Security Professionals:

The (ISC)2 Quantico Chapter Meeting

will be Wednesday, May 15th at 6:00 P.M.

At Cask LLC, in Aquia Towne Center, Stafford, VA

Our speaker will be Mark Fearer.

He will be speaking on “Cybersecurity: No longer just an IT issue.

Please join us at the Quantico Chapter of (ISC)2 to hear our Keynote Speaker, Mark Fearer will discuss the domains of insider threat, access control, and awareness training then compare and contrast information security with physical security. 

Information security and physical security share at least the domains of insider threat, access control, and awareness training. Protecting the keys to the kingdom involves safeguarding assets. What do you wish to protect? How valuable is what you wish to protect? An Impact Analysis identifies valuable assets via Risk Assessment. In comparing and contrasting information security with physical security we have in common at least gatekeepers, authentication, insider threats, awareness training, and the issues of factory defaults.

The event is free, registration is not required, and will be held on Wednesday, May 15th, 6 pm at Cask, LLC, 475 Aquia Town Center, Suite 305, Stafford, VA.  For additional information please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
