CoreTrace, Encari and GlobalSCAPE to Host Free Webinar Focused on Improving Security and Meeting Key NERC CIP Requirements With Application Whitelisting

Live From the InfoSec World 2010 Conference, Webinar Will Focus on the Performance and Security Benefits of Securing Control Systems With Application Whitelisting

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - April 13, 2010) - CoreTrace, the pioneer of high-security, easy-change application whitelisting technology, Encari, a leading provider of NERC CIP compliance consulting services, and GlobalSCAPE, a leading provider of secure information exchange solutions, announced today they will jointly host a live webinar on Monday, April 19, 2010, at 2 p.m. EDT entitled "Complying with NERC CIP-007: Malicious Software Prevention via Application Whitelisting." The free webinar, to be led by Matthew Luallen, co-founder of Encari, will cover the key points of the thought-provoking whitepaper he co-authored with Paul Feldman, chairman of the Mid-West ISO, entitled "Malicious Software Prevention for NERC CIP-007 Compliance: Protective Controls for Operating Systems and Supporting Applications."

What: The webinar will elaborate on the key points of the whitepaper, including Mr. Luallen's insights and recommendations around topics like the true intention of the NERC CIPs, the shortcomings of using traditional security solutions (e.g., blacklist-based antivirus, emergency security patches) to secure critical assets, and how application whitelisting addresses the operational realities associated with control systems that blacklist-based solutions cannot. Additionally, Mr. Luallen will outline the multiple NERC CIPs that application whitelisting simultaneously helps address, namely NERC CIP-007, R3 (security patching), CIP-007, R4 (anti- malware), and CIP-003, R6 (change control and configuration management).
