LogicBoost Labs, a startup accelerator focused on promoting the growth of early-stage B2B SaaS startups, announced today an investment into Information Shield, a provider of products and services that help automate the process of building and validating a robust cyber security program.

The investment package includes putting cash on the balance sheet for growth and expert advice in sales, marketing, customer success, and tech development from the in-house team of LogicBoost Labs experts.

Supported by a panel of leading information security experts, Information Shield and its ComplianceShield software solution allow organizations to quickly validate cyber security readiness to customers, regulators, and insurance providers.

"Having spent 15 years working in cybersecurity, I've seen firsthand how difficult it can be for companies and their IT teams to meet compliance mandates. Information Shield dramatically reduces the amount of time it takes to build, roll out, and validate your modern cybersecurity program to meet internal requirements and your client's needs."

Built-in security policy templates enable rapid documentation and key supporting evidence to support external audits, such as SOC II or ISO Certification.

In the past decade, we have seen malware, man-in-the-middle attacks, and data leaks as the important and widespread threats for organizations leveraging on mobile devices. However, another, and possibly the most overlooked but equally dangerous mobile attack on the rise today: the mobile phishing.

RedMonocle Launches New Platform to Assist CISOs in Finding, Funding, and Fixing Cybersecurity Risk Blind Spots

RedMonocle | April 29, 2021

RedMonocle, a leader in SaaS-based cybersecurity risk quantification software, today announced new features to its platform aimed at helping chief information security officers (CISOs) and other security leaders anticipate threats in their Technology Security Stack by helping them find, fund, and fix cybersecurity risk blind spots that leave organizations vulnerable for a breach through their Tech Stack. The acceleration of digital transformation last year brought security into the spotlight as companies scrambled to shift their entire organization to remote operations practically overnight. According to the FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center, cybercrime is up 300% in the last 12 months. As a result, cyber risk blind spots, or unknown areas outside of a company’s field of vision, and other security gaps were created. One out of five cybersecurity leaders surveyed by RedMonocle named blind spots as the No. 1 risk keeping them up at night, followed closely by data loss protection and leadership commitment. “CISOs are feeling extra pressure this year to minimize security risks across the ever-growing Security Stack while maintaining compliance to security standards and fending off daily threats from well-funded attackers,” said Sean McDermott, CEO, and co-founder of RedMonocle. “Every day Security Leaders are playing a highly complex game of chess knowing there are parts of the board they can’t even see. CISOs know they have blind spots hidden in their Security Stack. Now, they want to know what to do next and we want to help them get there.” New features to the RedMonocle platform include the Security Stack Assessment and Always-On Risk Intelligence. Their newly released Security Stack Assessment helps CISOs and cybersecurity leaders find cyber risk blind spots by checking for gaps and overlaps in the current system that could risk compliance, increase costs and leave company and consumer data exposed to malicious activity. This assessment simplifies the way CISOs compare the security of their stack with their selected security standards. Their Always-On Risk Intelligence helps CISOs find blind spots before they become a problem and highlights how to fix them. This update also compares Stack to Standard and continuously tracks gaps in compliance to NIST-800-53 for companies to always be prepared for audits. About RedMonocle RedMonocle Inc. is a SaaS-based risk intelligence software designed to help CISOs and cybersecurity leaders find, fund, and fix their cybersecurity risk blind spots. Founded by Sean McDermott and Chris Schroeder, RedMonocle has spent the past 25 years working with Fortune 500 companies to evaluate, install, customize and optimize the IT Tech Stack.
