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, cyber, it's (sadly) pretty darn close to reality.

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.
