Judith Spencer

Chair, Federal Public Key Infrastructure Steering Committee: General Services Administration

Judith Spencer is the Chair, Federal Identity Credentialing Committee (FICC) at the General Services Administration. In this capacity, she is responsible for building consensus and promoting cross cutting solutions for unified logical/physical credentialing of Federal employees as directed in Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12, Policy for a Common Identification Standard for Federal Employees and Contractors. In addition, Ms. Spencer helps foster a united approach to Federal Identity Management activities – promoting a single activity that combines the goals of HSPD-12, the Federal Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), and e-Authentication. She works closely with the Federal PKI Policy Authority, in which capacity she promotes interagency cooperation and interoperability in the deployment of PKI. A key accomplishment of the Federal PKI is the Common Policy Framework that sets the requirements for the use of PKI in attaining HSPD-12 compliance. In addition, the Federal Bridge Certification Authority (FBCA) continues to promote interoperability between discrete trust domains and is a valuable resource to overall e-authentication activities. Prior to her current position, Ms. Spencer managed the Federal Information Security Infrastructure Program at GSA, which sought information systems security solutions for internet-based communications using public key technology. In addition, Ms. Spencer was involved in the efforts of the Federal sector to promote Critical Infrastructure Protection across the Departments and Agencies. Towards this end, Ms. Spencer led the transition of the Federal Computer Incident Response Capability (FedCIRC) from a pilot to operational status and worked with Federal agencies to build consensus for intrusion detection and incident response to unauthorized electronic exploitation. This activity culminated in USACERT at the Department of Homeland Security.
Ms Spencer has been involved in Federal Information Systems Security efforts for the past 34 years.
