Good Harbor to Advise Cobalt on Cyber Security for its GigNet Broadband Network in the Mexican Caribbean
Cobalt Holdings, Inc. said it has retained Good Harbor Security Risk Management, LLC, which offers advisory services in the areas of cyber and physical security risk management, to help develop advanced security services for its customers in Mexico. Engaging the Washington, D.C. company will further reinforce Cobalt’s commitment to cyber security for its 180-kilometer fiber-optic GigNet network from Cancun to Tulum serving the hospitality, enterprise and mobile carrier markets. Good Harbor is headed by Chairman & CEO Richard A. Clarke, who served three consecutive U.S. Presidents through ten continuous years as a White House official, including as Special Advisor to the President for Cyberspace, Special Assistant to the President for Global Affairs, and National Coordinator for Security and Counter-terrorism.
Mr. Clarke is the author of eight books, including the national number one best-seller Against All Enemies and Cyber War: The Next Threat to National Security and What to Do About It. He taught at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on national security, counter-terrorism, and cyber security.
Specifically, Good Harbor will assess cyber and physical security threats to GigNet’s network, for which security has already been a priority, and develop decision-making processes to mitigate risks. It will then help Cobalt align resources to risk, establish a focused security program, and prepare for potential security incidents.
