Mike Smart, Senior Manager, Products and Solutions, Symantec
Website Security Series Part 3
The external threat landscape is evolving; web-based malware and legitimate website hacking is continuing to fluctuate as we learn and adapt our network defence strategies, or externalise our infrastructure to mitigate risk. However, do these initiatives around protection extend to our customers?
Every organisation has a web presence and increasingly this presence is not just for broadcasting corporate brands and products; it is used to collect and socialise personal information from customers and constituents and process regulated financial transactions.
In this session Symantec will discuss:
- Top threats that target customer identities
- How the Trust model of SSL has survived the last 18 months
- Why the Internet’s top brands are moving to Always-On SSL
- Why not all SSL certificate infrastructures are created equal and how this can influence business growth
- How to manage an expanding cryptography infrastructure effectively
