Please Register (see the tab above) by Wednesday, June 13, so we can order enough food.

George will provide an educational background on the NIST Cyber Security Framework ("NIST CSF") and provide regulatory compliance references and mappings to some of the most common cloud architectures available today (ie: AWS, Azure)

The NIST CSF will also be profiled along with a punch list of tasks along with goals and outcomes in a moderate level 800-53v4 profile and parallel mappings to CSC CIS 7.0 and ISO 27002.

Finally, an overview of Sactech's consulting and compliance maintenance service will also be provided for businesses and organizations looking to a two-party model of Cyber Compliance Oversight and Maintenance to strengthen your CISO management profile and improve the overall cyber security posture of your entire organization.

George Usi has an impressive background and focus on compliance, especially the CSF. George holds a bachelor’s degree in Strategic Management from California State University Sacramento.  In addition to his role as CEO, he Co-Chairs the California IPv6 Task Force, also headquartered in Gold River, with supporting operations in the Bay Area.  George also funds and invests in AI and Digital Emotions technology startup companies based in California.

George’s career began in the 1990s with Verio/NTT where he held multiple technical and managerial positions in security and networking during the company’s rocket-growth phase.  In early 2000, he was placed by Venture Capital Firm Digital Ventures to found and lead Development for award-winning solution provider Fusionstorm.

George founded SACTECH together with John Riley around the time his late wife was diagnosed with breast cancer.  In managing her care, he recognized how casually businesses processed and managed personally identifiable information when a fellow widower had his late wife’s privacy data compromised.  George set a goal to help improve corporate security posture so businesses can more effectively protect critical privacy and other sensitive data from cyber threats.

George’s family began the American Dream in 1910 working in the steel industry back east.  He grew up in Sunnyvale and Pollock Pines, CA graduating from El Dorado High School and Cosumnes River College prior to attending CSUS.  George heavily advocates Breast Cancer Awareness and Women’s Health and is a Level II apprentice blacksmith.
