NEW YORK, April 20, 2023 – Dataminr, one of the world’s leading AI businesses, today announced the launch of the Cyber-Physical A2I Partner Coalition at the upcoming RSA Conference. This new strategic partnership among leading cybersecurity organizations will address the growing challenges corporations face at the intersection of cyber and physical security.
“In today’s world, enterprises are challenged with an exponentially increasing threat landscape that has blurred the lines between cyber and physical risk,” said Ted Bailey, Founder and CEO of Dataminr. “Both the chief information security officer (CISO) and chief security officer (CSO) now face a growing number of cyber-physical threats—ranging from physical threats to IT/OT/IOT infrastructure and disruptions caused by geopolitical instability to cyber attacks with physical world consequences. This new coalition of leading cyber technology companies enables corporations to respond to incidents faster and bolster enterprise resilience.”
“Cyber-physical convergence is an existential threat that is only accelerating,” said Dave DeWalt, Chair of Dataminr’s Corporate Advisory Board. “Events in the cyber world are now traversing to the physical world (and vice versa) at an alarming rate, which can lead to serious ramifications. The Cyber-Physical A2I Partner Coalition will speed time and increase accuracy for response to cyber-physical threats by equipping security leaders with the transformative potential of AI to navigate the converged risk landscape.”
The Dataminr Cyber-Physical A2I Partner Coalition shares a commitment to developing and sharing best practices that enable companies to leverage advances in artificial intelligence to accelerate their readiness to face converged cyber-physical threats. Through development of new joint solutions and product integrations, the consortium of partners will enable CISOs and CSOs to most effectively plan for, discover and respond to converged cyber-physical threats in real time. Launch partners include Claroty, Mandiant, NightDragon, Optiv and ServiceNow. In the coming months, this coalition will expand to include additional leaders in the cybersecurity industry.
"We continue to see the convergence of cyber and physical threats, and the severe and immediate impact these threats have on companies and governments," said Marshall Heilman, Global Chief Technology Officer, Mandiant. "As a mission focused company, we have always been willing to collaborate with alliance partners, like Dataminr, on joint solutions to better protect our customers. I am confident in our ability to improve resilience from, and reduce the risk of, cyber-physical attacks as we build future solutions that combine Mandiant's Incident Response services and Cyber Threat Intelligence with Dataminr and the rest of the coalition’s capabilities."
“At Optiv, we offer solutions that bolster the enterprise resilience of the corporations we work with by partnering with technology innovators,” said Rocky DeStefano, CTO of Optiv. “We are thrilled to be a part of this coalition to develop new solutions for cyber-physical resilience that enable the CISO and CSO to collaborate and leverage best-in-class AI capabilities to navigate today’s ever-changing risk landscape.”
“With Claroty’s focus on securing the cyber-physical systems across the Extended Internet of Things (XIoT)—from industrial control systems, to medical devices, to building management systems, and more—joining this coalition is a natural fit for us,” said Yaniv Vardi, CEO of Claroty. “We look forward to developing solutions that combine Dataminr’s AI capabilities with our unmatched visibility, protection, and threat detection for the XIoT to help organizations achieve cyber and operational resilience.”
“The ServiceNow platform is a powerful ally in managing the growing risk of cyber-physical attacks for enterprises,” said Lou Fiorello, VP & GM of Security Products at ServiceNow. “The Now Platform’s power lies in the ability to unify the actionable intelligence from Dataminr with processes and people into operational workflows—to not only respond to cyber-physical threats, but also proactively mitigate them and secure critical assets to ensure business continuity for our customers.”
