Title: “Making a Federal Case Out of It”
The idiom “don’t make a federal case out of it” is popular because people understand that federal cases are typically reserved for the most important issues – and what is more important to a business than information security? Businesses today depend on the integrity of their computer networks to communicate, strategize, and develop their assets. Our economy – and our national security – are threatened when hackers exploit vulnerabilities in the networks. This presentation is intended to demystify the process of how and why federal cases are developed, and how the private sector can proactively work with federal law enforcement to minimize damage to themselves, deter perpetrators, protect themselves moving forward, and assist law enforcement in prosecution of those responsible.
The primary purpose of the InfraGard North Texas Members Alliance is to assist in increasing the security of the United States national infrastructures through ongoing exchanges of information relevant to infrastructure protection and through education, outreach, and similar efforts. In addition to the benefits offered by the national InfraGard organization, there are several ways our local chapter accomplishes these objectives, including:
- Local quarterly membership meetings focused on infrastructure protection
- Sector-specific meetings and information exchanges
- Partnerships and discounts to training offerings with other organizations
- Networking opportunities with peers within and across all sectors
