Exostar to Discuss Supply Chain Cybersecurity Risk Management at Critical Manufacturing Sector Security Conference 2015

Vijay Takanti Will Describe Best Practices for Protecting Critical Infrastructure through Continuous Risk Assessment and Mitigation

HERNDON, VA, November 10, 2015 – Exostar, whose cloud-based solutions help companies in aerospace and defense, life sciences, and healthcare mitigate risk and solve their identity and access challenges, today announced its participation in the 6th annual Critical Manufacturing Sector Security ConferenceVijay Takanti, Exostar’s Vice President of Security and Collaboration Solutions, will speak about supply chain cybersecurity risk management at the event, which will be held on November 17th in Arlington, VA.

With the volume and complexity of cyber threats on the rise, cybersecurity has become a top priority.  Increased collaboration and use of shared infrastructure across the extended, multi-tiered value chain of public/private buyers, suppliers, partners, and other third-parties raises the vulnerability to cyber-based attacks.  The severity and impact of recent security breaches demonstrates the need for a stronger cybersecurity posture.

Takanti will describe the latest advances and best practices in comprehensive risk management solutions, with a focus on supply chain cybersecurity.  He will explain how organizations can continuously identify vulnerabilities in real-time and over time throughout their value chains.  This proactive approach allows organizations to better monitor, measure, assess, and mitigate cybersecurity risk so they can more effectively protect themselves and critical resources from compromise.

Critical Manufacturing Sector Security Conference 2015, organized by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), will feature expert-led presentations addressing critical infrastructure physical and cyber security and resilience issues.  Former DHS Secretary Tom Ridge will deliver the keynote address to over 150 attendees from the public and private sectors, including the intelligence community.
