LBMC Security & Risk Services, a division of Lattimore Black Morgan & Cain, PC, earned first place in the Symantec Nashville Cyber Readiness Challenge held at the Franklin Marriott Cool Springs in Franklin, Tn. LBMC Security & Risk Services, one of LBMC’s fastest growing service lines, provides a wide range of services including penetration testing, web application assessments and compliance services to numerous domestic and international companies and government entities.
The Symantec Cyber Readiness Challenge is a competition designed to put participants in the hacker's shoes to understand their targets, technology and thought processes so they can ultimately better protect their company or clients.
“We are extremely proud of our LBMC team and this is just one more example of our continuing efforts to stay on the offensive understanding the threat landscape and providing security solutions in this constantly changing environment. Not only did one of our professionals take first place, members of the LBMC Security & Risk Services team took three of the top five spots,” said Thomas Lewis, partner-in-charge of LBMC Security & Risk Services. “The experience and expertise of the LBMC Security & Risk Services team is unmatched in our local market and I believe this event demonstrates some of the best talent in the business in any geography.”
The competition took the form of a 'capture the flag' style cyber-attack simulation, with players competing against each other in a race to discover hidden vulnerabilities within the testing environment.
The LBMC participants were Lucas Gates, Stewart Fey and Brooke Mullican.
