Brite Spotlight: Meet Jaime and Brian (Security Co-op Edition)

Happy Cybersecurity Awareness Month! While we spend the month empowering all individuals with the tips and skills to #BeCyberSmart, this week’s theme is Explore. Experience. Share. The theme highlights cybersecurity careers and builds awareness around what they do. Today, we want to introduce you to two of Brite’s security co-ops to share their experience and entrance into the world of cybersecurity.

Jaime and Brian were part of the Summer ’21 co-op group in Brite’s Security Operations Center (SOC) working on a team with security analysts actively monitoring and managing clients’ security environments. Since Brian accepted a full-time role as a security analyst and Jaime is continuing her co-op through the fall semester as she continues her studies at RIT.

They can tell you about it better than we can, so let’s hear from Jaime and Brian…

What is your favorite part about being a security analyst at Brite?

Jaime Campanelli

Jaime: The resources and projects I have been working on are very interesting and cool.

Brian: I get to be a part of a program that’s growing at a fast pace and be a part of the process for creating new capabilities and security features. I also get to work with the best people at the best company every day!

What is the top takeaway that you learned during your co-op?

Jaime: “Good Enough is Never Enough” and how important it is to collaborate with others to ensure security and privacy.

Brian: I got to learn the ins and outs of our services and develop playbooks for responding to security events that I got to build on in new client relationships when I

moved into a full-time role on the SOC team.

Did anything surprise you?

Jaime: How attackers can disguise any malicious activity as many different things. In addition to how in-depth everything needs to be analyzed to make sure it is not malicious.

Brian: The many ways in which attacks can start and how quickly everything changes in tactics and techniques. Taking these changes and creating new detections and monitoring is a constant thing that being in the thick of it shows you.

The coolest project you worked on?

Brian Bullis

Jaime: Setting up honey users and deploying a deception sensor.

Brian: Our ongoing automation efforts and improvements allow me to work on cool scripting projects that improve the efficiency of our processes and allow us to spend more time looking at real security events and fewer false positives.

How have your studies translated into your work?

Jaime: My studies have translated into my work greatly. A good amount of information I learned at RIT in lectures or projects has been directly related to the work I have been doing here.

Brian: My classes at RIT prepared me for the real-world SOC work we do every day. I learned a lot about cyberattacks and defense, networking and forensics that come in handy everyday investigations of security events.

What’s your dream cybersecurity job?

Jaime: Working as a Security Director or a related position in a government agency or contractor.

Brian: I’d love to learn more about penetration testing and ethical hacking so that I can look at things from an attacker’s perspective and improve defense capabilities for the good guys.

Thanks to Jaime and Brian for giving us a BTS look into their experience as security co-ops. We wish you the best of luck in your studies and careers. If you want to learn more about security analyst roles, Nick and Sean also shared their insight here.

Brite Spotlight: Meet Mark, Subject Matter Expert

Today is Law Enforcement Appreciation Day! First, Brite sends its deepest gratitude to those serving. In honor of the day, we want to celebrate our own Mark Bonsignore.  As a long-time Brite team member, Mark shares his journey from police captain to Brite’s subject matter expert.

In this special edition Brite Spotlight, we’re (finally) introducing you to our public safety team! Our public safety team works alongside departments to provide innovative technologies that support officers in protecting communities. From account executives to engineers and subject matter experts, there’s a good group and we’re excited to share them. So, huge thanks to Mark for being the first and sharing his insights into his career – connect with him here. (PS – if you’ve missed previous Brite Spotlights, meet them here!)

Meet Mark, Brite’s Subject Matter Expert

Overview of your job.

I joined Brite to assist in building and promoting the Brite-Public Safety offerings throughout the U.S.  as a Subject Matter Expert (SME) and have been with Brite for 13 years. This was after retiring from the Irondequoit Police Department (Rochester, NY) at the rank of Captain after close to 29 years of service. Previously, I worked for the FBI in Washington, DC for 1.5 years.

