CUPERTINO, Calif., March 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 20 Critical Security Controls have already had a profound and far-reaching impact on government agencies and enterprises, allowing those responsible for compliance and those responsible for security to agree, for the first time, on what needs to be done to make systems safer. How can you align your network access control (NAC) strategy with the 20 Security Controls? This is the topic of an upcoming webcast hosted by the SANS Institute and sponsored by ForeScout Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of real-time network security control solutions for Fortune 1000 enterprises and government organizations.
Expert speakers G. Mark Hardy, president of National Security Corporation, Brian Meyer, information security officer at Meritrust Credit Union, and Scott Gordon, vice president of worldwide marketing at ForeScout Technologies will answer attendee questions and discuss:
-- IT governance
-- Risk management and compliance (GRC) assumptions
-- Control challenges
-- NAC use cases
The "NAC Applied to the Critical Security Controls" webcast will be held on April 3, at 1p.m. EDT (1700 UTC/GMT). Those that register for the webcast by visiting https://www.sans.org/webcasts/nac-applied-critical-security-controls-96327 will be among the first to receive a new SANS analyst whitepaper on the subject.
Given the diversity and proliferation of smart consumer devices in the workplace and the trend for enterprises to take advantage of wireless, cloud and mobile applications, next generation NAC has evolved beyond its namesake to become an integral component to effectuate visibility, asset intelligence and integrity and network security controls. The expert/user session will explore how today's NAC can align with many of the 20 Critical Security Controls, particularly in regards to monitoring, configuration, mobility and access.
Additionally, a SANS Institute webcast, "Architecting a Flexible Strategy for Securing Enterprise and Personal Mobile Devices (BYOD)," featuring IDC analyst Phil Hochmuth and ForeScout's Scott Gordon (CISSP) will be held on April 18 at 1 p.m. ET.
