Bit9 + Carbon Black Free Webinar: "Incident Response--How Can We Be More Proactive for the Future?"

WALTHAM, Mass., Aug. 18, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bit9® + Carbon Black®, the leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection and response, is sponsoring the free webinar "Incident Response—How Can We Be More Proactive for the Future?" on Thursday, August 20, 2015, at 1:00 p.m. EDT.

Incident response is a hot topic among the SANS audience. In the SANS 2014 survey on incident response, only nine percent of organizations felt their incident response processes were "very effective," yet the majority of respondents operated under the assumption that they will be breached. This webcast will focus on what is and isn't working for incident responders, what they can do about it, and how they can become more proactive in responding to incidents.

Presenters, including Justin Falck, technical product manager of Carbon Black, will discuss:

- How incident responders can be more proactive in their policies and practices.
- What resources responders wish they had to improve their ability to respond to incidents efficiently and effectively.

Survey results reveal an increasingly complex response landscape and the need for automation of processes and services to provide both visibility across systems and best avenues of remediation.

Read this paper for coverage of these issues, along with best practices and sage advice.
