InfraGard WV & PGH Present: Defending our Technology; A look at Export Compliance, Illicit Proliferation and Insider Threat
To Register:

A new FBI Movie has been released for private viewings! We are using this as an opportunity to look at what we need to do to defend the hard work of Americans today. The movie, "Made in America," tells the story of the formation of a powerful partnership between the FBI, a U.S. manufacturing company, and an informant willing to serve against a nuclear proliferation network. "Made in America" is based on a real investigation involving an Iranian proliferation network; however, the lessons learned are country agnostic and the "red flags" highlighted apply to all countries whose proliferation of exported, dual-use technologies could cause harm to our Nation's security. It is a short film intended to educate private industry about the illicit procurement of U.S. export controlled items. This cautionary tale shows why every company should monitor the "red flags" exposing export control violations.

Following the movie we will have two speakers, covering illicit proliferation and Insider Threats. This will all be followed by a panel on the two topics for open discussion.

This meeting will be eye opening and applicable to all within the workplace. Those who work within security (physical and cyber) and export compliance will walk away with action items they can use every day to better our local companies in this global market.

This is open to the public, and registration is required.
