New York Metro InfraGard Members Alliance
Our "Retail Security Summit" will be held on November 12th hosted by the Gap Inc. of 55 Thomas Street, New York, NY 10013.
Our first annual multi-organizational event, known as the NY Metro Joint Cyber Security Conference, was an overwhelming success. With participation from eight (8) regional chapters across six (6) security organizations -- InfraGard, ISACA, ISSA, CSA, (ISC)2 and OWASP -- there was an enormous brain-trust of subject matter experts to learn from:
With over 300 attendees, InfraGard had the second most attendance of all the organizations and chapters!
- Leo Taddeo, Special Agent in Charge, FBI NY Cyber Crime Division;
- Nathaniel Gleicher, Director for Cybersecurity, National Security Council Staff;
- Twenty-five (25) sessions;
- "Women in Cyber Security" panel;
Our "Finance/Banking Security Summit" was held on September 25th. Presentations included:
- SA Mike Petrouskie -- Emerging Trends in AML
- Brian Koffling -- The State of BitCoin
- Myles Edwards -- Compliance Best Practices for Financial Firms
Please join us in congratulating FBI coordinator Kirsten Ohlson as she moves on to bigger and better things within the bureau. We express our heartfelt gratitude for her years of service to the FBI InfraGard program. She will be truly missed.
In the past few months, the NY Metro InfraGard Members Alliance has taken some critical steps to revitalizing existing programs, introducing new efforts and seeking your participation in shaping the future vision of our model IMA.
Our latest educational seminars have been well received in the first two quarters of 2014, garnering a staggering 90-95% attendance rate, the best we have ever seen. This is due to the hard work and perseverance of our event planning committee, our hosting organizations, our FBI counterparts, and most importantly our membership.

Protect Our Infrastructure
Individuals protect our country! One person can make a difference.
Since our nation is comprised of systems (people, businesses, buildings, highways, farms, communications, etc.), it is important to sustain and continually improve system operations.
One way to ensure these systems continue to benefit the people, is to protect them from natural disaster, human error or terror; and set up recovery actions in the event misfortune can not be avoided.
The protection of our nation is a collaborative effort in which all citizens hold some level responsibility. Your contribution(s) are absolutely invaluable.
