InfraGard Chapter Meeting in Chattanooga

Today I attended the InfraGard meeting in Chattanooga, TN. Normally this would be a five minute drive to attend, but today took much longer as I drove up from Atlanta. The meeting was excellent, as always and had good attendance. We heard a special briefing from the FBI about recent cyber security issues. The featured speaker was from BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee who spoke about the lessons learned from the Eastgate incident. This was a great opportunity for everyone to get wisdom as cheaply as you can.

The difficult part of this meeting was announcing that I was stepping down as the President of the InfraGard chapter. Serving in this role allowed me to meet so many people and help share how successful InfraGard has become throughout Tennessee. I am particularly proud of the Keeping Kids Safe Online Program I mentioned before. This has great potential to grow and impact even more students.

I am excited to report there are now 167 members in the chapter and am amazed at how it has grown over the last three years. Having both the FBI and the Tennessee Office of Homeland Security always engaged at the meetings helped foster this growth. I am certain that the chapter will remain strong and continue to prosper.
