Interactive Cloud-Based Sandbox Enables Controlled Solutions Testing, Cybersecurity Program Build and Optimization, and Simulated Crisis and Adversarial Practice

Washington, D.C – June 7, 2022 – MorganFranklin Consulting, a leading finance, technology, and cybersecurity advisory and management firm that specializes in solving complex transformational challenges for its clients, today announced its new Cybersecurity Innovation Center (CIC). The custom cloud-based lab environment provides clients with key cybersecurity insights, including how security tools will function within their systems, how ransomware and adversarial attacks may be attempted in their environment, and how remediation of new vulnerabilities can be achieved.

“As ever-increasing and more sophisticated attacks combine with rapid digital transformation, cybersecurity preparation has never been more challenging or more important,” said John Fung, a director in MorganFranklin’s cybersecurity operations practice area. “The MorganFranklin Cybersecurity Innovation Center is a powerful new way to help our clients answer essential questions that improve their security operations, upskill their teams, and address their most pressing threats.”

With MorganFranklin’s CIC and team of cybersecurity experts, clients will gain key advice and program analysis capabilities before deployment, without the exorbitant cost of building such a lab themselves. By replicating their live systems, organizations can also “war-game” against potential attacks and troubleshoot countermeasures.

MorganFranklin Cybersecurity Innovation Center Benefits
The MorganFranklin CIC offers numerous benefits for security leaders and their teams whether optimizing cybersecurity systems or improving their defenses.

  • Answer Critical Cybersecurity Program Questions: The CIC helps stakeholders answer critical questions about cybersecurity program functionality, how the latest vulnerabilities and attack vectors may impact their security, and more within a safe environment.
  • Utilize a Custom Built and Safe Environment: Developed as infrastructure-as-code, the CIC is fully customizable and can be torn down to protect proprietary data. The public-facing and interactive sandbox can also show how simulated attacks unfold, determine their intent, and help guide what organizations should do next to better mitigate risk.
  • Evaluate Solutions in a Vendor Agnostic Environment: MorganFranklin partners with numerous solutions providers. This enables the company to produce an unbiased analysis of how security tools perform alone and together. Clients can also use the CIC to evaluate solutions spend and optimize their program for the best value.
  • Practice Offensive and Defensive Approaches: As part of its MSSP offering, MorganFranklin will also use the CIC to generate ongoing threat intelligence and further strengthen its offensive and defensive approaches to help clients mitigate risk against ransomware, nation-state, and other attacks.
