Diana Kelly, IANS Faculty Advisor and Founder of SecurityCurve; Jeff Bradberry – BrightPoint - Manager, IT Security
Information security has undergone a sea change in the past 10 years. Compliance mandates in the form of industry standards and Federal rules like NER, FFIEC, HIPAA/HITECH and PCI-DSS are the new normal. To stay in compliance, IT teams need to be able to keep up with updates and changes to existing mandates and be prepared for new ones. To maximize efficiency, manage risk and reduce potential violations due to compliance failure, organizations need to implement tools that apply and support multiple facets across different compliance specifications. Network Access Control (NAC) supports numerous critical security and protection functions across multiple mandates.
This interactive expert / user session, led by IANS faculty advisor Diana Kelly of Security curve with end user participant Jeff Bradberry of BrightPoint, will examine NAC and real-world compliance use cases. Using ForeScout CounterACT as an example, attendees will discover:
- How NAC works
- Key NAC functions that apply to compliance processes and specifications
- Real-world use cases; considerations, controls, activities and processes; and
- How NAC specifically maps to top commercial, regulatory and federal mandates.
