Presentation: Network Usability vs Security: A Polarity to be Managed
Date/Time: Friday, October 26, 2018, 1800-2100
Location: The New Sanno Hotel, Minami-Azabu, Minato-ku, Tokyo
Speaker: CAPT J. Steve Correia, Commanding Officer, U.S. Naval Computer and Telecommunications Station Far East (NCTS Far East)

Summary: Join us for our monthly AFCEA seminar series. At Naval Computer and Telecommunication Station (NCTS), Far East, the mission is to operate and defend mission critical, Navy warfighting networks and communications systems necessary for U.S. Naval, Joint, and Coalition Commanders to conduct secure command and control in the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command (USINDOPACOM) theater of operations. At times, operating a usable network is at odds with defending it. Finding the right balance is not a dichotomy. In his book “Polarity Management” Barry Johnson argues that many challenges are not problems to be solved, but rather polarities (interdependent, opposing states) to be managed. In this talk, CAPT Correia, the Commanding Officer of NCTS Far East, has a frank discussion on how NCTS Far East is approaching the polarity of operating AND defending.

The New Sanno is a U.S. military complex, and requires an official government issued identification card with picture (ie. Passport, JP drivers license, Zairyu Card, DoD CAC, DoD Dependent ID, DoD Retired ID, etc.) for entry. See below for more information.
