WALTHAM, Mass., Aug. 8, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bit9® + Carbon Black®, the leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection and response, is sponsoring the free webinar "Incident Response: Growing and Maturing An IR Capability" on Friday, August 15, 2014, at 1:00 p.m. EDT.
Security practitioners find themselves thinking a lot these days about incident response. A new SANS survey project, an outgrowth of the many recent data breaches and attacks plaguing enterprises large and small, asks IT professionals about the steps they take immediately following a breach discovery and how successful those steps really are.
The webcast will examine how organizations can develop and sustain an IR capabilities and also provide insight into incident response plans, attack histories, where organizations should focus their response efforts, and how to put all of the pieces together. Expert speakers include Ben Johnson, chief evangelist for Bit9 + Carbon Black. Johnson was cofounder and CTO of Carbon Black, which merged with Bit9 in February 2014.
The discussion will include key findings concerning respondents' incident response wish lists and actionable takeaways from both respondents and SANS experts with deep IR experience.
Register for this webinar to gain a new, research-based approach to endpoint security.
