  • May General Meeting - The Cyberthreat Landscape v2016
    Date: Thursday, May 26th, 2016
    Time: 11:30am - 1:00 PM
    Speaker: Special Agent John Caruthers
    Topic: The Cyberthreat Landscape v2016

    Presentation Overview: Today's landscape is littered with cyber threats from all angles: hactivists, financially motivated actors, and nation states. What was once an annoyance is now severely affecting the bottom line of companies across all sectors. This discussion will provide a high-level overview of how the FBI views the cyberthreat, how they investigate it, and what can be done based on years of interacting with private sector partners.
    Speaker Bio:
    SSA Caruthers has been with the FBI since 1992, when he was hired in Washington, D.C. He became an FBI Agent in 1999. During his time in the FBI, John has supported the White Water investigation in LR, AK; investigated the Arellano-Felix Mexican drug cartel; served as San Diego’s Innocent Images coordinator; completed 2 assignments to FBI Headquarters’ Cyber Division; served as the FBI’s primary ICS/SCADA Threat Coordinator; and served overseas in Russia, Ukraine and The Netherlands. John is currently serving as Supervisory Special Agent of the San Diego Division’s National Security Cyber Squad.
