Mar 20 NSTC Software and IT Forum: Cyber Security in 2012 — Threats and Defenses
2011 was a banner year for security breaches. Attacks ranging from simple to sophisticated and complex stole data from the likes of Sony, RSA, Lockheed Martin, and others. As our IT world evolves and disruptive technologies such as mobile and cloud computing continue to make their way into the enterprise, our attack surface has multiplied. Protecting our critical data starts with understanding how attackers are trying to get at it. This presentation will discuss top cyber threats for 2012 and mitigations you can deploy to protect yourself and your organization’s data. We will also discuss new research from The Ponemon Institute — a survey of nearly 1,000 IT professionals analyzing security risks, data breaches, and counter-measures.
