Whew. Who’s still recovering from RSAC 2018? GRIMM has been making appearances at the annual conference since launching in 2012. However, this was the inaugural visit for SCYTHE, GRIMM’s sister product company which launched last October, and the ICS Village, a non-profit the GRIMM and SCYTHE leadership helped launch this spring. And what a splash it was! In case you missed it, we were busy! Here’s a recap:
The void in the cybersecurity workforce is compounding the level of risk faced by enterprises. The global shortage of skilled security workers could reach 1.8 million in the next five years according to the Center for Cyber Safety and Education. Contrast this with plans to boost security teams hiring by at least 15 percent in the same time frame - the numbers don’t add up. This is exacerbated by the increasing volume, variety and veracity of widespread cyberattacks like WannaCry, NotPetya, Locky, and other blockbuster ransomware.
When I started GRIMM, I had a vision to tackle the greatest cybersecurity challenges that face our clients, industry and the greater business and government communities. Five years later, we have grown into a dynamic and passionate team who strives to make a better, more secure world through the independent research and the services we provide to clients. GRIMM takes deep pride in its dedication to education, innovation and technical problem solving.
