North Andover, Mass. – July 10, 2019 – (ISC)² – the world’s largest nonprofit membership association of certified cybersecurity professionals – today announced it has recognized Dong-bum Lee, Genians CEO, as 2019 Showcased Honoree in the category of Managerial Professional for an Information Security Project.
As the founder and CEO of Genians since 2005, Dong-Bum has applied his energy and unparalleled experience to propel Genians, its customers, its partners, and even Korean society to the cutting edge of the cybersecurity field by leveraging the company’s flagship product, Genian Network Access Control (NAC). In the process, he has provided leadership to the global NAC market by introducing Genians Next-Gen NAC to help organizations of all sizes struggling to address the fundamental cybersecurity issues of the IoT era.
As Dong-Bum notes, “It is a great honor to be recognized with this (ISC)² ISLA award. As we all know, cybersecurity is a tough job. The field’s professionals are often highly compensated, but their work often remains hidden behind the scenes. Team Genians has done and continues to do a tremendous job helping its more than 1,300 customers around the world secure their network access.”
Dong-bum also points out that “We all know cybersecurity is no longer a regional or industry-specific challenge but rather global in scope. In a world of ever-advancing cyber threats, we all need to work together to build a more secure world regardless of politics and culture. To achieve that, Team Genians is ready to share and discuss our proven technology and experience, which is exactly what we have been doing around the world.“

Recently, Genians announced its collaboration with both 128 Technology, the leader in Session Smart™ routing, and Seceon, which pioneered the first fully-automated, real-time cyber threat detection and remediation solution, as part of its next-generation network access control solution helping to further secure the WAN and mitigate cyber-attacks from inside the enterprise and without.
