Controlled Unclassified Information


Mark Tanner former FBI Senior Executive and Special Agent

Over the last decade, there has been a dramatic convergence of hostile criminals operating online, rapid technological advancement, increasing digital government-industry communications, insider threats and other persisting threats of espionage to government and industry. The news is full of stories about information being stolen from private citizens, corporations and governments around the world attributed to external and internal bad actors. From a government perspective, these threats will remain an ongoing concern thereby fueling their efforts to lock down and protect sensitive government information and having Industry ensure they are accountable for government information they are charged to work with. 

Our Speaker- Mark is a senior executive with a wide range of experience in law enforcement, intelligence, and business. As a Special Agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) he led criminal and counterterrorism programs, including Southwest Border Initiatives in Arizona and the Foreign Terrorist Tracking Task Force (FTTTF) established after 9/11. He established FBI’s Office of the Chief Information Officer (CIO) while serving as the deputy CIO where he was responsible for enterprise architecture and was the accrediting authority for FBI systems. Following a 23-year career with the FBI has held director and executive level positions in small, medium, and large companies.

Mark manages security related areas such as continuity of operations and information security, including audits and compliance with NIST Special Publications 800-53 security and privacy controls, as well as 800-171 for Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). He also serves as Co-Chair of the FBI’s InfraGard, Cyber Security Special Interest Group (Cyber SIG) for the National Capital Region Members Alliance.

Mark Tanner holds an accounting degree from East Carolina University and is a Certified Protection Professional (CPP).
