With Hackers Attacking US Voting Systems BlackRidge Offers Insight for Cyber Defense.

Reno, NV – Tuesday October 4, 2016 – BlackRidge Technology is pleased to announce its support of the Cyber Security Symposium Conference at University of North Carolina at Charlotte. This year’s conference will take place on Wednesday, October 5, 2016 from 8:15 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. at the University Cone Center.

“Businesses, organizations and individuals are dependent upon computers and computer networks to perform critical work in an ever-increasing technology-driven economy,” said Bill Chu, Ph.D., Professor, College of Computing and Informatics UNC Charlotte. “We are pleased to have cyber security industry leaders like BlackRidge Technology as part of this year’s conference.”

BlackRidge Technology provides identity-based network cyber defense that stops cyber-attacks and protects against insider threats at the earliest possible time, on the first packet before network sessions are established. This technology provides the equivalent of secure caller ID for the network that allows only identified and authorized users or devices access to enterprise and cloud systems.

“We are delighted to sponsor this symposium, which brings together world-class leaders in cyber security to UNC Charlotte,” said Mike Miracle, SVP of Marketing and Strategy at BlackRidge Technology. “Charlotte is a significant data center hub and we are pleased to be collaborating with the Data Science Initiative at UNC Charlotte on new cyber security solutions for their large data-intensive corporate partners.”
