Catbird Networks announced the joint release of the first-annual 2017 TAG Cyber Security Annual -- Practical Handbook and Reference Guide for the Working Cyber Security Professional. Catbird is part of an industry collective of 48 of the nation’s foremost cyber security vendors participating in the report, which was published by The Amoroso Group (TAG Cyber) following in-depth industry research and analysis.
“With this report, we’ve issued a rallying cry to the rest of the industry,” said David Keasey, CEO of Catbird. “Catbird is thrilled to be part of the group that is driving the conversation on cyber security forward with a focus on bold, innovative solutions. Our pioneering work with software-based security technologies deployed within virtual infrastructures is a key component of this innovative new way of protecting our infrastructure from cyber threats.”
The report details a new urgency for how America’s commercial, financial and utility sectors respond to escalating and increasingly complex cyber attacks. It includes a comprehensive analysis of the cyber security industry with specific insights from C-level executives and thought leaders. Dr. Edward G. Amoroso, former chief security officer of AT&T and author of six books on cyber security, spearheaded writing and researching the report.
“Catbird has been an invaluable partner in forming this collective and compiling this report,” said Amoroso, CEO and lead analyst of TAG Cyber. “With their expertise in virtual data center and hybrid cloud security software, the insight Catbird provides has been a crucial component in forming the solutions and practical guidelines we’ve developed.”
The 2017 TAG Cyber Security Annual has been written for information security and technology professionals in all industries with a special focus on U.S. infrastructure companies, including energy, telecommunications, manufacturing, health care and utilities.
The handbook is centered around a revolutionary new approach to cyber security that calls on tech leaders of the largest and most important American enterprises to explode existing infrastructure to disperse data across multiple platforms, offload sensitive information into secure cloud-based solutions and reload systems, policies and personnel to better position them to effectively defend against cyber-attacks that are not only likely, but occurring at an increasing rate.
