Skin cancer is by far the most prevalent cancer. Each year, approximately 3.4 million people in the US alone are diagnosed with some form of skin cancer. Skin cancer can be highly treatable if it is detected and classified early, and this detection and classification is often aided by immunohistochemistry. This presentation covers many of the basic science, facts, and statistics of skin cancer, as well as the utility of immunohistochemical testing with markers such as S-100, SOX-10, Ber-Ep4, and HHV-8 in the accurate diagnosis and survival rates of skin cancer.

Most corporate networks are complex and include various operating systems, servers and massive amounts of data. This data is transferred, stored and accessed across the network. In 2014, 43% of data breaches were classified as a result of lost or stolen drives or due to accidently making data public . Encrypting this data is a great way to protect against these risks but with so many different platforms, operating systems, servers and applications, the task can be daunting.
In this webcast, we’ll show you how Symantec’s Encryption solutions can help you achieve heterogeneous encryption across your entire network and of all critical data whether it’s at rest or in motion.
Join us on January 26th at 10am PT to learn how.

Many recent data breaches have exploited security weaknesses in the networks of third parties to attack businesses. With supply chains growing and business functions increasingly outsourced, the number of third party organizations with access to your company’s most sensitive data has increased dramatically. How should organizations assess and manage the cyber risk by their vendors and suppliers? What kinds of policies and controls should organizations put in place in order to mitigate third party cyber risk? How can organizations continuously monitor the cybersecurity performance of their critical vendors in real time?
Getting familiar with third party cyber risk management best practices and industry standards is a good start towards mitigating cyber risk for your organization. Join Jake Olcott, VP of Business Development as he discusses these topics and more.
During this short 15 minute webinar we will share the example of how a power utility company went about securing their >500 distributed power substations from cyber-attacksRead more >
Large data breaches have caused executives to invest significant time and resources in improving cybersecurity within their own companies. But now the attackers are targeting an organization’s weakest links - business partners and contractors who have access to the most sensitive data. How should senior leaders develop a strategy to manage third party cyber risk? Who are the most critical business partners to be concerned about? How can contractual language reduce the risk? Is there a way to gain real-time visibility into the security posture of the supply chain? And what are the regulators saying about all of this?
Join Jake Olcott, Vice President at BitSight Technologies as he talks about:

Albert Einstein once observed: "Technological progress is like an axe in the hands of a pathological criminal." His words were eerily prophetic of the continuous news of data breaches in the retail and banking sectors.
Data breaches can be financially catastrophic as they drive costs to repair the damage, costs to secure their systems, costs to repay the consumers, losses in profits, losses in consumer confidence, and lawsuits seeking damages for alleged negligence. Intense media and Congressional scrutiny have classified all data breaches as direct attacks on privacy, and any company that has possession of personal identification information should consider itself in possession of potentially explosive material.
Although the headline-making breaches are highly sophisticated, most attacks simply exploit lax security practices. In fact, Verizon's 2014 Data Breach Investigations Report found that 78 percent of the attacks were of very low or low difficulty. That means that in more than three-quarters of all breaches, attackers used basic methods that required few resources and no software customization. That's the bad news. The good news is that the vast majority of security breaches can be prevented by implementing and enforcing basic security best practices with proven technologies.
Join our panel of experts as they discuss how to implement data security best practices, and how to prepare your experts with a crisis response plan to avoid being another headline.
