Covid-19 forced organizations and CISOs to restructure basically overnight. Rapid changes in networks and working practices means increased attack surfaces and security gaps. Now we are moving to the ‘new normal’ as organizations begin to lift restrictions. The pandemic may be easing but don’t expect the increased attacks that it initiated to end any time soon.
We at Lynx acknowledge the pain and heartbreak, the frustration and exhaustion overwhelming some of our staff members, customers, partners and friends. And more broadly, communities of color across America.
We hope you are staying safe during this unusual time. With COVID-19 effecting everyone around the world, we wanted to share some resourceful links that may help you during this time. Below are links from multiple cyber and risk sources in order to help you during this virus lock down.
LYNX Technology Partners is fortunate to work with industry thought-leaders from around the globe. We have learned a great deal from conversations with these leaders – these conversations continue to inform our day-to-day business, and the creation of industry solutions. We thought YOU might like to ‘eavesdrop’ on some of these fascinating conversations.
Just as you’ve begun to update and reevaluate operational structure in support of growing threats of all sorts, along comes….Coronavirus - as if we needed a reminder that the world is full of ‘threats’.

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.
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.

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.
