What is Infragard?
Infragard® is a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) program that began in the Cleveland Field Office in 1996. It was a local effort to gain support from the information technology industry and academia for the FBI’s investigative efforts in the cyber arena. The program expanded to other FBI Field Offices, and in 1998 the FBI assigned national program responsibility for Infragard® to the former National Infrastructure Protection Center (NIPC) and to the Cyber Division in 2003. Infragard® and the FBI have developed a relationship of trust and credibility in the exchange of information concerning various terrorism, intelligence, criminal, and security matters.

Russian Hacking:
What is Old Becomes New Again

The Russian Government relies on cyber operations to project its influence abroad, monitor threats to its strategic interests, and secure political and/or military advantages over other nations. Russia has continued to expand its use of cyber space for information operations – specifically to influence Western audiences during periods of political transition. FireEye tracks several threat groups that we believe are based in Russia, including APT28 (aka Tsar Team), APT29 (aka Temp. Monkey), and Turla Team. This talk will describe the Russian cyber threat.

See BIOS below.

As always we will have sharing from our law enforcement partners and interaction with our peers.

Sector Chiefs can meet as well.
