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.

First Nugget: The Threat Within Thy Walls
Brigitte Sollie (bio) - Principal, Triton Technology Solutions

Presentation Abstract:
With so much focus on hackers, your company has concentrated highly on external control measures of your IT perimeter. You have invested in the best network firewalls, anti-virus solution and malware protection… but where are your gaps? Who have you already let inside your company that you should fear? Statistics show anywhere from 70%-85% of security incidents of breaches, regulation violations, comprised data, fraud, and theft come from trusted personnel associated within the company. These can include employees, consultants, temporary employees, or vendors and can cost your company thousands of dollars per violation per day. This presentation explores internal data protection and auditing techniques that will help you protect your business and catch insider wrongdoings. I will give you real life investigation examples of how to educate your staff, monitor your data, capture evidence, and properly report findings to human resources and if necessary law enforcement.

-----
Also:  
We will have an open discussion among the attendees. Please bring your ideas.

Plus:  
Emerging Threats Briefing from Law Enforcement, and sharing from members.
