CoreTrace Discusses Cybersecurity Incident Reporting and Achieving NERC Compliance at Technology Conference

Application Whitelisting Extends Security Beyond Reactive Event Logging to Proactive Enforcement

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - August 11, 2009) - CoreTrace, the pioneer of client-based application whitelisting technology, today announced that Robert Huffman, VP of business development for CoreTrace, will discuss new techniques for meeting and exceeding NERC CIP compliance standards with application whitelisting at the Technology Conference. Presented by EMC Technologies LLC, the August 13 session will specifically examine NERC CIP-008, which sets standards for cybersecurity incident reporting and response planning, including clear documentation of incidents in searchable and reportable formats for a minimum of three calendar years.

What: Compliance can be a daunting task to say the least. By preventing all unauthorized applications from running, application whitelisting solutions like BOUNCER by CoreTrace are providing the proactive enforcement needed to meet compliance requirements around anti-malware and configuration control. Security Event Information Management (SEIM) systems can be used to provide information to document regulatory compliance. Learn how application whitelisting and SEIM can be used to achieve CIP and PCI compliance. The session will also answer to the scary question... If I am audited what information do I need to prove I am compliant?

Who: Robert Huffman, VP of business development for CoreTrace

When: Thursday, August 13, 2009

11:15 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. ET

Where: Kingston Plantation, Myrtle Beach South Carolina
