White House, DOD strike a deal on 5G spectrum

The White House and the Department of Defense announced a plan Monday to auction spectrum for the U.S.'s commercial development of 5G.

Developing a strong identity strategy to better serve citizens

Federal agencies that manage public assistance programs need stronger identity proofing and authentication that can streamline, improve and proactively deliver services, says a LexisNexis Risk Solutions white paper.
