Are there any tools that have helped ease your ransomware concerns?

I’m not worried about ransomware at my airport because I've air gapped, segmented certain things off. The portions and schedules that you can get from the internet are totally separate from anything dealing with the aircraft. Also for updating the aircraft themselves, everything is completely air gapped. Because I have it totally separated, it does make some things more difficult. People say, "I want access to take a look at whatever I did for timing on this," but that has to be done from the office. It’s at such a level that I can't make that kind of mistake.

There are a lot of security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) tools out there and as an angel investor/advisor I've looked at a bunch. We're using Tines right now. I chose them over some of the other platforms because one of the things that I struggle with on teams is that I've always been someone that wants to push and pull with APIs and automate the boring, repetitive, tedious stuff but I found finding security professionals that know how to code is hard. That’s why I liked Tines’ storyboard approach.

I'm not trying to push one or the other. I hope to make it ubiquitous so that everybody on the team can create stories and automate workflows. But while the gap is closing and I don't need coders to be as sophisticated, I still need someone from DevSecOps, so I've limited the number of people that can actually create the automations. I still let everybody sandbox it though, because I think it's useful.

We are in IT management and monitoring and we don't necessarily do security, but the overall concern about the health of the network is something that's come up. We have on prem solutions as well as those that are deployed in the cloud—for example, an Airgap solution—which people really enjoy, especially when they're in highly secure organizations.
