Cicayda Announces Security Veteran Michael Tanji as Cyber Security Strategist

Tanji is a 30-year veteran of the security and intelligence fields. He started his career in the Army, and left federal service as a division chief at the Defense Intelligence Agency. He has worked on issues as diverse as communications intelligence, network security, digital media exploitation, cyber threat intelligence, indications and warning, and information warfare. He managed the DOD's cyber threat intelligence warning system and worked on projects for the National Intelligence Council, National Security Council and NATO. He was a co-founder of Carbon Black. 

Tanji commented, "My approach to cyber security emphasizes the practical and economical.  Much of the expense associated security is a result of the military and law-enforcement-based approaches that are used. There is a time and place for those models, but they are neither mandatory nor essential to a good defense or an effective incident response. If there is a breach, tools like Cicayda's Fermata and Reprise can assist with legal requirements and analysis to reduce legal exposure and cost. Cicayda helps get clients quickly back to business, and reduce the cost of legal activities that may occur as a result of a breach."
