Hacked in 276 Seconds: Webinar Demonstrates How to Use Live Threat Intelligence to Prevent Data Breaches

Hosted by Norse, the Live Webinar Will Feature Dr. Larry Ponemon, Author of the Ponemon 2013 Live Threat Intelligence Impact Report

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 20, 2013) - Norse, a leading provider of live threat intelligence solutions, today announced that it will host a live webinar revealing the financial impact that outdated and insufficient threat intelligence is inflicting on global enterprises. Additionally, the webinar will show attendees how organizations are using a new breed of "live" threat intelligence to prevent advanced attacks from developing into costly breaches.

Based on a survey that included 700 respondents from 378 enterprises, the report revealed a number of salient findings that the webinar will present:

  • Enterprises spent an average of $10 million over 12 months to resolve the impact of exploits.
  • If enterprises had actionable intelligence within 60 seconds of a compromise, they could reduce this cost on average by $4 million (40 percent).
  • 60 percent of enterprises were unable to stop exploits because of outdated or insufficient threat intelligence.

In addition to delving into the facts behind slow and outdated threat intelligence, the webinar will show attendees how Norse solutions can be easily deployed via an Application Program Interface (API). Almost immediately, these solutions start to provide live threat intelligence and mitigation controls that can be used to improve enterprise defenses.

"Ponemon Institute has conducted IT security research for over a decade, and this is one of the first studies that reveals the facts behind the impact that weak threat intelligence is having on organizations," said Dr. Larry Ponemon, chairman and founder of Ponemon Institute. "Anyone who reads this report will come to understand that live threat intelligence must be an integral part of any security strategy."
