Mr. McGann, formerly Corporate Information Security Officer at the U.S. Postal Service (USPS), is Salient CRGT's Chief Cyber Strategist and focuses on cyber security protection offerings for the federal and commercial markets. While serving at USPS, he oversaw security for one of the world's largest corporate infrastructures, supporting more than 30,000 locations; 600 enterprise applications; and over 500,000 employees across the agency.
"As technology changes through the growth of mobile, cloud, and the Internet of Things, cyber security has to evolve as well. The Identity Theft Resource Center states that hacking incidents increased 8.4% in 2015 over the previous year, reaching a nine-year high," said Chuck McGann. "The question is not whether you will have a breach, but rather how bad will it be. Cyber intrusions are a fact of life. We need to recognize that fact and take the appropriate steps to protect our data and our customers' data to the best extent possible.
In the analysis, will your team discover that they rely too heavily on cyber tools, or possibly that employees were inadequately trained? The most important questions we have to answer are, 'How did we get here?' and 'How do we fix these issues?'"
Mr. McGann holds CISSP and CISM certifications as well as an Information Assurance Methodology certification from the National Security Agency. He previously co-chaired the Government Advisory Board on Cyber Security, is a current board member; is a participant in the EC-Council Foundation initiatives; and previously served on the government education advisory board at Symantec and on the customer advisory board at RedSeal Networks.
