Government and Small Business Speakers Address Luncheon

The chapter hosted its January luncheon at Martins Crosswinds in Greenbelt, Maryland, with more than 500 people in attendance. The small business quest speaker was Mark Mykintyshyn, Ph.D., executive chairman of Tangilble Security. The company was founded in 1998 as an application development company with a mission to deliver complex information technology solutions. As of 2014, Tangible has increased its reach into vital commercial markets such as financial, manufacturing, retail, healthcare and more. They have also expanded such capabilities as security operations; secure development life cycle (SDLC); and governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) services. While focusing on its future, Tangible has had a clear vision as a trusted partner to federal and corporate clients—a future in which the firm is dedicated to being the forefront of cybersecurity innovation, insight and intelligent growth. Anne Newberger, who has served as the director, National Security Agency/Central Security Service (NSA/NSS) Commercial Solutions Center (NCSC) was the government speaker. The center was created in 2005 to leverage commercial relationships and to work with foreign, intelligence community and Defense Department partners to address the strategic and sensitive needs of NSA/CSS and the national security community. They have several objectives but the one that has been in the forefront of the news has been communication and transparency. With the media leaks that have occurred over the last year, it has hurt the reputation of the NSA, and they have strived to create an environment of trust via disclosures and transparency. Newberger articulated this by saying, “Explaining why and how shared spaces such as Yahoo, Google, etcetera are used to protect the U.S. while keeping civil liberties in check. By partnering with public and private sectors, they continually strive to develop signatures with internet providers, identify threats that cross multiple products, and work with other companies to update best practices in order to ensure security.”
