Modulo, a leading provider of IT governance, risk and compliance (GRC) solutions, announced today a partnership with Good Harbor, a cyber risk management consulting firm, to deliver Cyber Defense Solutions. As part of this relationship, Richard Clarke is visiting Brazil this week to participate in an extensive agenda of meetings with industry and government executives. Clarke is a leading internationally-recognized expert on Cyber Security and Defense, president of Good Harbor and strategic advisor to Paladin Capital Group.
Mr. Clarke will participate in the 3rd Cyber Security Seminar, organized by the Brazilian Defense Ministry, as Keynote speaker. He will also participate in several workshops with senior executives from Financial, Telecom, Energy and other critical infrastructure companies and with senior representatives of Federal, State and Municipal Government agencies to discuss strategies and solutions for information security and cyber defense.
These workshops and meetings are being hosted by Modulo, a leading provider of IT governance, risk and compliance (GRC) and cyber security solutions. Good Harbor and Modulo have partnered in order to enable an offering that will combine Modulo´s Continuous Monitoring and GRC tool for Cyber Defense with Good Harbor´s depth of expertise in this field in the US and internationally.
This combination will power what the market needs in the increasingly threatening cyber environment in which Government agencies and large companies alike are seeking solutions that will enable them to have real time situational awareness and risk management to respond in a timely manner to threats. Municipal, state and federal command and control requirements in operational, SCADA, IT and physical security management stakeholders will benefit from an automated tool embedded with the knowledge bases that cover the spectrum of threats.
"Richard Clarke's participation sends a strong signal of commitment towards cyber defense and public-private collaboration," said Sergio Thompson-Flores, CEO for Modulo.
