You Can't Protect What You Don't Know: An FBI Agent’s perspective on securing yourself and your company

Our Kick off 2017 meeting will be held at the Rancho Cordova Library, 9845 Folsom Blvd

While incidents are inevitable there are ways to minimize exposure to attacks and to be more prepared in a post breach world. I will discuss my experience as a veteran FBI Cyber Special Agent, and now security director at Tanium, who has worked major data breaches across the country and is now helping companies detect and defend against the evolving cyber threats. We will explore the current state of security and the threats that affect most organizations today. You will hear some challenges and successes experienced both while in the FBI, and the private sector, and how that may affect your security decisions. You will also get a glimpse into some high profile attacks and how you can try to detect, mitigate and potentially even avoid them. Then we will take a step forward and think about what new security problems might be awaiting us in the future. My goal is to make you more aware of the reality of security threats and have you walk away with some thoughts on how to help protect yourself and your organization.
