Our CEO and President, John Prisco, is heading to NYC next week to join 14 other information security execs in discussing how to protect companies’ data from malware. The event will be moderated by the first CIO, Steve Katz, and will bring together top security executives in a roundtable to examine current strategies and concerns when it comes to next generation threats including targeted attacks, in-memory attacks, and zero day threats. These are issues that are not only producing big headlines, but also having a big impact on companies’ bottom lines. According to the Ponemon Institute’s 2014 report, the average cost of a data breach is $3.5M, which is up 15 percent from a year ago. With IT being asked to do more with less headcount and budget, enterprise security teams are struggling to protect network borders, endpoints, and other organizational assets.
Some of the specific points that John and the other panelists will be covering at the event on October 23 are:
- Is the talk about increasing sophistication of malware real or hype?
- How are you dealing with latest generation malware? How do you stay current?
- Is detection the new prevention?
- How do you explain malware risk to business management?
- Does your company have any liability if your environment is compromised by malware that could have been detected?
