Security research for CIOs – enhancing proactive security strategies presented at ITWeb 2014

by Greg Sinclair,

Summary : With reports of network breaches and data losses consistently making the news, it's clear that 2014 will be another record year for cyber intrusions, keeping security as a topic in every corporation's boardroom and in every government agency. Today's infosec professionals face organised and determined adversaries as they implement new initiatives and strive to achieve the optimal risk-based security posture for their organisations.
This presentation examines findings from IBM Security Research, which CISOs can use to enhance their proactive security strategies. The research was compiled through real time security event analytics across 3 700 global clients from January to December 2013, and its web-based categorization engine (which is the third largest webcrawler in the world after Google and Bing), and one of the largest vulnerability databases available. The discussion here will also help attendees understand the security practices that can address these risks. less
