The Greater Augusta ISSA invites you to join us for our next meeting. We are excited to have Tony Sager present "The Fog of More: an Information-Centric View of Cybersecurity"!
Tony Sager is a Senior VP and Chief Evangelist for the Center for Internet Security. He leads the development of the Critical Security Controls, a worldwide consensus project to find and support technical best practices in cybersecurity. His “volunteer army” cuts across all segments of the industry to identify practices that will stop the vast majority of attacks seen today, and then leads projects that will validate, measure, scale, and share these practices for widespread adoption. Tony also serves as the Director of the SANS Innovation Center, a subsidiary of The SANS Institute.
Tony retired from the National Security Agency in June 2012 after 34 years as an Information Assurance professional. He started his career in the Communications Security (COMSEC) Intern Program, and worked as a mathematical cryptographer and a software vulnerability analyst. After moving into leadership positions, Tony helped found and then led the Systems and Network Attack Center, oversaw all Red and Blue Team projects, established and led security product evaluation teams, helped guide the agency's top talent development programs, served as the founding chief of the Vulnerability Analysis and Operations Group (comprised of 700 of the NSA's top technical cybersecurity specialists serving the defensive mission), and was the Chief Operating Officer for the Information Assurance Directorate. Tony also led the release of NSA security guidance to the public starting in 2001, and greatly expanded NSA’s role in the development of open standards for security.
Mr. Sager holds a B.A. in mathematics from Western Maryland College and an M.S. in computer science from The Johns Hopkins University. Tony is also a civilian graduate of the US Army Signal Officer Basic Course and the National Security Leadership Course.
