Lessons Learned From The FBI

FBI Special Agent Kirsten Ohlson was the featured speaker at our October 3rd Seminar at the Friars Club.Here are key takeaways from her presentation:

NYC is a target-rich environment for spikes and hackers. UN and “alleged diplomats” target NYC businesses, including Architecture firms for data espionage. They will chat you up to gather information, ask you for proposals, and conveniently ask you for employee lists and other info. Things that you might think are harmless, but aren’t. They have approached mid-level employees, janitors, staff, etc.

Make friends with the FBI, Secret Service and NYPD Cyber Crimes units before you need them.
