SIM San Diego: Cyber Security Event

Due to Covid restrictions we are changing up our annual FBI event a little bit, but we think you’ll find it very much worth the investment of your time.  Join us for a unique and highly interesting cyber event where we will:

  • Take a tour of Viasat’s next GenSOC that has decades of experience protecting global satellite networks covering DoD, Commercial, and Residential customers and where they provide critical overwatch services to some of the highest levels of the US Government. 
  • Hear from the head of the Viasat Red Team who has decades of experience and training from the US Military and IC testing networks and/or products from corporate systems to highly classified weapons systems.
  • Listen to FBI Agent Nicholas Arico and former Counterintelligence Officer Mitch Wells speak about the world of catching spies.  The cyber side of hunting, the human part of hunting, an age-old question “is it better to catch them or use them” - Law Enforcement vs. Intelligence Community (IC) protecting US assets and entities.
  • Be updated on the latest trends, tactics and techniques you should be concerned about by one of the most trusted and respected cyber security solutions on the market

The networking with food and beverage will begin at the end of the event at 7:15pm
