Tripwire and The Anfield Group Announce Technology Partnership

Tripwire, Inc., a leading global provider of advanced threat, security and compliance solutions, and The Anfield Group, a global security and reliability consulting firm, today announced a technology partnership. The partnership is part of the Tripwire NERC Alliance Network (NAN) program that has been designed to foster collaboration on critical infrastructure compliance and security solutions that help companies efficiently achieve NERC CIP compliance.

According to the Department of Homeland Security, recent cyberattacks employing sophisticated Russian malware have targeted U.S. energy grid operators as well as major electricity providers in Spain, Italy, France, Germany and Poland. As a result of the increasing number of cyberthreats focused on this sector, a recent report on critical infrastructure cybersecurity indicated that 67 percent of critical infrastructure organizations “have had at least one security compromise that led to the loss of confidential information or disruption to operations” in the past year.

“With more than 30 years of combined experience in NERC CIP standards, we stand out as the most experienced consultancy in the industry,” said Chris Humphreys, chief executive officer and president of The Anfield Group. “Our experts have not only played key roles in writing NERC standards, but have also implemented them at utilities. In addition, as NERC-certified lead auditors, we have participated in more than 130 NERC audits of North American utility companies. We are excited to bring our unmatched, hands-on, real-world experience to the NERC Alliance Network.”

The Anfield Group is a trusted, global security and reliability consulting firm focused on critical infrastructure. The Anfield Group works with public and private organizations to architect, implement and maintain the processes, controls, and technologies necessary to improve and sustain a sound cybersecurity posture. The company also provides trusted advice and guidance on how critical infrastructure organizations can demonstrate, automate and stay in compliance with regulatory requirements.

Tripwire® Enterprise combines the power of security configuration management, change auditing, vulnerability management and threat detection with file integrity monitoring (FIM) to deliver continuous compliance and automated audit evidence collection. Together these capabilities enable critical infrastructure providers to significantly reduce the time and resources required to achieve and maintain regulatory compliance and measurably improve cybersecurity.

“The Anfield Group understands the complex security and compliance challenges facing critical infrastructure providers,” said Jeff Simon, director of service solutions for Tripwire. “That’s why we’re excited about our partnership. They have deep experience in delivering custom-designed compliance and security solutions that work in the real world. Anfield’s deep industry expertise is a perfect complement to the technology-focused solution providers in the NAN program.”

All NERC Alliance Network members will be participating in EnergySec’s upcoming 10th Anniversary Security Summit. The event will be held August 18-22, 2014, at the Barton Creek Resort and Spa in Austin, Texas.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
