BrightPoint Security Selected to Present at NH-ISAC 2015 Fall Conference

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 11, 2015) - BrightPoint Security™, a leading Threat Intelligence Platform provider for automation, curation and sharing of threat intelligence to fight cyber threats, today announced it has been selected to present at the NH-ISAC 2015 Fall Conference, taking place Nov. 11-13 at the Green Valley Ranch in Henderson, Nev.

Company CTO and Senior Vice President of Engineering Rich Reybok will present on "Strengthening the Weakest Link for Your Healthcare Ecosystem" on Nov. 13 at 8:15 am PST. Most healthcare companies are focused on the security of their perimeters, networks and endpoints, and forget that their ecosystem partners pose the same, if not greater, risk to their IT infrastructure. The 2013 Target breach was an example of a third party being the weakest link in security. In the case of Target, a trusted business partner was authorized to use the retailer's external billing system, and its access credentials were stolen in a phishing attack.

Healthcare organizations need to realize that their virtual perimeter is greater than their walls, and in fact extends into and around their third party ecosystem partners. In this session, BrightPoint's Reybok will cover how and why third party business partners can be better protected and ensure improved visibility; and describe the value healthcare organizations can receive from sharing threat data, including explaining how they can gain value from active threat intelligence sharing.

The company will also demonstrate its Threat Intelligence Command Platform delivering immediate predictive insight and prescriptive response to protect healthcare organizations from cyber attacks. BrightPoint enables secure, anonymous and enriched threat intelligence sharing pinpointing the most critical existing threats, and provides early-warnings of emerging attacks in the enterprise digital ecosystems, supply chains, affiliates and infrastructures.

It is the tactical and operational arm advancing national healthcare and public health critical infrastructure resilience -- all hazards (cyber and physical) security intelligence situational awareness analysis and reporting, secure trusted two-way information sharing, countermeasure solutions, incident response, leading practice and education.
