ABOUT MK

MK was born and raised in Washington, D.C.  It’s no surprise he was influenced daily and at an early age by the formative sights and sounds of our government at work.  As a youth, he had already decided to embark on a career of service.  This led him to the shores of Annapolis, where he was a midshipman at the United States Naval Academy, and afterward as a commissioned officer in the United States Marine Corps.  Following his military service, MK began a 22-year journey as a Special Agent of the

Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), a key player behind numerous high-level investigations and an early combatant in the fight against cybercrime.  During this impressive career of public service, MK honed his leadership skills  , rounding out his tenure in an executive position leading the cybersecurity investigative teams of FBI San Francisco.

Solving The Greatest Threats to CyberSecurity

In MK’s own words, the solution to the cybersecurity problem requires an all hands-on deck effort. The key players are the world’s leadership (governing, law abiding nations), the private sector, and technology. But what part does each have to play in securing our networked environments? MK’s extensive background with the federal government lends a firsthand, bird’s eye view into the various threats that exist and how entities in public and private sectors can best come together to reach international partnerships in order to combat both the horrible crimes we know exist, such as child pornography, hacking, phishing -- and new ones we have yet to experience. 

“There needs to be some greater level of regulation. I envision a time when the requirement to have been audited, maintain a certain level of insurance, and the utilization of baseline frameworks becomes the norm to do business in the global markets. We have the same level of government involvement in nearly every facet of life, from the vehicles we drive, to the airplanes we use to travel for personal and business reasons. The private sector has an important role to play in this solution. The first would be to participate in the process of developing the regulatory framework from which all partners will be operating.”
