Posted by Lynx Technology Partners on Feb 16, 2021 11:07:43 AM

Lynx is passionate about helping clients understand and reduce risks they may face, including potential hazards associated with competency gaps. Lynx trusts that a standardized approach improves their clients’ hiring, training, and succession processes as well as enables employees to better understand what capabilities are needed for desired positions and upskill accordingly.

A Ceasefire in the War Between IT and Security Operations

Posted by Lynx Technology Partners on Dec 7, 2020 3:48:45 PM

Friction has existed between IT departments and Security Operations for years. If turf wars and business silos are not the cause, the lack of collaboration and communication will often lead to disharmony between the two. The left hand should know what the right hand is doing and vice versa, but that can only happen if the problems between them are acknowledged and addressed. Check out our recent conversation where Lynx CEO Gina Mahin and Steven Bay, Director of Security Operations and Threat Intelligence at Security On-Demand, discuss how Integrated Risk Management can bring a ceasefire to this friction and turn these teams into partners working toward the common goal of protecting the business.

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.
