Deriving Superior Value from Mitigating a Data Breach

In today’s enterprise IT environments, the threat of network intrusion and data breach is constant and ubiquitous. The exponential growth in connectivity results in a 360-degree attack surface, and the staggering rate of morphing and expansion of malware makes it impossible to defend the crown jewels using current strategies and technologies. The result is that incident response and disaster recovery have become industries unto themselves. Vendors and various organizations produce metrics showing the costs per breach, per record, per organization, or per sector. However, the real ROI is in avoiding the catastrophic losses that make the headlines.

The Human Side of Security Architecture

Hear a frank discussion about the core of security architecture often lost in a CIO’s strategy--humans. During this session, David Carter of Encore Technology Group will demonstrate the need for a comprehensive understanding of the people side of a security architecture. Carter will also show how a simplified architecture can survive all the technologies IT and line of business throw at it. He will also share how Encore’s broad customer base budgets for the human side of security architecture and justifies those costs to the executive suite.

Security Briefing #3: The Future of Endpoint Security

 Today’s skilled attackers bypass traditional endpoint defenses such as firewalls and antivirus software that most security teams have relied on for years. Even when a traditional IT defense stops a known threat, it is often difficult for an organization to determine what was the intended target. In this session, senior IT leaders will gain an understanding of the  future of IT security including the inevitable convergence of traditional endpoint protection functionality with the next generation of endpoint detection and response. Attendees will also gain insight into the security tools and processes to help their security teams detect, contain and understand the nature and purpose of known and unknown threats on the endpoint.