My job description is rather fluid. I primarily work with law enforcement agencies, supporting our sales teams with pre-sales, sales, and post sales, depending on the customer and/or the product. Our product offerings are broad, and at times very technical, both in the deployment and use.  Most often, my position is consulting with to our sales staff and their customers during pre-sales and product exploration. At times our customers contact me directly for products. I also assist our customers after the sale with training and troubleshooting and support on issues they may be having. Prior to COVID I would typically travel throughout the U.S. for customer training and numerous trade shows.

I further manage the Brite-GSA contract and monitor a number of our other state and local contracts to ensure changes to our product offerings are kept up to date.

What is your favorite part about being a at Brite?

Brite is a family and I appreciate being a part of it. Brite also gives me the ability to interact on a daily basis with my law enforcement brothers and sisters.

What 3 words would you use to describe your job?

Fluid, interesting and interactive

What public safety technology trends are you seeing?

There is a huge move towards intelligence gathering on every level which incorporates artificial intelligence that can assist law enforcement with real-time crime initiatives and analysis.

If you could switch your job with anyone else within Brite, whose job would you want?

No one! I like my job 😉

What does your typical work day look like?

I typically plan out my day and then the phone calls and emails start coming! Our customers are always first. I endeavor to assist our agencies to get them up and running no matter what issue they are having. It is critical for law enforcement! When there is down time, I am working on our contract offerings, participating in customer calls and meetings, updating my technical training on the equipment we offer and service and investigating new and innovative solutions that Brite may find valuable to add to our portfolio.

Again, HUGE thanks to Mark for letting us get to know him. Cheers to all law enforcement for your service and dedication, not only today, but every day.

Brite’s 2020 Recap

The chaos of the holidays and 2021 anticipation aside, we – the Brite team – wanted to take a quick minute to reflect on our 2020 and celebrate all this year had to offer.  

If we had to summarize the year in one word it would be Brite (or bright – do you get the play on words?). Now, we usually don’t use the pun but in this case it seems fitting. We literally changed our name to Brite and it was a positive, growth filled year. 

Before we jump into the Brite’s 2020 recap, we do want to thank you.  Our year wouldn’t have turned out the same if we didn’t have our partners, customers and everyone in-between.

The Brite(st) Highlights of 2020

We introduced you to the Brite team. 

Granted we might be bias, but we have a good group at Brite and decided to share them with the world. So, whether it was welcoming new hires or sharing employees, 2020 was all about getting to know the Brite team. 

Steve WIlmarth, Managed Services Sales Director, celebrating his first day!
Zach, Enterprise rep
Will, Managed Services rep
James, Public Safety rep

Jon-Michael Lacek, Director of Security Operations
Ty, SOC Analyst

We got cozy at home.

There are just some things that you don’t get in the office like kids doing TikTok dances in the background or bringing coffee during morning meetings.  Huddles, calls and chats kept us in touch when we were away from the office. 

Happy hour with the public safety and Getac team!

We took on some projects at the office.

Starting in February, Brite took on building out a new network operations center (NOC) in our Victor, NY headquarters to better support both our managed IT and managed security service customers.  Needless to say, we still are rather excited to show it off!

We celebrated our success.

2020 was an overwhelming year gaining recognition for the hard work our team puts in. Throughout the year we received and celebrated awards for 2020 Rochester Top Workplace, Inc. 5000, and Rochester Top 100 company. 

Celebrated the Top Workplace award with donuts!

We kicked off a new era of Brite.

In the years since Brite Computers was founded in 1987, we’ve evolved.  From a computer manufacturer to delivering innovative technology solutions, we were simply more than “Computers”.  So, we highlighted the evolution with a new name and identity. 

Finally, we proactively protected communities and organizations through innovative technology solutions delivered by our talented team.

As an IT company, we’re dedicated to helping organizations find and implement technology to help solve problems and enable them to achieve their mission.  Between our three focus areas – Enterprise Cybersecurity, Public Safety Technology, and Managed Services – our team of sales advisors, engineers, project managers worked with organizations nationwide to protect communities and organizations through technology. 

