Register while space remains for the 2017 NCMF General Membership Meeting & Annual Symposium - "How Cyber Has Changed the World Around Us" - on 18 October from 0900 to 1500 hours in Laurel, MD. Guest speakers include Dr. Mary Aiken, renowned Irish forensic cyberpsychologist and author of The Cyber Effect. She will discuss impacts of one of the most transformational influences in our lifetime―Cyber. What does it mean, why is it so transformative, what are the impacts? In reality, it's a major influence on virtually every aspect of our lives. If you think Cyber doesn't affect everything in your life, attend to better understand the influences, risks, and cultural transformations being driven by our rapid embrace of a technology with surprising ramifications.
The new Deputy Director of NSA, George Barnes, will talk to us, and attendees will get an update on the current and future museum initiative, the Cyber Center for Education and Innovation―(now "shovel ready" and waiting for the Foundation to hit a minimum threshold of funding).
Other speakers and panels will then expand on
the foundation set by Dr. Aiken's keynote, as well as Mr.
Yudhijit Bhattacharjee, award-winning writer and recent
author of The Spy Who Couldn't Spell. The program will
also feature a panel discussion on the impact of cyber on
future social, political, and economic climates,
featuring experts from the field, such as Mr. Robert B.
Dix, Dr. Mike Warner, and Professor Bill Nolte.
Registration is $25 for NCMF members and $50 for guests (includes
complimentary one-year NCMF membership).

Book of the Week and NOT Recommended!
Morley makes outlandish, unsupportable claims as he did in his bio on CIA officer Win Scott in Our Man in Mexico. In this latest work, he suggests James Angleton was having a homosexual liaison with the heterosexual Kim Philby, and the rest of the substance of this book goes downhill from there. This book is listed as a warning...
PROMO FROM THE FLYLEAF: CIA spymaster James Jesus Angleton was one of the most powerful unelected officials in the US government in the mid-20th century, a ghost of American power. From WW II to the Cold War, Angleton operated beyond the view of the public, Congress, and even the president. He unwittingly shared intelligence secrets with Soviet spy Kim Philby, a member of the Cambridge spy ring. He launched mass surveillance by opening the mail of hundreds of thousands of Americans. He abetted a scheme to aid Israel's own nuclear efforts, disregarding US security. He committed perjury and obstructed the JFK assassination investigation. He oversaw a massive spying operation on the antiwar and black nationalist movements and he initiated an obsessive search for communist moles that destroyed careers and nearly destroyed the Agency. In The Ghost, investigative reporter Jefferson Morley tells Angleton's dramatic story, from his friendship with the poet Ezra Pound through the underground gay milieu of mid-century Washington to the Kennedy assassination to the Watergate scandal. From the Agency's MKULTRA mind-control experiments to the wars of the Mideast, Angleton wielded far more power than anyone knew. Yet during his seemingly lawless reign, he also proved himself to be a formidable adversary to our nation's enemies, acquiring a mythic stature within the CIA that continues to this day.
The book should not be bothered with, but if you decide to do so, it may be ordered here.
