Shark Sighting at RSA

Posted by Lynx Technology Partners on Feb 26, 2020 1:41:58 PM

Hosted by Security Current, The Security Shark Tank® during RSA is the premier pitch event of its kind.  It draws over 20 CISOs from across the country in an informative and fun forum to hear from a select group of invited vendors in a rapid-fire, back and forth pitch.

Lynx CEO Gina Mahin was in the shark infested waters yesterday.  What do you have to do to swim with the sharks without being eaten alive?  Above all else, INNOVATION is Critical.  Not only is it a critical differentiator in the tank, but it's really the most important driver for all of us in cybersecurity.  We build it.  They hack it.  We create walls and infrastructure.  They throw AI at 'em.  It's the old, "If you're not innovating, you're dying!"  And while that might be an extreme statement for some industries, well...in cyber, it's (sadly) pretty darn close to reality.

Consumer data privacy protection is a global concern – driving new regulations around the world.  Many U.S. companies are multi-national, and have already begun work to increase security and transparency in meeting the requirements of GDPR.  In general, if a company is in compliance with GDPR (or are on their way in meeting those requirements), then that company is fairly far along in meeting the requirements of CCPA.

The ‘Culture’ of Risk Integration; When Integration Eats GRC for Lunch

Posted by Lynx Technology Partners on Feb 18, 2020 9:20:36 AM

Culture is a funny thing.  We all know we need it…we need more of it…we need it at the center of decision-making…we discuss it in meetings…we’ve even created executive positions for it…BUT can we define it?  Culture is fairly intangible – sorta the, “I know it when I see it” thing.

And we all know – that’s not enough.

Optimizing the CISO’s Gameplan: Governance, Compliance, & Diversity

Posted by Lynx Technology Partners on Nov 4, 2019 10:03:49 AM

Originally written and published by Kevin Howarth of NTSC (NTSC.org)

If a theme emerged in the National Technology Security Coalition’s (NTSC) recent conversation with Aric K. Perminter, Chairman and Founder of Lynx Technology Partners, it’s that CISOs are seeking services and solutions that enable simplification, automation, and integration of strategic, operational, and IT risk management processes and data. As a security visionary and leader, Perminter guided Lynx Technology Partners through its founding in 2009 into a multimillion-dollar information security and risk management company. As chairman of the Board of Directors, Perminter is responsible for formulating and executing long-term strategies and interacting with clients, employees, and other stakeholders. During his 25-year career, Perminter has held a wide variety of leadership positions across key parts of information technology businesses—including serving as Lynx’s CEO through August 2015.
