CAMPBELL, Calif., December 3, 2014— ForeScout Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of pervasive network security solutions for Global 2000 enterprises and government organizations, announced that Phil Gibson, chair, PSN industry association and director, Avoca Associates; Bruce Wright, connectivity technician consultant at South East CSU and Jan Hof, director of international marketing at ForeScout, will participate in a new webinar entitled “Managing Risk and Protecting Information Assets: Experiences from the UK Public Sector and Healthcare Industry.”
Though IT professionals across every industry in the UK face critical security issues around privacy of sensitive customer information, BYOD and network access, those in the public sector and healthcare industries need to comply with additional specific security regulations. Governmental organizations participating in the Public Services Network (PSN), and healthcare organizations need to meet stringent requirements around the secure transmission of sensitive data, and in both industries, IT teams must maintain continuous visibility and control over managed and personally-owned devices on the network to ensure that customer information is secure.
This webinar assembles an expert panel of participants encompassing both the public sector and healthcare industries in the UK to provide insights and technology solutions to mitigate these security challenges. Participants will discuss:
- Mandatory requirements for a next-generation security architecture, and effective ways to control managed and mobile devices accessing PSN and healthcare networks;
- How integrated technology solutions can be used to solve the specific issues in each sector,
- Results of a recent IDG survey that reveals each sector’s security confidence.
