Snohomish, Wash. (January 21, 2021) – Cyemptive Technologies, Inc., a provider of preemptive cybersecurity products and technology and winner of the Department of Homeland Security’s national competition for most innovative border security-related solution in the market, will host a webinar on the SolarWinds Cyber Incident: What Really Happened and What Companies can Do to Protect Themselves Against Similar Hacks on Tuesday, January 26, from 10 to 11 am Pacific Standard Time.

This online event will be moderated by author, speaker and ethical hacker Bryan Seely.  It will include an interview and discussion with Cyemptive founder and CEO Rob Pike, followed by an interactive Q&A open to all attendees.

In the webinar, Seely and Pike will cover:

  • What actually occurred during the recently discovered SolarWinds hacking event
  • How you and your organization are impacted if you were using SolarWinds’ assessment and protection tools
  • What you need to do immediately and in the longer term to ensure you are protecting your organization
  • Why the SolarWinds cyber incident isn’t yet over

SolarWinds is an IT management software company based in Austin, Texas, which sells Orion software that provides monitoring and management of an organization’s computer networks.  In the recent attacks, hackers inserted malicious code into Orion software and around 18,000 SolarWinds customers, including government and corporate entities, installed the tainted update onto their systems.  The compromised update has had a sweeping impact, the scale of which keeps growing as new information emerges, the company said. 

Registration for the event is free of charge.  For more information, including how to register, please click here.

Unlike many other cybersecurity companies, neither Cyemptive nor its clients were compromised by the SolarWinds cyber incident.  Cyemptive takes a completely different approach to cybersecurity, by taking a preemptive approach that identifies and eliminates attacks before they ever enter a system and thus preventing compromises.
