Comcast’s Assets at Risk Program, powered by Bay Dynamics’ Risk Fabric Cyber Risk Analytics platform, is an innovative risk based asset-centric program that protects high-value assets (data, systems, and applications) from threats and vulnerabilities. The program enables Comcast to measure, communicate and reduce cyber risk. It engages Line-of-Business application owners in an innovative way to provide asset value and business context which is used for prioritized investigation and remediation. By involving the right users, understanding the assets at risk, and focusing on the metrics that matter, the program decentralizes risk from the security organization and effectively communicates cyber risk to key stakeholders.

MAST Cybersecurity Services is a new initiative for the University of Massachusetts (UMass). The initiative started in May 2015, when the UMass CISO was approached by The Boston Consortium with a request to provide Cybersecurity Services to under-resourced academic institutions in New England. Key representatives of the UMass President’s Office met with the management team from The Boston Consortium to discuss how UMass could assist consortium members with the design, implementation and operations of their cybersecurity programs. After a detailed discussion and review of the key UMass capabilities, a pilot program was initiated. The pilot program has since expanded to a fully managed offering under MAST Cybersecurity Services.
