U.S. Attorney Invited to Speak At AGA’s Guam Professional Development Conference
Alicia A.G. Limtiaco, United States Attorney for the Districts of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands (NMI), was invited to be speak at the Association of Government (AGA) 8th Biennial Guam Professional Development Conference held on September 12-14, 2016, at the Westin Resort Guam. The theme of the conference was “Tools, Trends, and Techniques in Today’s Financial Environment.”
U.S. Attorney Limtiaco’s presentation was on Cybersecurity Awareness. U.S. Attorney Limtiaco shared that cybersecurity is a top priority for the U.S. Government and that securing the nation’s networks and information from exploitation and damage requires improved information-sharing and enhanced coordination between the private and public sectors. To that end, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) meets with companies like those in attendance at the conference to discuss the potential cybersecurity threats they face and what DOJ and its federal partners can do to help defend, respond, enforce, prevent and protect our community and our country. U.S. Attorney Limtiaco also discussed cybercrimes such as identity theft and other online fraud schemes and the importance of protecting one’s privacy on social media.
The training was attended by over 130 participants from Guam and our neighboring islands of Saipan, Northern Mariana Islands, Pohnpei, Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of Palau and the Republic of the Marshall Islands.
