Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

Webcast ‘“The problem with making things foolproof is that we keep evolving a better class of fool”, as the old saying goes. And nowhere is this more true than in security where breaches remain regular and commonplace despite all the investment that has gone into it.

Getting to grips with the security challenge is vital, because the increased risks are holding many businesses back from working more flexibly, getting closer to customers and having more integration with their partners and supply chain.

But it’s clear; we need to be thinking of the bigger picture when it comes to protecting users from themselves.

On the 23rd of February we have a studio full of experts ready to talk about just these issues in the hope of getting to the heart of the problem of securing end users and protecting them from their own actions. Tim Phillips from The Register will be your host and he's joined by Andrew Buss from analysts Freeform Dynamics and Chris Boyd from GFI.

The program will take a run through the following topics, each of which will be considered in turn, always whenever possible illustrating points by giving examples of best practice where possible:

Why security is not working

- Rising costs and continuing breaches

- Sensitive information contained on many devices

- User behaviour

Protecting users

- What can we realistically to expect

- Can training help?

- Monitoring and enforcing policy

We’re aiming to provide lots of real world context using examples of how customers in the real world are addressing these matters. If you join us, you can share your experiences too, through a live Q&A, and get answers to any questions you may have.

The event is free and you can register right here.

If you can’t make it on the day, register now and we’ll email you when the recorded version of the event is available for viewing at your leisure. ®
