Bit9 + Carbon Black Free Webinar: 'How Retailers Can Avoid the Black Friday Blues'

WALTHAM, Mass., Oct. 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bit9® + Carbon Black®, the leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection and response, is sponsoring the free webinar "How Retailers Can Avoid the Black Friday Blues" on Wednesday November 5, 2014, at 3:30 p.m. EST.

A repeat session of this webinar will take place on Monday November 17, 2014, at 3:30 p.m. EST.

A number of high-profile retailers experienced breaches during the 2013 holiday season, which led to unprecedented repercussions such as brand damage, increased audit scrutiny and loss of market share. Increased transaction volumes and staff distractions, coupled with system holiday freeze periods, can leave your systems exposed, potentially giving "Black Friday" a whole new meaning.

So how can your organization stay out of the headlines as the 2014 holiday season kicks into high gear?

Join us for an interactive discussion of security approaches that can help retailers maintain continuous vigilance over your cardholder environments in this constant state of compromise. We'll dig into ways your organization can prepare for a breach, including developing a robust response strategy.

Finally, we'll look ahead toward 2015 and explore proactive steps retailers need to take to stay compliant and secure.

Attend this webinar and learn:

  • Best practices for responding to a breach
  • Why it's critical to shift from system scanning and periodic monitoring to continuous security—as well as how to do it
  • About the PCI community's evolving perspective on retail technology (hint: there is no silver bullet)
  • How to combat increased threats in the face of overextended systems and extreme volume
