CSFI offers the Defense Department and Commercial entities the tools, knowledge, and collaborative opportunities crucial for the protection of their networks. In today's National Security and Business Environment defending networks is an imperative. For me the association has made me more appreciative of the challenges faced by individuals and organizations in protecting their networks from a variety of groups with nationalistic or ideological agendas. I am honored and privileged to be a member of the CSFI Team and encourage others to become involved and to get interconnected."
