Lt. Col.

Voigts discussed the mission of the Marine Corps Installations West-Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton (MCIWest-MCB Camp Pen) G-6 in relationship to cybersecurity. MCIWest and MCB Camp Pen recently completed a merge of their respective CIS departments to form the MCIWest-MCB Camp Pen G-6; additionally, MCIWest-MCB Camp Pen recently completed the handover of the garrison network from being contractor ran (Navy Marine Corps Internet) to now being the responsibility of the MCIWest-MCB Camp Pen G-6.

Voigts highlighted the most common network incidents include classified spillages, unauthorized removable media (unauthorized devices flash drives, iPhones, iPads), personal identifiable information (PII) spillage and suspicious email/activity on the network. Col. Voigts stressed best practices for protecting the network: first and foremost, do not plug unauthorized equipment/devices into the network, protect PII and ensure Authorizations to Operate are approved and up to date.
