SANS WhatWorks in Data Leakage Prevention & Encryption Summit 2009
Venue: Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel
|Event Date/Time: Sep 14, 2009||End Date/Time: Aug 15, 2009|
Every year, many companies must confess the disclosure of their customers' credit card and Social Security numbers in the media, which is not only enormously embarrassing and harmful in itself but invites lawsuits and FTC crackdown for lax security. And in a recession when cash-strapped companies are going out of business every day, a severe intellectual property theft can lead to lost sales or the covert transfer of valuable trade secrets to one's competitors.
At the SANS Data Leakage Summit, you'll hear from managers who have actually implemented data leakage prevention tools and strategies in their own organizations. They will talk about what works, what isn't worth the money, unexpected problems, and hard-won advice on how to make your own DLP projects a success. Lessons learned include whole drive encryption products and content monitoring/filtering (CMF) applications to detect/stop confidential data leakage. Throughout the presentations, you can ask questions of the managers to follow up.
At the Summit you will also hear from some of the most respected software and hardware DLP vendors as they answer questions and debate the merits of each other's products. During these panel shootouts, attendees can ask questions of the vendors to get them to explain exactly why their solution is best (and if the other vendors agree).
Summit speakers also include industry experts on general topics such as legal liability, regulatory compliance, and technical analysis of DLP vulnerabilities and solutions. So you'll hear from all three types of participants: implementers, vendors and neutral experts.
You will leave the Summit with concrete, actionable information which you can deploy as soon as you return to work.
