"Businesses and communities worldwide are facing increasingly formidable and complex threats to keeping their information secure," said Brandt. "Every threat begins with a person, and every attack on a business or other high-value target begins with the prospect of creating advantage through theft of an asset or degradation of a target. These threats can no longer be addressed strictly by installing the latest software or tools, which is why I am so excited to bring Cybis to market to address this growing threat through advanced means currently not applied beyond the public sector."
Cybis is a partnership between Convergint Technologies, the global leader in service-based systems integration, and Orbis Operations, a customized intelligence and cyber security solutions provider. "We are excited to announce the addition of Jud Brandt as the leader of our cyber security team of former nation state protectors," said President and CEO of Convergint Technologies, Ken Lochiatto. "Jud's proven leadership skills will guide our Cybis team as they expand their tailored cyber security solutions throughout the world."
Brandt, 50-years-old, brings to Cybis an extensive set of technology leadership experiences. He most recently served as Chief Technology Officer for Bridgewater Associates, the world's largest hedge fund. His previous roles include Vice President, Business Consulting for Oracle; Managing Director, Technology Strategy and Architecture for Accenture; divisional CIO and eBusiness leader for Delta Air Lines; and Partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers. He resides in McLean, VA and Darien, GA.
Cybis is an agency-grade security intelligence group addressing "special matters" for entities seeking to operate with a deeper understanding of the evolving threats within their environment. Founded in 2016, Cybis consultants are an integrated team of former CIA, NSA, and commercial cyber experts with decades of real-world experience that have conducted cyber operations on behalf of the U.S. Government against our nation's most advanced adversaries.
