OVERLAND PARK, KS -- (Marketwired) -- 08/06/13 -- As data breaches have become a seemingly daily reality, several myths have been popularized that address their origin and prevention. Unfortunately, these misconceptions often obscure a clear path to increased security and better risk management. Debunking these myths is a critical step in improving security efficiency and effectiveness.
In order to help enterprises and government agencies better understand and address the true risks to their organizations, FireMon, the leading provider of security management and risk analysis solutions, will host a webcast titled "Top 5 Myths of Data Breaches" on Wednesday, August 7 at 2:00 p.m. EDT. During the webinar, Tim Woods, VP of Customer Technical Services at FireMon will address the most common myths including:
- Most threats and attacks originate externally and are very sophisticated
- Network controls are useless with more attacks now occurring at the application layer
- Current network security technology is slow, old and obsolete (or all three)
- Breaches are inevitable so the focus should be on response (rather than prevention)
- Patching systems is sufficient enough to thwart all breaches
Additionally, Mr. Woods will explore the best-practice proactive measures that enterprises and government organizations can take to improve their network security posture, including real-time configuration, change and risk management of firewalls, routers and switches that improves the effectiveness of those devices, and optimizes their investments in those security assets.
