About Keynote Speaker MK Palmore

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.

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.
