Business Issues -> Security & Risk
Released: 4th September 2013
Company to join DGI and Cisco to deliver complimentary webinar for government organisations
London, August 28, 2013 – Lancope, Inc., a leader in network visibility and security intelligence, will join the Digital Government Institute (DGI) and Cisco on Thursday, Sept. 5 to present a free webinar on how to detect cyber threats from inside the network. Amidst today’s threat landscape, governments can no longer just rely on perimeter defenses to protect their critical assets and data.
“Sophisticated attackers are increasingly evading conventional defenses and infiltrating government networks,” said Tom Albert, vice president of business development for Lancope. “Not to mention the rising threat posed by insiders who already have valid access credentials. The only way to detect today’s advanced cyber-attacks is to have in-depth visibility into what is going on inside the network to swiftly detect anomalies that could indicate risk.”
Join Lancope and Cisco to learn how to uncover suspicious behavior inside the network and protect against next-generation threats:
WHO: Peter Romness, Cybersecurity Business Development Manager, Cisco
Tom Albert, Vice President, Business Development, Lancope
WHAT: “Squash Cyber Breaches: Detect Odd Behavior from the Inside of the Network”
WHEN: Thursday, September 5, 2:00 p.m. U.S. Pacific time (10pm UK time)
