Security Experts from European-Based Analyst Firm KuppingerCole and Agiliance to Discuss Best Practices in Tackling Advanced Persistent Threats

Agiliance® Inc., the leading independent provider of Security and Operational Risk Management solutions for Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) programs, today announced that it will host a webinar with leading European-based analyst firm KuppingerCole titled “Surviving the Cyber Security Attack Wave.” The webinar is scheduled on Thursday, October 13, 2011, 7:00 a.m. PT / 10:00 a.m. ET / 4:00 p.m. CET.

As computer software has become the backbone of modern civilization, organized cyber criminals, so-called hacktivists, state sponsored cyber attackers, and terrorist organizations try to exploit design flaws and weaknesses in the applications in order to generate revenue and carry out criminal activities. The growing number of cyber attacks has become one of the most serious economic and national security threats organizations are facing.

Most recent cyber attacks and associated data breaches of Google, Epsilon (a leading marketing services firm), and RSA (the security division of data management giant EMC) are just the tip of the iceberg. However, these incidents reveal the dilemma that organizations are facing as their current vulnerability measures are unable to keep up with the evolving exploits, including perimeter intrusion detection, signature-based malware and anti-virus solutions.

In the KuppingerCole / Agiliance-hosted webinar, KuppingerCole's co-founder and principle analyst Martin Kuppinger and Torsten George from Security and Operational Risk Management pioneer Agiliance will describe the elements of a properly planned and implemented security risk management program that enables organizations to reduce risk by making threats and vulnerabilities visible and actionable, enabling them to prioritize and address high risk security exposures before breaches occur.