Cheers to 2020 and path it created for continued success in 2021!

P.S. Check out our current job openings to be part of the Brite journey.

We’ve evolved beyond computers.

Brite Computers is now Brite.

Did you hear the news? We dropped Computers – don’t worry, just from our name (though we did want to throw them off the roof for the announcement). This change away from Brite Computers marks a new era of Brite. And we want to tell you all about it.

Just as technology has evolved, Brite has too.  Back in 1983 when the company was a custom computer manufacturer, Brite Computers made sense.  Fast-forward to today, Brite is so much more than computers.  

The intensifying digital cultural shift created business challenges as computers became more affordable and accessible. In response to our customers’ needs, we uncovered three new ways to support our computing customers looking to adapt digital trends – Managed IT Services, Public Safety Technology and Enterprise Cybersecurity Solutions. 

Over the past 20 years, these three business units have continued to mature, evolve and grow within Brite.  Now, we are so much more than computers and knew it is time to give Brite a refresh to better reflect how Brite helps to proactively protect organizations and communities.  

A new era: Brite

The reality is not much is changing.  Sure, we have an updated name and logo, but it all stems from years of growth, evolution and commitment to engaging in partnerships with clients.  Our team continues to enable customers with the right technology and expert processes to better help them achieve their goals, objectives and missions.

After almost four decades in business, the Brite team understands that each organization has unique IT business challenges and are committed to finding the right solution for those situations – not to just sell the newest, flashiest hardware or software. Brite’s core is in understanding technology trends and challenges, thoroughly vetting partners with proven solutions to meet emerging needs and investing in our employees’ growth. 

So, we’re Brite with “Brite People. Brite Solutions.” driven by the mission to proactively protect organizations and communities through innovative technology solutions delivered by our talented team.

Brite Spotlight: Meet Christine, Account Executive

For our newest spotlight, meet Christine! She’s part of our Cybersecurity Sales Team and doing amazing things (Spoiler: she’s getting her bachelor’s in Cybersecurity Administration!). To loop you in on all the details, she kindly answered a few questions so you can get to know her!

A brief overview of your job.

I am an Account Executive in Enterprise Cybersecurity Sales here at Brite. My three-year anniversary was celebrated in May! I enjoy being a trusted advisor to my clients, sharing best practices and new technology, all while expanding my own knowledge as it pertains to cybersecurity.

What is your favorite part about being at Brite?

My favorite part of being a Brite employee is the constant learning that takes place here. As cyber professionals we need to keep pace with evolving technology in the expectation that we can assist our customers in fending off bad actors and those who would mean to do harm. At Brite we have regular training on the solutions that are part of our portfolio. We are also encouraged to do our own research and attend webinars to keep up with current trends. This has served me well in my personal life, as I began pursuing my bachelor’s degree in Cybersecurity at Norwich University, but just recently transferred to Syracuse University to complete my bachelor’s in Cybersecurity Administration. I thoroughly enjoy learning the technical side of cybersecurity as well as having the ability to talk intelligently about technology with the teams I work with.

What 3 words would you use to describe your job?

Competitive, challenging, rewarding.

What kinds of security risks are you seeing?

The biggest security risk I have seen with my clients is around phishing attacks. Free Amazon gift cards always look appealing, but often are a ruse to gain access to an environment. Amidst the COVID epidemic, remote worker endpoint security has become a definite concern. Suddenly, perimeter defense was gone, which is a critical aspect of a multi-layered cyber strategy. The other concern that comes up often is the visibility and the ability to control IoT and BYOD devices. As is said so often, you cannot control what you cannot see, and the rise in IoT and BYOD devices has become a real challenge for security teams.

If you could switch your job with anyone else within Brite, whose job would you want?

I honestly do not think I would want to change with anyone. I love what I do and know that I am in the right place doing what I am meant to be doing. If I had to choose, I would say Kelly Woods, who is our Professional Services Manager. I love project management and being on the technical side of the house working with engineers and security teams would be exciting and challenging.

