Society increasingly relies on new information technologies and the Internet to conduct business, manage industrial activities, engage in personal communications, and perform scientific research. These same technologies, which allow for enormous gains in efficiency, productivity, and communications, expose us to new vulnerabilities from those who would do us harm. The same interconnectivity that allows us to transmit information around the globe at the click of a mouse also creates unprecedented opportunities for criminals, terrorists, and hostile foreign nation-states to steal money or proprietary data, invade private records, conduct industrial espionage, engage in Information Warfare, or cause a vital infrastructure to cease operations.

Protecting our critical infrastructures in the Information Age raises new challenges for all. Foremost, it requires a partnership between the government and private industry to reduce our vulnerability to attack and increase our capability to respond to new threats. Mr. Roger Wilson, Supervisory Special Agent FBI, will speak to us about the National Infrastructure Protection Center (NIPC). This center was established in 1998 to serve as our government's focal point for threat assessment, warning, investigation, and response to threats or attacks against our critical infrastructures. The Infragard initiative has a website (http://www.nipc.gov) for companies and private sector institutions to provide or share information openly about computer intrusions. There is also a secure web site that a company would use to provide the intrusion information just to the FBI.

Agent Wilson will provide insight into the FBI's current initiatives and their experiences dealing with threats to the telecommunications, energy, banking and finance, water systems, government operations, and emergency services infrastructures. A fifteen-minute video highlights an FBI case called Solar Sunrise, an intrusion into a military system during the Gulf War and details what happened and the possible impact to national security had it not been caught.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Roger D. Wilson is a 23-year veteran of the FBI. He is a Supervisory Special Agent (SSA) with over 20 years experience in Foreign Counter-intelligence and Terrorism investigations. He has served at FBI Headquarters and in the Houston, Portland (Oregon) and Washington, D.C. divisions. He currently supervises the National Security Squad for the FBI’s Cincinnati Division, which is staffed by Special Agents in Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus, and Athens, Ohio. His supervisory responsibilities include Foreign Counter-intelligence, International Terrorism, and the National Infrastructure Protection and Computer Intrusion Program (NIPCIP).

SSA Wilson supervises three NIPCIP sub- programs: Key Assets, Computer Intrusions, and Infragard. Key Assets involves the identification and protection of key infrastructures within the division, of which the disruption via physical or cyber attacks would have a local, regional or national impact. Computer Intrusions involves investigations of break-ins of military, university and corporate systems. Infragard is an outreach initiative to establish a working relationship between the FBI and the public and private sectors, providing cyber threat advisories, education and training, and computer intrusion referrals. The Cincinnati Division started one of the FBI’s first Infragard chapters and has two Infragard members on the national provisional board. For the past two years, SSA Wilson has directed Cincinnati’s Infragard program.
