While best known for their VIP protective mission, the US Secret Service has always been charged with the protection of our nation’s financial infrastructure. Moreover, the Secret Service’s world-wide network of Cyber Fraud Task Forces (CFTF) join together federal, state and local law enforcement, along with private sector partners and academia to combat cyber criminals across the globe.
A “protective advance” is the proactive and preventative work done by Secret Service teams in order to preserve the security of the people they protect. In a related fashion, planning, practice, and exercises represent the good cyber hygiene that can prevent attacks.
SAIC Joseph Scargill, from the US Secret Service Minneapolis Field Office will share the details of his agency’s cyber strategy and the criticality of establishing trusted partnerships before an incident occurs. His talk will cover the authority, capabilities, and cyber strategy of the CFTF network and how the Secret Service strives to build partnerships at all levels and in all critical infrastructure sectors to ensure when a crisis does occur, the phone call to law enforcement will be met with a familiar voice.
As a cybersecurity leader, you should have the Secret Service CFTF team’s number in your mobile phone. In this discussion, SAIC Scargill will talk about tabletop exercises, how to assure senior executives are bought-in on cyber strategy, and share useful resources from the Secret Service and other agencies that stand ready to support organizations in the region.
In this exclusive briefing for the Great Plains Virtual Cybersecurity Summit audience, he will share insights from recent case studies from across the region, and accentuate what it means to you as a cybersecurity leader.
