Strategic data breach prevention


A data breach can occur as a result of any number of incidents, from a targeted attack to a missing mobile endpoint to a misconfigured network security device. What should an organization fear most: the worst-case breach scenario, or just the most likely one?

Specific points of emphasis will include:

  • What common methods have proven successful for attackers time and again
  • Why so many organizations ultimately breach themselves
  • How to gauge an organization's risk posture based on key risk factors
  • What key technologies, policies and processes are essential to preventing breaches
