And that was the focus last week at the 16th Annual Conference of the Federal Information Systems Security Educators' Association in Silver Spring, Md. FISSEA cosponsored the conference with the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
Kelly Arnold of the National Security Agency's National Cryptologic School addresses the crowd during a session, 'Securing the Cyber Frontier'A Trainer's Toolkit for Improving Retention.'

Keith Rhodes, chief technologist for the General Accounting Office, delivers a keynote address, 'The Human Side of Information Assurance.'
Barbara Cuffie, principal security officer for the Social Security Administration's Office of Systems, conducts a session introducing the FISSEA executive board, which she chairs.
