Princeton, NJ, February 09, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Information Security Media Group (ISMG), publisher of BankInfoSecurity, today announces the launch of its latest webinar, "2014 Targeted Attacks Study Survey Results" which will debut February 20th at 1:30 p.m. ET.
Most organizations are doing the right things when it comes to preparing to defend against advanced threats. The majority of them have an internal CSIRT, and they have invested in traditional security solutions such as antivirus, intrusion prevention and encryption. But too many of their employees are not doing the right things, and as a result they are leaving their organizations open to the ravages of targeted attacks such as spear phishing, malvertising and Trojans, threats that succeed only when people enable them to succeed.
Nearly 80 percent of survey respondents expect to receive the same or more budget to defend against advanced threats in the year ahead. And they have plans to invest in advanced security solutions. The "2014 Targeted Attacks Study Survey Results" webinar, sponsored by Proofpoint, addresses the extent of damage caused by targeted attacks, with emphasis on:
-Analysis of where organizations are strongest and weakest in responding to advanced threats;
-Insight into where organizations are investing their security resources in 2014;
-Examples of leading-edge security solutions that can help defend against today's sophisticated attacks.
In addition to delivering an overview of key survey results, this session will include a panel discussion, featuring the Leader Global Product Marketing at Proofpoint, Amar Doshi.
