Forescout Sponsors Network World CISO Webcast “Mitigating Modern Attacks”

Cupertino, Calif. — December 1, 2011 — Cyber criminals are more advanced and organized – outgunning traditional countermeasures. The question is no longer “if” your enterprise will face a modern attack, but “when” will it? With intrusion detection, anti-virus, and gateway filtering defenses unable to keep up with the velocity, polymorphism and sophistication of attacks, enterprises are helplessly hoping that they will not be the next victim. What can commercial and government IT organizations do to alleviate risks, coordinate defenses and protect themselves from modern cyber-attacks?


A new Network World webcast, “CISO in the Know – Mitigating Modern Attacks: Zero-day, Low&Slow and APTs,” answers these questions and examines the sophisticated and targeted threats, security gaps, defensive techniques and new technologies with regards to understanding and defending against zero-day threats, propagating worms, slow-and-low attacks and advanced persistent threats (APT). The webcast will be hosted by Bill Sieglein, founder of the CISO Executive Network, along with a panel including Tim Mather, advisory director at KPMG Information Protection; Scott Gordon, vice president at Forescout Technologies; and Waqas Akkawi, director of information security at SIRVA, Inc.


This Network World “CISO in the Know” webcast is sponsored by Forescout, a leading provider of automated security control solutions.  Forescout invites users and the media to register for the webcast: Click here to register.
