CFISA (The Center For Information and Security Awareness), based in Boca Raton, Florida, has announced that their CEO and Founder Michael Levin will be in person presenting at a cybersecurity workshop on July 24thand 25th, 2019 at the Directorate of Training and Doctrine, The Jamaica Defense Force, Up Park Camp, Kingston, Jamaica. The cybersecurity workshop is hosted by the University of the West Indies and the Jamaica Defense Force.
The workshop is titled “Learn About Cyber Security Vulnerabilities, Risks & Threats”, and will provide information on emerging cyber threats, risks, strategies and approaches and investigative techniques within the context of limited resources and Caribbean legal frameworks.
The workshop offers several advantages for law enforcement. These include gaining insight into cybercrime trends and how to be proactive and predictive; gaining primary cybercrime investigative knowledge; being able to evaluate the resources they have and implement strategies that are designed to optimize outcomes within the constraints of limited resources; and being able to determine common cybersecurity risks, vulnerabilities and threats.
For the business community, the workshop also offers a number of benefits. These include being able to make that paradigm shift where cybersecurity is regarded as a larger enterprise risk and business issue rather than a simple post-incident recovery IT department issue; being able to determine vulnerabilities and gaps and in the organization; being able to determine specific threats and risks that may be a threat to the viability of the business based on trends; and being able to respond so that systems, data, and program can be made more secure.
Michael Levin, who is the CEO and founder of CFISA, was a former Branch Chief of the US Secret Service, Electronic Crimes Task Force program and a former Deputy Director of the National Cyber Security Division. He worked directly under US Presidents Reagan, Clinton, GHW Bush, and GW Bush.
