SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI) has enlisted the help of a consulting firm Christopher Krebs, former director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and a two-time Wash100 awardee, established with Alex Stamos, former chief security officer at Facebook (Nasdaq: FB), to support the software vendor’s intrusion review process, Reuters reported Friday.
According to the Krebs Stamos Group‘s website, the newly formed company aims to help clients understand cyber threats and address misinformation campaigns.
“There have been successful leaders that embrace cybersecurity but also the community and engagement, and they tend to not just survive in this environment, but thrive,” Krebs was quoted as saying by Reuters.
“We want to help executives become those leaders.”
In mid-December, CISA released an emergency directive directing all federal civilian agencies to mitigate a compromise in SolarWinds’ Orion Network Management products being exploited by threat actors allegedly linked to the Russian government.
