Lunch Keynote 2017


You've read the headlines. Unfortunately, the question now is not if your information is going to be accessed or stolen, but when. No organization is immune to these attacks. In an effort to inform the attendees of current developments in the digital underground as well as provide realistic advice for cyber protection, Mark Lanterman will be discussing recent high profile cyber-crime events, including Web Site breaches impacting retailers, banks, and government agencies. Security threats that specifically target the infrastructure of the U.S. government will also be discussed. Mark will discuss particularly dangerous types of threats that might effect individuals such as the Dark Web, the Internet of Things, phishing, and Wi-Fi attacks.



Mark Lanterman is the Chief Technology Officer of Computer Forensic Services. Before entering the private sector, Mark was a member of the U.S. Secret Service Electronic Crimes Taskforce. Mark has 28 years of security and forensic experience and has testified in over 2000 cases. He is an adjunct instructor at the University of Minnesota, Mitchell Hamline Law School, and the National Judicial College in Reno, Nevada. Mark recently presented to the entire federal judiciary at the Federal Judicial Center in Washington D.C.
