New York Metro InfraGard Members Alliance

What's New

NY Metro InfraGard's 2015 Security Summit will be on "Healthcare Cyber Security".

Researchers, health care providers and IT professionals are encountering new challenges regarding personal health information data security, privacy and data integrity. Preparedness, prevention, detection and breach response strategies are key elements of an enterprise Information Security Program to ensure appropriate controls are in place to protect patient data.

In the wake of recent events such as the Ebola Crisis, the importance of formal Emergency Preparedness and Response Plans, regardless of the incident (e.g. epidemic, IT security, disaster event), are important elements of an overall enterprise management and governance strategy.

This conference will provide attendees with both a high level understanding of these challenges and impart practical tools and skills to deal with future events.

Session topics include data privacy, security, integrity and fraud detection/prevention strategies, as well as, practical guidelines for developing and implementing comprehensive Emergency Preparedness and Incident Response Plans.

Please arrive early, check-in will be from 7:00 am – 8:00 am.

Malware Investigator
There is some confusion when an InfraGard member goes to and selects the InfraGard channel, it drops back to the InfraGard secure portal home page. Note: the InfraGard member needs to be already logged into the InfraGard portal for the proper redirection to take place.

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. Join InfraGard Today!
