The threat landscape is continuously changing and IT security has never been more challenging than right now
Scottsdale, Ariz. (PRWEB) February 13, 2012
Gone are the days when a simple antivirus solution was all organizations needed to remain protected from malicious software. In the last year, the number of malware incidents has nearly doubled, and attacks have significantly increased in frequency, according to a study by the Ponemon Institute. This escalating trend in cyber attacks is what inspired Lumension®, a global leader in endpoint management and security to offer a new webinar, “E is for Endpoint: 6 Security Strategies for Highly Effective IT Pros,” on February 22 at 11am ET.
Facilitated by Lumension’s Paul Zimski, Vice President of Solution Marketing, leading security experts including Paul Henry, Security and Forensic Analyst at Lumension; Richard Stiennon, Chief Research Analyst at IT-Harvest and Jim Czyzewski, Supervisor of Clinical Desktop Support at MidMichigan Medical Center, will discuss security strategies for IT professionals that go beyond antivirus software and defense-in-depth strategies to enable operational improvement in endpoint security.
“The threat landscape is continuously changing and IT security has never been more challenging than right now,” said Henry. “Even over the course of the last year, we’ve seen some substantial changes in how businesses are being attacked. With the abundance of mobile devices and a rapidly changing threat landscape, it’s more and more difficult for organizations to keep up. And it is just going to keep getting harder.”
In the webinar, the panelists will discuss:
- The most common attack vectors in today’s IT environment;

- Secrets to an effective defense-in-depth approach.
