Prevent Data Breaches - Moving to a Modern Approach to Breach Avoidance in Three Steps

The history of IT Security is only a generation old, yet the direction of the arms race has already changed completely several times. Initially, perimeter-based security – firewalls and anti-virus software – played the most important role at organizations. By the beginning of the new millennium the focus of security turned to identity-based solutions but IAM has also been shown not to be a silver bullet to protect against breaches.

The chances of getting breached seem to grow daily and could quickly become your company’s worst nightmare.

This webinar will look at some of the recent high profile breaches, their common failings, outcomes and points to note.

In this KuppingerCole webinar, you will learn about the three steps for moving to a modern approach to breach avoidance, mitigation and response:

  • How to define your risk appetite
  • Calculating the ROI on security solutions
  • Planning for the breach

In the first part, Paul Simmonds, Fellow Analyst at KuppingerCole, will look at the companies and organizations that have been breached in recent times and give more details of the history, issues and solutions to consider when looking at how to mitigate a breach.
