WALTHAM, Mass. (PRWEB) August 22, 2013 -- Public and private sector organizations with responsibility for protecting their systems against increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks can learn strategies and real world examples on how to build a sustainable and successful program with a free live webinar featuring Larry Brock, President of Brock Consulting and former Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) at DuPont. The webinar is hosted by Verdasys and will be held Thurs., August 29, 2013, at 10 a.m. ET/3:00 GMT and 2 p.m. ET. To register, go to: http://www..verdasys.com/l/17352/2013-07-26/bj22y.
Brock is president of Brock Cyber Consulting and an expert on designing effective strategies for detecting, preventing, containing and investigating advanced cyber attacks. He was with DuPont for more than 30 years, most recently as CISO, and previously served as Information Security Officer within the U.S. Air Force assigned to the National Security Agency.
"The Center for Strategic and International Studies recently released a report on 'The Economic Impact of Cybercrime and Cyber Espionage' estimating over 500,000 US jobs have been lost as a result of malicious cyber activity," said Brock. "Security pros and business leaders that want to turn this tide can take critical steps now, such as creating security awareness and threat intelligence programs and incorporating technologies for securing outbound data and credentials. These approaches are proving successful in real-world implementations every day, confirming that with proactive prevention it is infinitely possible to protect sensitive information and enable users to be productive."

• Create an “education culture” across the organization that minimizes attack risk
