MARFORCYBER Marine Corps 237th Birthday Ball

I had the privilege to attend the very first MARFORCYBER Marine Corps 237th Birthday Ball in Baltimore, MD. The event was rich in tradition and Marine history. It is customary at Marine Corps birthday celebrations worldwide to cut and share a traditional cake in celebration of the birth of our illustrious Corps.
The United States Marine Corps Forces Cyberspace Command is a functional formation of the United States Marine Corps to protect critical infrastructure from cyberwarfare.  It comprises a command element, the Marine Corps Network Operations Security Center, and a company from the Marine Corps Cryptologic Support Battalion, a total of approximately 800 dedicated personnel.
Marine Corps Forces Cyberspace Command is an example of discipline and organizational cyber capabilities within the DoD. Congratulations to MARFORCYBER for leading the way in the protection of our national security!

Career Thoughts

I am humbled and honored to have the opportunity to manage and run one of the biggest and most active forums on the Internet dealing with cyber warfare and cyber security – CSFI (The Cyber Security Forum Initiative). With over 16 years of cyber security experience, I continue to actively raise Cyber Warfare/Cyber Security awareness worldwide. I have worked as a Chief Security Engineer for AT&T, where I designed and approved secure networks for MSS. I have also consulted for several governments, military and private institutions on best network security practices throughout my career.

CSFI and its divisions CSFI-CWD (Cyber Warfare Division), CSFI-LPD (Law and Policy Division) and CSFI-WD (Wireless Division) continue to grow and expand with more than 60,000 information security members.

One of my personal goals is to serve our security community to the best of my abilities, in the protection and defense of our American national security interests, the American people, and that of our international partners. I am always ready to serve and to give of my time and skills to help our society with the growing problems we experience in cyberspace. I thank God and my family for the opportunities I have had in life and the most precious of all opportunities, which is the chance to serve others. I love what I do, and I appreciate all the support I have received from friends, family and our CSFI members.
