Veristor’s Jackie Groark Details what Enterprises Need to do Left and Right of the Next Cybersecurity “Boom”

ATLANTA April 3, 2018 – Veristor Systems, Inc., a leading provider of transformative business technology solutions, today announced that Jackie Groark, Veristor’s Director of Security/CISO will be a featured presenter at the Alabama Cyber NOW Conference on April 12. Groark’s presentation, “Left and Right of Boom: Preparation and Response for the Dynamic Cybersecurity Threat,” will provide practical, real-world tips for organizations looking to ensure that they are ready to face today’s ever-increasing cybersecurity threats.

“In this world of ever evolving threats and threat actors, we not only need to be prepared to respond, but we must react and respond accurately,” said Groark. “A solid approach must not only consider how to anticipate new vulnerabilities but how to also quickly isolate and remediate threats when they penetrate our defenses. During Alabama Cyber NOW, I will discuss key steps to take both right and left of boom. As a result, you will discover new ways to further minimize risk and improve your security posture.”

Groark, a security-industry expert, joined Veristor in 2017 following her career with Southern Company where she served in various leadership roles for both infrastructure and application teams providing critical business solutions across the enterprise. For five years, she served as the Southern Company’s IT Security Director, Threat Management & Intelligence. During her time with Southern Company, Groark directed the ground-up development of a Security Operations Center (SOC) that encompasses threat monitoring, incident response, content development and threat intelligence. She also helped design an Insider Threat Program; building and providing leadership for the Insider Threat Fusion Center. In addition, she managed the implementation and support of the underlying infrastructure and tools that supported both the SOC and the Insider Threat Program.
