The InfraGard Knoxville meeting dates are regularly scheduled to fall in the odd numbered months – on the second Thursday of January, March, May, July, September, and November. This will avoid conflicting in October with the East Tennessee Cyber Security Summit, which InfraGard helps to sponsor, and the December holiday activities. __________________________________________________________
The InfraGard Knoxville Members Alliance will be meeting on Thursday, November 12, 2015, starting at 11:30 AM in the auditorium of King University. The guest speaker will be Supervisory Special Agent Joel K. Feaster II, Supervisor of the FBI’s Knoxville Division Counterintelligence Squad.
On their Counterintelligence National Strategy webpage, the FBI lays out a blueprint for protecting U.S. secrets. Its overall goals are:
- Keep weapons of mass destruction, advanced conventional weapons, and related technology from falling into the wrong hands
- Protect the secrets of the U.S. intelligence community
- Protect the nation’s critical assets
- Counter the activities of foreign spies
SSA Feaster will present an update on the most serious current and emerging threats seen today as well as discussing the importance of developing strategic partnerships with businesses and colleges and universities to strengthen information sharing and counterintelligence.
A 1994 graduate of Xavier University, SSA Feaster, entered the FBI following four years in the U.S. Army Field Artillery. He has served the FBI in New York City, Amarillo TX, Washington DC, and currently here in Knoxville. He is married with three teenage children.
King University’s Knoxville campus is located at 10950 Spring Bluff Way – the Hardin Valley Road exit off TN-162, literally across the street from Pellissippi State Community College.
