Ernst & Young, Los Alamos Make New Cybersecurity Tools Available to Private Sector

A strategic alliance between Ernst & Young (EY) and Los Alamos National Laboratory will allow EY to offer Los Alamos’ unique behavioral analysis cybersecurity tools to respond and quickly counter attacks.

The alliance will allow delivery of some of the most advanced behavioral cybersecurity tools available to the commercial market.

“Cybersecurity attacks are ever more frequent and more sophisticated, and they destroy the trust needed to conduct business,” said Los Alamos National Laboratory Chief Technology Officer  Duncan McBranch. “Every organization must improve its ability to detect and stop attacks as they occur, and before secure data is compromised. This unique relationship with EY will improve our ability to develop and test adaptive cybersecurity technologies across both industry and government networks.  Defensive cybersecurity is an area that requires strong public-private partnerships to shift the balance.”

An announcement stated, “The alliance comes at a watershed moment when increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks are inflicting significant economic, social and even political damage to US organizations. The tools developed by Los Alamos and delivered to the private sector exclusively by Ernst & Young LLP can help counter these threats by detecting them before they do deep and lasting damage.

“We are very excited to be working with Los Alamos as part of our overall mission to transition their heritage of national cybersecurity and innovation to the private sector, and arming our clients with the most advanced tools and resources to combat cyber-threats, said EY Americas Advisory Vice Chair Bob Patton,. This collaborative approach is reflective of our global strategy to help organizations manage cybersecurity better and doing our part to build a better working world.”