What does your typical workday look like?

Is there such a thing as a typical day?? Pre-COVID, I drove to Buffalo a few days a week to work with my teams strategizing, road mapping and attending regular cadence sessions. Today, my days are spent on endless virtual meetings, phone calls, emails, and text messages. I sincerely miss the people I work with and cannot wait for this to settle down to the point that we have some level of normalcy back in our day to day lives. Until then, my iPhone and AirPods will continue to get a workout!

Huge thanks to Christine for taking the time to answer the questions! Who do you want to hear from in our next Brite Spotlight?

Meet Will and Zach – Brite’s Newest Team

Between adding our sixth Inc. 5000 award, another Rochester Top Workplace award, and a fourth Rochester Top 100 award to our resume recently, we also welcomed a few new faces to the team. To say Brite is growing would be in an understatement.

While the awards are h u g e accomplishments (and a great excuse to surprise the office with donuts), today is all about you getting to know our new additions – Will and Zach. We welcomed them to the Brite fam in July and it’s finally time for you to get to know them. Don’t worry though, we made it easy and had them answer a few questions.

What is your role at Brite?  Account Executive bringing our Managed Services, including Managed IT Service, BriteStar, to SMBs to help offset the everyday IT tasks and improve efficiency and security.

If you could switch jobs with anyone else within Brite, whose job would you want?  I would switch my job with John Marzano (Technical Consultant, Managed Services) because I think it would be cool and insightful to work with clients on the technical side of the services that I am selling.

What are 3 words to describe Brite?  Trustworthy, Unique, Collaborative

What’s your dream vacation?  Ski or golf trip out west followed by craft brewery touring.

If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose? Happy Gilmore

What is your role at Brite?  I’m an Account Executive bringing cybersecurity solutions to enterprises in the NJ, PA, and NYC area with Josh Teichman.

If you could switch jobs with anyone else within Brite, whose job would you want?  I’m not sure I’d want to switch roles but if I could have the skill and ability that Matt Ostrowski (Senior Solutions Engineer) has, I’ve always thought that doing the engineering behind the solutions we sell is one of the coolest things!

What are 3 words to describe Brite?  Absolutely great people.

What’s your dream vacation?  I’d love to travel the Mediterranean countries from Croatia across Northern Italy, down through France, ending in Southern Spain.  Ideally I would drive some nice cars, ride some motorcycles through beautiful mountain roads and be able to spend some time out boating as well.

If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose? Of all the fictional characters I could be I would probably choose Luke Skywalker because of his journey, crazy experiences, and development over time, not to mention all the cool powers of being a Jedi.

Meet more of the Brite fam…

Brite Spotlight: Meet Sean and Nick, SOC Analysts

We often talk about people, process and technology when it comes to Brite and our managed services.  While our process and technology are highlighted elsewhere, we want to showcase our people!  As our team and services grow, it’s important to introduce the members of the team who are behind the scenes executing on the process.  Within the past year, we welcomed two SOC analysts to the team to help work with clients on their IT environments.  Now it’s time for you to meet them!  

Meet Sean and Nick, both graduates from Utica College’s cybersecurity program and past Brite interns.  They kindly answered a few questions to share about their roles at Brite. 

A brief overview of your SOC analyst job + daily tasks. 

Sean: I’ve been working at Brite for just over five months now as a security analyst. A security analyst detects, mitigates, and protects against cyber threats

In my role, I review assessments and help identify risk within our client’s infrastructure to ensure their data and information remains safe, research newfound cyber vulnerabilities and analyze network information.

Nick: I’m a Security Analyst and have worked at Brite for 10 months. I monitor network activity for Brite and its clients.  Tasks include checking reports, making security recommendations to clients (ranging from firewall or IDS/IPS configuration changes, up to and including recommending new technologies), staying up to date with security information and news, consulting with clients on a daily basis to answer security-related questions and assist with security and network operations.

What is your favorite part about being a security analyst (at Brite)?

