RICHMOND, Va., Sept. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- To help protect its customers from cybersecurity risks, Mapcom Systems announced today, a collaboration with Dynetics, Inc. — one of the telecommunications industry's leading cybersecurity management firms — that enables Mapcom customers to utilize Dynetics' powerful cyber risk management tool, SelfAssure. Dynetics has over 16 years of experience in information systems security and unique experience conducting threat-faithful, simulated cyber attacks that rigorously test clients' cybersecurity. The condensation of that experience has resulted in the tailored and automated online cyber risk management tool, SelfAssure.
SelfAssure is a cloud-based, cyber risk management tool that assesses the effectiveness of implemented cybersecurity controls and provides specific recommendations for mitigating identified weaknesses. Each recommendation is accompanied by five decisions aids to help clients build a prioritized action plan. In addition, assessed strengths and weakness are mapped to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.
"With over 190 telecommunications customers in 44 states and several international locations, Mapcom recognizes the seriousness of the threats that face all telecommunications providers," said Chuck Flournoy, President of Mapcom Systems. "We have worked closely with Dynetics to ensure our clients have access to the best tools and expertise available so they can analyze their individual risk factors and implement plans to mitigate these potentially disruptive threats. We always try to think proactively about our customers' needs — so it is only natural that we would seek to provide assistance to them in this critical arena."
"Dynetics is passionate about helping clients be successful against cyber threats," said Greg Jackson, Sr. Cybersecurity Advisor at Dynetics. "SelfAssure captures our expertise in an online tool so others can easily benefit. Through our collaboration with Mapcom, Dynetics looks forward to sharing our expertise with a growing number of broadband providers."
Beginning immediately all Mapcom Systems clients active in its Maintenance and Support Program will be granted 12-months access to SelfAssure. This will enable them to initiate the SelfAssure cyber risk assessment process. Mapcom Systems clients are encouraged to contact their Client Care Manager for additional information.
