AlertEnterprise Appoints Mark Weatherford, Former DHS Deputy Under-Secretary for Cybersecurity, to Advisory Board

AlertEnterprise Inc., the Silicon Valley-based leader in cybersecurity and critical infrastructure protection software, today announced that Mark Weatherford, Principal at the Chertoff Group and former top cybersecurity official at the Department of Homeland Security, has joined the AlertEnterprise Advisory Board. Weatherford, who is scheduled to present four sessions at the RSA Conference in San Francisco on various cybersecurity topics, is a highly regarded national expert. AlertEnterprise is demonstrating its Critical Infrastructure Protection solutions at the RSA Conference Feb. 24-27 at Booth #339.

“Recent incidents like the widely publicized Target data breach and the Metcalf electrical substation attacks, bring renewed public and congressional calls for action on cybersecurity and critical -infrastructure protection,” said Jasvir Gill, Founder and CEO of AlertEnterprise. Gill adds that, “Mark’s experience as the former CSO at the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), brings us significant depth in one of our strongest markets. AlertEnterprise is the only security software company that addresses these complex threats with a single unified solution. Mark’s expertise in cybersecurity is well aligned with our proven solutions for real-time situational intelligence and fast, informed action.”

“It is clear from recent incidents that intruders are leveraging non-traditional attack vectors that extend outside of IT,” said Mark Weatherford. He adds, “I have been following the rise of AlertEnterprise with great interest and strongly support their vision that security needs to be addressed holistically across IT, OT (Operational Technology) and physical access for effective response to serious security challenges including Insider Threat and protecting the Internet of Things.”
