Agiliance and Deloitte Team Up to Host Webinar Highlighting Best Practices for Implementing Highly-Effective Security Strategies

During the Web Event, 'The Business Benefits of a Risk-Based Approach to Security,' Industry Experts Provide Insight on Developing a Comprehensive Vulnerability Management Program That Addresses the Rapidly Evolving Nature of Risks

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - March 16, 2010) -   Agiliance Inc., the leading independent provider of integrated Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced that it will host a live Webinar with Deloitte & Touche, LLP titled "The Business Benefits of a Risk-Based Approach to Security" on March 18, 2010 at 2:00 PM EDT. The event will feature industry experts from Deloitte and Agiliance who will leverage their insight to educate organizations on implementing a highly-effective risk-based security strategy that directly supports business objectives, allowing enterprises to define actionable steps to minimize risk.

Cybercrime innovation and techniques have outpaced traditional security models. Today's cyber-criminals are increasingly adept at gaining undetected access and maintaining a persistent, low-profile, long term presence in IT environments. Their tools and techniques are increasing in sophistication and becoming more aggressive. In addition, an underground economy has evolved around stealing, packaging and reselling information, making cybercrime a critical, widespread issue. Many organizations underestimate the scope and severity of the problem.

Security professionals no longer 'just secure' the enterprise; they are also tasked with ensuring that the organization's security posture supports an acceptable level of business risk approved by the Board. Record levels of threats also require security organizations to deploy scalable operational strategies that are driven by risk and business impact. Because of these factors, implementing a risk-based approach to security is crucial in order to guarantee ongoing business success.

The interactive session will feature distinguished speakers John Clark and Sharon Chand from Deloitte & Touche, LLP as well as Ed King, Agiliance VP of marketing and product management. During the Webinar, they will share best practices and information on the following:

  • Methods to assess how your organization is viewed by cyber-criminals -- attack vectors
  • Ways to protect yourself against attack -- key components of an effective vulnerability plan, operationalize and make it actionable
  • How to implement a risk-based approach focused on the priority of IT assets
  • Key business benefits of an effective vulnerability management program and measuring success
  • Case Study of a Fortune 200 company

"With the level of threats increasing in both volume and sophistication, enterprise organizations will find it nearly impossible to maintain their security posture without implementing a highly intuitive risk-based vulnerability management plan," said Ed King, Agiliance VP of marketing and product management. "This Webinar will serve to educate organizations on the constantly evolving threat landscape and provide useful insight on implementing a robust security strategy that prevents attacks, supports business objectives and ensures overall company success."
