How can IT security adapt to fight constantly mutating cyber threats?
As the adversarial relationship between information security professionals and malicious cyberactors intensifies, the security gap between new attack methods and traditional controls will grow in favor of the attackers.
Cyberattacks have become multidimensional in their complexity and sophistication.
Join Forrester Analyst, Chenxi Wang, Ph.D. to:
- Look at the new threats that corporate IT will face in 2012
- Discuss the role of IT in the face of such threats
- Review effective investment and risk management strategies to get ahead of the cyberattacks
- Explore strategies to invest in preventative technologies, not just on reactive controls
More specifically, we will dive into strategies to build a solid layered defense, not just patch-work products. For example, going from firewalls and IDS to log management, building DLP capabilities in your network, and investing in strong host-based controls would help you raise the bar significantly and give you advanced capabilities to identify malicious behaviors before they wreak havoc.
Panel Discussion Points with Forrester and ESET's Research team:
- What sort of new threats (or increase of existing threats) can be expected in 2012?
- What role does the commoditization of IT have, if any, in those threats?
- What role does the social media have, if any, in those threats?
- What can IT departments do to reduce their threat surface profile?

Why have two-factor authentication (2FA) in the workplace? Even if you’ve instituted password management best practices, employees will still use their work password on other websites, write their passwords on sticky notes, or use their nicknames or birthdays without a second thought—and put your business at risk.
With new PCI-DSS regulations surrounding multi-factor authentication requirements coming up on Oct. 31, it’s time to get up to speed on this proactive technology.
In this webinar, Robert Westervelt, research manager of IDC’s Security Products group, and ESET’s solutions engineer Ben Reed will provide an in-depth overview of the following:
•Account credential theft: What can be done to prevent employees from falling into a trap?
•How 2FA/multi-factor authentication can reduce the risk of account hijacking, mitigate weak passwords and help satisfy compliance requirements.
•The types of multifactor authentication solutions available on the market and how it can contribute to creating a stronger security culture in the workplace.
