Myriad Supply Announces Election Day as Company-Wide Holiday

New York, NY, October 26, 2018 – Myriad Supply, a cybersecurity consultancy and technology integrator, announced today its new “Myriad Votes!” initiative. This initiative provides everyone in the company with a half-day or full-day off to vote this November 6th, and makes Election Day an annual company holiday for all Myriad employees starting in 2019.

“We believe voting is both a privilege and a responsibility,” said Andrew Fisher, Myriad’s Founder and CEO. “Employees should be able to cast their ballot without worrying about missing work. It’s not about who you vote for, but the fact you have the ability, time and support you need to participate.”

Myriad’s decision came about in response to recent news that voting in the United States is at historic lows. The 2014 midterm elections saw just 33% of the voting age population vote, the lowest participation rate since World War II. The 2016 presidential election had participation of 55%, the lowest since the 1996 presidential election.

“Myriad’s commitment is to completely clear our employee’s schedules on Election Day, so each individual can find the time that works best for them to participate,” said Fisher.

The “Myriad Votes!” initiative is consistent with Myriad’s other people-first initiatives like unlimited paid time off and paid parental leave. Myriad has continued to invest in fostering an equitable environment, and empowering employees to use their voice and drive meaningful change, both internally and externally. Myriad’s leadership looks forward to continuing to provide new, tangible opportunities for employees to influence the world around them in a positive way.

Agile Project Management for Cybersecurity

In our recent webinar, “Agile Project Management for Cybersecurity,” Myriad’s PMP and CSM-certified project manager Emma Sally presented an overview of agile project planning, its benefits and effects, terminology, how it compares to traditional practices, and how an IT department can implement this methodology today.

Sally starts by providing a comparison of project management styles teams typically use: waterfall, Scrum, Kanban, and “other,” as unique project management styles can be created by handpicking aspects of each methodology based upon a team’s needs. Afterwards, Sally explains the origins of agile project management, its manifesto, and the four values and twelve principles of the methodology.

The specifics surrounding the two most popular agile methodologies—Scrum and Kanban—are listed, including the use of a development board so work can be visualized, timeframes, designated roles, and rules. The project lifecycles of agile and waterfall are compared. Waterfall, a traditional process, results in roadblocks; a project can’t move forward until it has been completed and approved. In contrast, agile is iterative and teams arrive at their minimum viable product sooner.

Sally walks attendees through Myriad’s agile project management framework: PDCA (Plan, Do, Check Adjust) and demonstrates how it enhances readiness, visibility, and adaptability, all vital components of a strong cybersecurity posture. She goes over Myriad’s security reference model, which breaks down everything to be considered while evaluating the security strength of an IT infrastructure into 4 domains and 24 categories. This simplifies the products and services into easy to digest items, which makes the security landscape easier to navigate.

By addressing each category and creating a list of projects organized by priority (and then reprioritizing as team members finish projects and adjust), a project road map is created to bring a security posture from its current state to its ideal state. This zooming in to specific pieces of infrastructure and then zooming out to evaluate the infrastructure as a whole is crucial to maintaining the safety and a competitive edge of any organization.

In all, as the threat and risk profile continue to evolve, it forces IT departments to reflect at regular intervals and rapidly adapt, making agile project management a great tool to support an organization in this endeavor. The ability to catch defects and course correct more quickly increases productivity, efficiency, and quality while continuously arming stakeholders with information that move the ROI needle.

“Elevating Your Vantage Point”: The Importance of Evaluating Your Current Cybersecurity Posture

In our recent webinar, “Elevating Your Vantage Point: The State of Your Current Cybersecurity Posture,” Myriad’s consulting solution architect Michael Morganelli is joined by Heather Axworthy, Senior Cybersecurity Engineer at Palo Alto Networks, to discuss the importance of understanding your current cybersecurity posture, as well as best practices. In this part 2 of a 3-part series, “Elevating Your Vantage Point” helps viewers define the gaps that exist between a security posture’s current state and its ideal state.

The presentation starts with an overview of the threat landscape, how it has evolved in terms of both method of attack and who is conducting these attacks, and how it plays a role in evaluating your current infrastructure. After providing a breakdown of the latest facts and figures regarding the legal and cleanup costs of a breach to an organization, Axworthy breaks down the less tangible costs of a breach, including reputation damage and supply chain interruption. The correlation between the number of breaches businesses report each year and workforces becoming more global, remote and mobile is also described. Axworthy discusses how to apply these findings to planning your cybersecurity strategy.

Next, Morganelli gives reasons why visibility may be lacking within your infrastructure before talking about tool fatigue, a common pitfall within the tech industry, and the problems that arise when disparate systems are not able to communicate with each other. He also sheds light on the three important types of tools to expedite the process of defining your current state, how to ensure the right people are involved, and strategies to get all stakeholders to speak a common language. Before a Q&A session, Morganelli and Axworthy touch upon the right questions to ask when choosing a cybersecurity partner.

Myriad Supply Named to Inc. 5000 List for Tenth Year

New York, NY, August 15th, 2018 – Myriad Supply, a cybersecurity consultancy and integrator, announced today it has ranked #3807 on Inc. Magazine’s 38th annual Inc. 5000 list.

“Earning a place on the Inc. 5000 for the tenth time is a tremendous achievement,” said Andrew Fisher, Myriad’s founder and CEO. “Year over year, Myriad has embraced the philosophy of constant improvement, focusing on providing industry-leading security offerings and delivering exceptional customer service.”

Of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000 over the years, only a fraction have made the list more than once; a mere half a percent have made the list 10 times. Myriad has grown an impressive 95 percent over the last three years. Companies that made the list, on average, have grown six-fold since 2014, a factor calculated into Myriad’s current ranking.

“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”

Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared to prior lists. The 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent, and a median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.

The complete Inc. 5000 list is highlighted in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 15, and can be viewed online at www.inc.com/inc5000.
