4/28/2016

Infocyte, a provider of cybersecurity hunt technology, announced that CEO and Co-founder Chris Gerritz will be presenting the topic “Assessing Risk in a Breached World” at today’s  Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) & InfraGard Joint Meeting in Tampa Bay.

In the talk, Gerritz presents the problem of persistent compromises by global hacking organizations and how to combat them.  In particular, Gerritz discusses the shortfalls of today’s network security risk assessments, which typically focus on compliance and vulnerabilities, and presents education on the latest malware “hunt” practices and compromise assessment services which can be used to answer more critical questions such as “Are you hacked right now?” The popular presentation has been delivered at a string of speaking events to regional conferences throughout the country, including most recently the Risk Management Association of Texas annual conference in Dallas, Texas.

Cybersecurity represents one of the most complex risks that organizations have to manage. With persistent compromises going undetected for months, sometimes years, before being discovered,” stated Chris Gerritz, Co-founder and CEO, Infocyte. “It’s important that organizations adopt strategies to discover compromises and security breaches that bypass traditional detection technology (i.e. Anti-virus software).
