Securonix Joins the Institute for Critical Infrastructure Technology

U.S. Government Think Tank Welcomes Global Cybersecurity Innovator

LOS ANGELES, CA and WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwired) -- 08/12/15 -- Reinforcing its role as a thought leader and innovator in the cybersecurity arena, Securonix today announced that the Institute for Critical Infrastructure Technology has formally welcomed the company to the ICIT Fellows Program. Securonix, a leader in advanced behavior analytics (BA), adds to the Institute's growing expertise in preventative cybersecurity technologies and will be represented by Fellows Dr. Igor Baikalov, ICIT Fellow - Chief Scientist, Securonix; John Menkart, ICIT Fellow - VP Federal, Securonix; and Stewart Draper, ICIT Fellow - Director of Insider Threat Programs, Securonix.

In the aftermath of the OPM breach, Securonix has contributed to several key ICIT advisory initiatives, including providing expertise to its latest brief "Handing Over the Keys to the Castle: OPM Demonstrated that Antiquated Security Practices Harm National Security." Its fellows have also been involved in ICIT briefings with Senate and House of Representative members discussing how behavioral security analytics technologies can play a crucial role in protecting federal agencies, healthcare organizations and other critical infrastructure sector stakeholders. Securonix as an industry leader is making meaningful contributions to the legislative community that could see wide spread behavioral requirements put in place and helping government partners bridge the gap with public Fortune 50 companies who have already heavily invested in this technology.

Next month, Securonix will speak at an ICIT Security Briefing and Clinic to be held at the U.S. Senate, speaking on predictive vs. reactive cyber technologies and how BA can be used for early prediction of insider threats.

"Securonix is proud to join a select group of thought leaders and innovators in cyber security represented by ICIT Fellows," commented Baikalov. "As an acknowledged leader in Security Analytics, Securonix welcomes the opportunity to share our expertise and help shape technology legislation to secure critical infrastructure."

"Behavioral Analytics is a key component to a strong multi-layered security strategy," said ICIT Co-Founder and Sr. Fellow Parham Eftekhari. "As an ICIT Fellow, the expertise Securonix is bringing to legislative and federal agencies is paramount to the Institute's mission of providing cutting edge, objective research to support our nation's critical infrastructure sectors."
