This is a live Ukraine Situation Report (SitRep) to update us on what’s happening in Ukraine, potential next steps, and the potential implications for the U.S., particularly in Southern California. This will be a FREE event presented by Infragard Los Angeles for our Infragard members and others who work in critical infrastructure and key resource (CIKR) areas.
The international order is still reeling from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Actions by the President, European Union, NATO and world leaders have been strong and, in many ways, unprecedented. Potentially, this crisis may result in five million refugees and tens of thousands of casualties in a kind of European war unknown since WWII. Vladimir Putin has been openly referring to nuclear weapons, NATO is rapidly reinforcing its eastern flank and the entire world is on edge. The consequences of this action are being felt here at home with spiking gas prices along with other key commodities (i.e., palladium, nickel, titanium and wheat/corn), and there is the potential for devastating cyberattacks against our critical infrastructure and possibly worse.
Hal Kempfer is a retired Marine Corps intelligence officer and CEO/Founder of Global Risk Intelligence and Planning. He is a long-time threat training expert used by both public and private sector organizations, especially InfraGard, and has been keeping our region and the nation informed on the latest developments through frequent on-air television news appearances. His Fox LiveNow analyses on the War in Ukraine have been routinely turning into some of the most in-depth interviews being seen in regular television news. An expert on Russian military tactics, he brings a unique blend of military knowledge and commercial strategic risk assessment to explain this very dangerous and fast-changing situation and its potential impact to the U.S. Critical Infrastructure sectors.
Hal will be providing a series of “Ukraine Situation Reports” (SitReps) to update our membership on the latest developments, and what they mean or could mean for both the world and for all of us here at home. These events will have time allotted for participant Q&A and an FBI threat update as available. As the situation continues to evolve, no “Ukraine SitRep” seminar will be the same as the last.
There are currently 2 dates scheduled for these briefings. The briefings will be updated as the news and on-the-ground events change. You may attend either or both.
Please Note: Due to the overwhelming response to this briefing on March 4, we are offering it with updates as they occur several more times over the following week. Due to GotoWebinar system limitations, entry is first come, first served. We recommend you log in early.
