CMT Presents Data Loss Prevention Learning Sessions

"Anatomy of a Breach" Panels Focus on Risk Factors and Defense Against Data Breach for Chief Risk Officers and Chief Information Officers

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - August 18, 2009) - CMT today announced it will host informative sessions on data loss prevention (DLP) as part of a road-show series designed to provide CIOs and CISOs with practical knowledge of the primary defenses against data breach including DLP, endpoint protection, host intrusion detection systems (HIDS) and security information and event management (SIEM).

"Data breach is one of the most critical security challenges that enterprises face today," said CMT President and CEO Kurt Klein. "Protecting the perimeter is no longer enough. CIOs and CISOs need to understand how to implement integrated countermeasures that defend against today's most serious attacks rather than just individual point solutions."

CMT's "Anatomy of a Breach" sessions feature a panel discussion with Kevin Rowney, founder of Vontu, the data loss prevention company that was acquired by Symantec in 2007. Rowney will provide an overview of trends, causes and circumstances of data breach and discuss the underlying risk factors involved in large scale breaches. A CMT certified DLP expert and a current customer utilizing Symantec Data Loss Prevention as part of CMT's Absolute Management™ practice will also sit on the panel.

CMT has added three "Anatomy of a Breach" sessions to its schedule including:

--  Wednesday, Sept. 2, 2009 at 5:30 p.m. in Costa Mesa, Calif.
--  Wednesday, Oct. 28, 2009 at 5:30 p.m. in Bellevue, Wash. (during
    SecureWorld Expo Seattle)
--  October event planned in Scottsdale, Ariz.
