    FBI's Computer Intrusion Squad


    Presentation Overview

    FBI's Computer Intrusion Squad

    The San Francisco Computer Intrusion Squad is at the forefront of the war on cyber-crime. The agents in it specialize in thwarting and tracking down hackers, and in collecting computer forensics which can turn "shredded" electronic documents into hard evidence against real-world criminals.

    At this meeting, the FBI agent will discuss:

    • Infrastructure Protection: What should be done before, during, and after an attack on your servers, databases, or network?
    • Best Practices: What are the leading internet companies, financial institutions, and government agencies doing to protect themselves that you can do too?
    • Case Studies: What have hackers broken into, and how did the FBI track them down?
    • Trends: What types of attack are becoming more prevalent? Is cyber-terrorism a credible threat? What are the unmet needs in cyber security?

    Also, all attendees of the Security SIG on Wed., February 13th will be entered to win an RSA Security Conference all-access, all-seminars pass worth over $1700!
