LONG BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Platinum Edge, LLC is pleased to announce that the company has rolled out new services to help cybersecurity companies not only expand the use of scrum when developing technologies, but more importantly use scrum to implement structured responses to cyber-attacks.
Studies indicate that over 80 percent of organizations use agile techniques when developing software and at least 85 percent of agile projects use scrum to frame those projects. However, a very small number of cybersecurity companies utilize scrum to mitigate risks and respond to attacks, which limits their effectiveness.
“We have a boil the ocean mentality in that there are a ton of threats and organizations are trying to go after all of them simultaneously,” stated former Air Force cryptographic specialist Mark C. Layton, CEO of Platinum Edge and author of Agile Project Management for Dummies and Scrum for Dummies. He went on to add: “It’s better to take a disciplined approach and focus on the right thing than efficiently spread your resources so thin you are effective at nothing.”
Scrum’s forced inspect and adapt model at both the product and process level forces prioritization, highlights impediments, and allows cybersecurity organizations to be more effective and efficient at the same time.
Platinum Edge is on a mission to modernize the cybersecurity industry by helping organizations take an empirical, quantitative approach to risk mitigation as opposed to the conventional shiny object approach.