Sean: My favorite part about being a security analyst at Brite is working with the team, and all the different clients on a daily basis.

Nick: I love working with the Brite security team every day. I also learn something new every day at my job; and it provides me with a sense of fulfillment.

What 3 words would you use to describe your job?

Sean: Three words to describe my job would be: Exciting, Growing, and Fun.

Nick: I would say my job is fun, complex and fluid (it’s new every day and changing).

What do you think is the biggest misconception about working as a security analyst?

Sean: I think the biggest misconception about being a security analyst is that you just sit at a desk and stare at a computer screen all day.

Nick: Movies are an area of a lot of misinformation. Something you always see in the movies is two “hackers” ferociously typing away trying to defend their network or hack a system. The reality is most work gets done when there is no typing at all. You are ingesting the information, thinking, and communicating with your team.

What kinds of security risks are you seeing?

Sean: I see tons of security risks associated with outdated systems and software.

Nick: Today the biggest security threat is phishing attacks. These attacks have become highly sophisticated and very targeted which allows for emails to bypass spam filters. One bad choice could cripple a network. 

Are there any emerging trends/threats that you think will be a problem?

Sean: The biggest emerging threat or problem I see trending right now are threat actors taking advantage of the COVID-19 crisis. There has been a big increase in phishing emails associated with COVID, and newfound vulnerabilities associated with remote working.

Nick: What concerns me most is the growing number of medical IoT devices. Medical devices now rely on network connections to run efficiently and properly.  With medical devices the concern shifts from financial loss to the potential for human loss.

And there you have it, Brite’s newest SOC Analysts. Huge thanks to the two for taking the time to share insights into their roles.  

Brite Spotlight: Meet Dan, Network Operations Specialist

A major component of our managed IT service solution – BriteStar – is our Network Operations Center (NOC) team. The NOC team are the integral people in BriteStar’s superior combination of people, process and technology. While customers most likely interact with our NOC team from a help desk perspective  (i.e. calling in when you or someone on the team needs IT help) the team plays a much broader role in front line, proactive and strategic support.

To highlight the vast array of talent and roles in our NOC, we would like to introduce you to a member of the team, Dan, who kindly answered some questions about his role.  So, without further ado let’s get to know Dan!

A brief overview of your job as Network Operations Specialist.

I am a Network Operations Specialist and am involved in a few different areas in the NOC. I assist with responding to our incoming tickets as well as perform proactive maintenances and maintain customer relationships. I have been with Brite for almost two and a half years, starting in our RMA department and moving into the NOC after one year.

What is a NOC?

A NOC is a Network Operations Center where a team of individuals are working together to minimize downtime for our client’s IT infrastructure and userbase. We spend our time responding in real-time to IT/computer issues, maintaining servers and infrastructure, and integrating all aspects of technology into a company’s day-to-day operation.

What are 5 daily tasks you do as a NOC Specialist?

-Responding to incoming tickets when our other technicians are tied-up, whether this be via phone or email

-Handling escalation requests from our technicians who need higher-level support or elevated permissions

-Responding to customer outages. This may be a server that went down or a third-party outage.

-MBRs (Monthly Business Reviews) for our customers. I have a client-base for which I review their infrastructure and keep them up to date on any changes or remediations that need to take place.

-Implementing and discussing new technology. We spend time each week discussing new technology and software that can benefit our customers.

What is your favorite part about being a NOC Specialist (at Brite)?

The fast-paced environment. There is always more to learn every day when things are moving fast in the world of IT.

What 3 words would you use to describe your job?

Fast, Detailed, and Challenging

What kinds of security risks are you seeing?

Many risks nowadays are through email. Especially during these times, many “bad-actors” try to take advantage through malicious email links or executables. Often, they are posing as a colleague or someone you communicate with regularly. Luckily, we have technology in place to limit these interactions, but some of it is left up to the end-user.

Have you ever caught any malicious software in progress?

Luckily, I have never caught any malicious software in progress. But almost every day our Anti-Virus programs and portals are catching malicious software that makes its way to computers. Most of the time this software is caught before anything happens.

