Patricia Titus Joins CyberUnited's Board

Most recently, she served as vice president and chief information security officer at Symantec

SAN DIEGO, Calif.--June 18, 2013--CyberUnited, a leading insider threat security informatics company, today announced that former Symantec Vice President and CISO Patricia Titus has joined CyberUnited's board of directors. As a board member, Titus will draw on her more than 20 years of security experience, 10 years in high tech management, to help drive forward CyberUnited's innovative neural network technology and position the company for continued significant growth.

Titus has a stellar reputation and extensive experience in the security industry. Most recently, she served as vice president and chief information security officer at Symantec, where she played a strategic role in protecting the company's IT resources, infrastructure and information assets, while driving internal security initiatives. Prior to Symantec, Titus was vice president and global chief information security officer at Unisys Corp. In that role, she was responsible for enhancing the existing network security and policies supporting Unisys worldwide employees, while ensuring the continued protection of sensitive corporate and customer data. Titus also served as chief information security officer at the Transportation Security Administration within the Department of Homeland Security. There, she created, implemented and maintained a robust IT security program. She has also worked overseas in various positions within the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. State Department and private-sector firms.

Titus joins CyberUnited's four other distinguished board members: Malcolm Bohm, an industry luminary; Dr. Todd Peterson, vice president of Synthetic Biology R&D at Life Technologies; and Brent Wrisley, CEO of PUNCHCyber.

"I was pleased to accept the invitation to join the board of such an innovative company," said Titus. "There is a nexus coming of predictive analytics, big data and security informatics that CyberUnited has the opportunity to nurture and expand. It represents products and services that could bring about significant change in the way organizations handle threats from within."

"Patricia's addition to our board of directors underscores our huge potential in cybersecurity," said Darin Andersen, CEO of CyberUnited. "For more than two decades, she has been entrenched in the security industry, having been tasked with implementing security programs for some of the world's largest organizations. Patricia's expertise will certainly be an asset to us as we continue to develop innovative technologies to help in the fight against cyber crime."

About CyberUnited

CyberUnited prevents sensitive data loss from your organization by revealing the identity of determined insiders.

CyberUnited's cloud based solution, Pit Viper&trade, reveals insiders engaged in digital fraud, IT sabotage or IP theft. It integrates big data analytics and predictive analysis software to sift through multiple data sets, isolating employee anomalies that could indicate potential malicious activity inside a network.

Pit Viper utilizes CyberUnited's proprietary self-learning neural network known as Bandito&trade to detect, analyze and classify every byte pattern in a network to understand and learn specific threat indicators and precursors in real time.

The platform differs from other cyber threat technologies because it is transparent, adjusts dynamically and provides alerts in real time. It is highly sensitive, accurate and integrates easily with existing security technologies.

Our solution predicts malicious behavior before they occur so that insider threats can be completely neutralized, saving data, money and reputations. For more information go to: www.cyberunited.com
