Assoc. of Former Intelligence Officers – Maine Chapter

March 17 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

Joe Kurlanski, President of Monarch Information Security Consulting (Monarch ISC) based in Portland, Maine, will discuss the current cybersecurity threats facing our country.  Joe will discuss current tactics, common strategies, and end games.  We will review recent examples of phishing emails and vulnerability exploitation which have led to:

  • Password Theft
  • Ransomware
  • Business Email Compromise
  • ACH Fraud
  • Industrial Espionage

To combat this growing threat to the Defense Industrial Base, Joe will discuss the DoD’s new Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC).  This new certification requires various cybersecurity defenses to be in place and will be required for all contractors and subcontractors of the DoD who handle Federal Contract Information (FCI) or Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).   Monarch ISC became the 7th organization authorized by the DoD to conduct certification assessments in 2022, trains assessors for other authorized companies, and works with DIB companies across the country preparing them for certification.