What do you think is the biggest misconception about working in a NOC?

The biggest misconception about working in a NOC is that it is just a help desk. While we do have technicians who are focused on responding to daily issues, there are many tasks within IT that require more than reactive resolutions. We need to plan for future technology implementation, maintain an up-to-date physical and virtual infrastructure, and make sure our clients are taken care of in every aspect of their technology needs.

Huge thanks to Dan for sharing some behind the scenes of his role! Curious about other roles in our NOC? Meet Jess, one of Brite’s Network Administrators in her blog here! 

Celebrating International Women’s Day with a Brite Spotlight! Meet Jess, Network Administrator

Today, we’re celebrating Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day by getting to know one of Brite’s very own #WomenInTech! We’re excited to introduce you to one of our NOC specialists, Jess.  She’s been part of the Brite team for five years and outlined her current tech role as a Network Administrator!  

First off, what is a NOC? 

NOC stands for Network Operations Center. The team is together in one room to make for easy collaboration on tasks and alerts. We monitor our customer sites with dashboards, gauges and alerting so our customers have minimal downtime. We’re constantly monitoring servers being down, IP ranges filling up, ensuring Datto backup appliances are checking in, etc.

What do you think is the biggest misconception about working in a NOC?

That we’re simply just a helpdesk. The NOC is much more than just taking calls and responding to tickets from customers. Daily, we all work together to research new ways to try to limit tickets and ensure the highest up times for customers. In addition, we work on projects including network hardware migrations, email migration to O365 and running network assessments. 

What are 5 daily tasks you do as a Network Administrator? 

  • Backup checks.  This involves checking the server backups daily for each customer in the event that they need data recovery or a full backup disaster recovery. 
  • Ensure reactive tickets are being updated and worked on by all the techs to get them closed as quickly and efficiently as possible.
  • QBR (quarterly business review) preparation for customers. We meet with our customers quarterly to ensure open communication so that everything is up to date, and we make customers aware of any future changes or actionable upgrades. 
  • Resolving tickets that have been escalated from Level 1.
  • Responding to alerts that come in for servers being down.

What is your favorite part about being a Network Administrator? 

Learning the many and evolving aspects of IT.

What 3 words would you use to describe your job? 

  • Fast-paced
  • Dynamic
  • Meticulous 

What kinds of security risks are you seeing? 

Lack of user training is a big risk as social engineering becomes more prevalent. We’re seeing more phishing emails that are extremely specific, which makes users vulnerable. The targeted emails posing as a colleague/executive or vendor appear to be legitimate, resulting in users clicking on malicious links. 

Have you ever caught any malicious software in progress? 

In doing my daily server backup checks, I was alerted of ransomware on a server. I logged into the server and worked with our NOC manager to find what it was and where it was coming from. We were able to remove it and make security changes to prevent another attack from happening in the future.  You can read more about the attack here. 

We hope you enjoyed getting to know Jess and how our NOC operates! Happy International Women’s Day!

Meet Brite’s newest team members!

Hey, thanks for stopping by our blog.  Today’s post is a little different than our usual IT-related content.  Our Brite team has some new faces around the office, and while we’ve spent the past few months getting to know them, we thought maybe now is the time you should too.

Because of the diverse areas of our business, Brite has a wide array of positions.  We have customer facing sales roles that work to help our customers find the right solution for their needs.  Engineers to help ensure the solution is the right technical fit and help with the implementation.  And, NOC and security specialists to help offload the daily task of managing an IT infrastructure and security tools.  Really what we’re saying is that we have a job for everyone.  (We even have openings right now (!!!), so take a look at our careers page to see if anything catches your eye)

A n y w a y, let’s get back to meeting our newest team members.  Rather than your typical bio, we had them answer a few questions. We wanted to make sure to avoid the awkward first date silence.

What sports team would you want to be on and why?  If I could pick one sports team to be on, it would be the Los Angeles Lakers.  Living in LA would be pretty cool and playing for a historically special team would be pretty amazing.
