How Security Breaches Happen -- And What You Can Do About It

Join Dark Reading/InformationWeek virtual event Thursday for firsthand insight on security breaches
More than ever, today's headlines are filled with the names of major companies that have suffered the effects of very damaging -- and very public -- security breaches. With so much at stake -- and so many security resources available -- why do enterprises continue to be compromised?

Dark Reading and InformationWeek on Thursday will hold an all-day online virtual conference that features top speakers to discuss this complex question.

During this all-day virtual event, we will look at the causes and mistakes that lead to security breaches, both from the technology perspective and from the people perspective. We will offer insights from those who have seen breaches firsthand -- including IT executives from Heartland Payment Systems and Pacific Northwest National Labs -- as well as those who study breaches and vulnerabilities, including one of the authors of the Verizon Business Data Breach Investigation Report. And we'll provide information and recommendations on processes and technologies that can help keep your organization out of the headlines.

This virtual event will cover topics such as the causes of security breaches, investigation and incident response, breach remediation, and practices for ensuring that a breach will not happen again. Attendees will get insights on how to prevent breaches from happening, how to research and identify the source of a breach, and how to remediate a compromise as quickly and efficiently as possible. We will also discuss basic issues surrounding breach disclosure and liability, as well as notification rules and practices.

Please join us for this special event. You'll be glad you did!
