What You Don’t Know CAN Hurt You: Eliminating Cyber Security Blind Spots and Optimizing Incident Response

The traditional cyber security infrastructure is riddled with blind spots… open doors for threats we can’t see, because the tools we traditionally rely on can’t see them. Detecting data leakage your DLP misses, detecting the new malware your IDS and antivirus don’t recognize, and monitoring traveling and telecommuting employees -- whether they’re logged into your network or not -- are all tremendous challenges for organizations. This is because the traditional cyber security model is piecemeal and dangerously inefficient. For most organizations, their ability to detect threats ends with their DLP and signature-based prevention and alerting tools. Then when a compromise is detected, incident responders rely on a variety of disparate tools and meet in person to share and correlate findings.

Join Dale Beauchamp, TSA and Jason Mical,  AccessData Group as they describe how the cyber security model is evolving and discuss the capabilities that are required to overcome these detection and response obstacles. Beauchamp and Mical will review and advise on the following:

  • Investing in detection and response vs. prevention
  • The need for technology that picks up where signature-based prevention and alerting tools leave off
  • Achieving rapid response through integrated analysis
  • Proactive detection – the final frontier – what it takes to detect unknown threats and malicious insiders before damage is done
  • Implementing real-time collaboration among all information security teams with reporting up and down the chain of command
