Information Security Systems
Engineering (ISSE) Process
Full Day Seminar: Friday, Sept 26, 2008, 8:00am – 5:00pm
at SAIC in the Research Park
This “mini-symposium” will provide several presentations on the
importance of the Information Security Systems Engineering
(ISSE) process.
Our first keynote will be Barriers to the Implementation of Information System Security Engineering:
The link between security engineering and systems engineering exists at the earliest
stage of systems development. There is sufficient evidence to suggest the discipline of security engineering
is sufficiently mature to support its implementation. However, there is little in literature on the practical applicatio
of security engineering. In contrast, the body of knowledge on
quality programs is quite extensive. Specific factors related to quality implementations
quality are also well documented and generally well understood
The second keynote will present the importance of the Information Security Systems Engineering (ISSE)
process and will be oriented to information assurance (IA) methodologies utilized in the Department of
Defense. The ISSE process can include one or all of the accepted certification and accreditation
methodologies. These methodologies include NISPOM ISL - Corporate IA, ISO 17799 - International IA,
DIACAP & US Army - AR 25-2, USMC - MCO 5239.2, McCumber Cube, DIACAP System Identification
Profile and Information Assurance Risk are some of the methods covered.
Our mini-symposium will also provide presentations that expand on these two key presentations, as well as
panel questioning and generous opportunities for interaction with the speakers.

Engineering (ISSE) Process
About the Instructors: Frederick B. Beltzer is the Information Security Systems Engineer (ISSE) for
Lockheed Martin where he is currently working on the Embedded Platform Logistics System for the USMC
and is certified in the MCIAAT (Marine Corps Information Assurance Assessment Team) Blue Team
Methodology. He is responsible for the architecture, design, development, evaluation and integration of
systems, subsystems, and networks to maintain overall security IAW the appropriate MAC level,
Classification level, and level of Robustness. Fred supervises and prepares the Certification and
Accreditation documentation, using multiple standards and tools such as the DIACAP, NIACAP, DCID 6/3,
Common Criteria, and NIST 800-37, to achieve accreditation of supported systems while supporting
contractor site security IAW DSS NISPOM Ch8. He recently served as the ISSE for AT&T on OneTESS and
Senior Computer Systems Engineer / Information Assurance Analyst for the Army's ATIA AIS, where he
completed the DITSCAP C&A. In addition he served as the Senior Information Assurance Systems Engineer
for DISA's Coalition Secure Management and Operations System (COSMOS). Fred has written several
papers, including "A Systems Engineering Approach to Information Assurance - Volume 1" and "A Systems
Engineering Approach to Information Assurance - Volume 2". Key to Fred's ISSE approach is his educational
background which includes graduating with Honors from George Washington University, Masters Degree,
Systems Engineering, (G.P.A. 3.63) where he also received a Certificate, Systems Engineering, and a
Certificate, from the National Security Agency (NSA) - NSTISSI 4011 - National Training Standard for
Information Systems Security Professionals (ISSP), June 2006. Fred also received a BS, Computer
Networking from Strayer University, and graduated Suma Cum Laude (G.P.A. 3.92), where he is listed in the
"Who's Who of Academia" for the graduating year of 2000, and Honors Student for Alpha Sigma Lambda
National Honor Society.
