Summer is no time to slow down
Last month I attended a two-day, regional leadership summit for InfraGard chapter presidents in Pittsburgh, PA. Hosted by the Pittsburgh chapter, I, along with one of our InfraGard Coordinators, Kara Sidener, participated in several panels to help educate and inform our colleagues about best practices, successes we've had and forging the way ahead to ensure InfraGard remains relevant and useful to critical infrastructure owners and operators, the FBI and others. It felt great to share our growth, strategy and vision with other chapters. I am immensely proud of all that we have accomplished (an example of which is the intelligence product described below!) and excited about what's coming in the months ahead.
As we enter summer, things tend to slow down around Washington, DC, but rest assured we continue to push forward and have numerous opportunities for you to get engaged.
