Enterprise Security Magazine | Wednesday, September 15, 2021

Leading SaaS-based Risk Intelligence software launches weekly broadcasts providing actionable cybersecurity tips for business leaders.

FREMONT, CA: RedMonocle, a market leader in SaaS-based cybersecurity risk quantification tools, debuts Cybersecurity After Dark, a weekly webcast. Cybersecurity After Dark illuminates the critical business dialogue required for the next generation of cybersecurity innovation.

Sean McDermott, founder and CEO of RedMonocle, and Dan Williams, a cybersecurity expert, has co-hosted the show. They have a combined 40 years of experience in cybersecurity and information technology operations. McDermott and Williams delve into fundamental cybersecurity concerns and recent cyberattacks, offering security professionals practical advice and industry-leading best practices.

“Cybersecurity After Darks mission is to provide actionable risk intelligence and discourse on the next generation of cybersecurity for government and enterprises,” says McDermott. “Security Leaders are facing the daunting task of ever-increasing threats. Their success in thwarting those attacks relies on their ability to communicate that risk to other business leaders. Dan and I present insights to close that gap and emphasize the importance of cybersecurity in the context of the business, not just in IT. We want to help fast track security funding and increase momentum against bad actors.”

Cybercrime victims reported a loss of over $4.2 billion in 2021, according to the FBI's 2020 Internet Crime Report. Cybersecurity After Dark provides concrete suggestions to assist security leaders in identifying cyber risk blindspots and remaining watchful to safeguard their organizations’ data.

“Sean offers a unique C-suite perspective on cybersecurity issues while I drill down into the tactical strategies Security Leaders can take to improve,” says Williams. “Together, we make a compelling case for how to build a strong cybersecurity strategy and get ahead of the next attack.”
