DALLAS, TX - 19 December 2017 -
@RISK Technologies, Inc. (@RISK) today announced its acceptance as an Associate Member of the California Bankers Association (CBA).
“@RISK Technologies will enhance CBA members’ cybersecurity posture, by deploying 'military grade' cyber tools to create a more advanced cyber protection program,” said Sean O’Brien, @RISK Technologies CEO, and former Army Ranger. “We bring a counterterrorism approach to cyber and treat the cyber attacker as we would treat any enemy in traditional combat. We apply lessons and tradecraft learned in the Global War on Terror to safeguard critical customer financial information and head off any incidents before a full breach in security can occur.”
Using artificial intelligence powered by IBM’s Watson to create “Network Consensus,” @RISK performs pre-incident forensic analysis on real-time threats and leverages the technology to enhance incident forecasting, reduce costs and ensure business continuity.
@RISK’s solution allows financial institutions to avoid costly post-event forensics should a breach occur, and augments current IT staffing through significant automation capabilities. The platform also includes an automated version of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council’s (FFIEC) Cyber Assessment Tool (CAT), dramatically improving accuracy and reducing the time needed to complete FFIEC requirements, as well as a Balanced ScoreCard measurement tool for overall cybersecurity.
The platform’s automated digital forensic investigation provides a window into what’s happening on the dark web, analysis of potential avenues of attack, and perimeter threat applications that collect and report three years of threat information from across the globe. Phases of the @RISK solution include deterrence; use of advanced analytics to delay, impede or halt the initial threat; deploying barriers to break down the will of the threat; system stabilization; and maintenance.
@RISK’s team includes former military leaders with extensive experience supporting the U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. intelligence agencies, partnered with technical experts and former IBM employees who understand and have been at the forefront of cybersecurity advancements for decades.
@RISK’s no-cost operational assessment tool and Balanced ScoreCard offered through their platform create a common-sense fusion of bank operations with compliance and risk management. Currently, @RISK offers a 30-day No Cost Cybersecurity Risk Assessment to prove its value to CBA members. Early Bird pricing will be provided to the first 25 CBA members that commit to the @RISK Assessment. For more information about @RISK Technologies, Inc., contact @RISK today.
