Ryan McDonald, the Digital Producer for the Baltimore Business Journal, recently interviewed me for the publication’s latest cybersecurity story, “As cyber attacks multiply, so do insurance policies that cover damages,” where he discusses the pros and cons of purchasing cybersecurity insurance and how to go about it. I thought it was worth sharing here on our blog in case any of you missed it. Below is an excerpt from the story.

If you have ever met or talked to my cofounder Zuly Gonzalez, you will know she never fails to impress. She has been doing a lot of public speaking for our company, she talks to customers, she coordinates sales, pilots, and partnerships, and she keeps us in the news. Zuly Gonzalez has become the face of the Light Point Security.
I have decided to step down as the official CEO of Light Point Security, and name Zuly Gonzalez as the new CEO. Zuly has been performing above and beyond as our COO, so if she keeps doing what she has been, she will be a terrific CEO.

The CyberMaryland initiative published a very nice booklet titled “CyberMaryland: Meet Maryland’s Cyber Warriors” that showcases the many resources, opportunities and companies in Maryland’s cybersecurity ecosystem. The booklet was promoted during last week’s CyberMaryland 2013 Conference and will also be available at the RSA 2014 Conference.
Part of the booklet focused on showcasing Maryland’s hottest cybersecurity companies, and Light Point Security was one of the few companies chosen. We are honored to be mentioned alongside some of Maryland’s most successful cybersecurity companies like Sourcefire (who was acquired by Cisco for $2.7 billion just a few days ago), Tenable and Lockheed Martin.
