Scottsdale, Ariz. (PRWEB) September 1, 2010
In today’s mobile, nonstop business environment, information is drifting further away from the corporate boundaries and towards the endpoints. Cyber criminals have more opportunities than ever to gain unauthorized access to valuable data. Endpoints now store the crown jewels: financial records, medical records, trade secrets, customer lists, classified information, etc. Such valuable data fuels the on-demand business environment, but simultaneously creates a dilemma for security professionals to determine the best way to protect it.
Lumension, the global leader in endpoint management and security, will host a three-part webcast series entitled Endpoint Security Fundamentals to examine how to build a real-world, defense-in-depth security program – one that is sustainable and one that does not impede business productivity. Experts who will lead the discussions are Mike Rothman, Analyst and President of Securosis, and Jeff Hughes, Director of Solution Marketing with Lumension.
Part one will focus on Finding and Fixing the Leaky Buckets, including:
The fundamental steps to take before implementing security enforcement solutions
How to effectively prioritize IT risks to focus on what matters most
How to act on the information gathered through assessment and prioritization efforts
How to get some “quick wins” and effectively communicate security challenges to senior management
Part two will focus on Leveraging the Right Enforcement Controls, including:
How to automate the update and patch management process across applications and operating systems to ensure all software is current
How to define and enforce standardized and secure endpoint configurations
How to effectively layer your defense and the evolving role that application whitelisting plays
How to implement USB device control and encryption technologies to protect data
Part 3 will focus on Building the Endpoint Security Program, including:
How to manage expectations and define success
How to effectively train users on policies and ensure two-way communication to evolve policies as needed
How to effectively respond to incidents when they occur to minimize potential damage
