive boot camp, also was co-hosted by the Society for Information Management, the Intelligence Community CIO Office and the Defense Department.

Larry Johnson, information assurance chief architect for the Defense Logistics Agency, and Rex Myers, information assurance technical framework director for the National Security Agency, take part in a panel discussion on building secure infrastructures.

Former DOD official Marv Langston, now a vice president with Science Applications International Corp., talks about enterprise integration with Mark Day, deputy CIO of the Environmental Protection Agency.

Government IT managers attend one of the summit's 25 panels, sessions and workshops.

Among the speakers conducting a workshop on using public-key infrastructures for security were Peter Alterman, director of operations in the National Institutes of Health's Office of Extramural Research.
