Ipswitch, Inc. to Host STORES Magazine Webinar: Will Your Business Be the Next Data Breach Headline?

Rick Gallagher of STORES Magazine to Moderate Discussion With Founder of PCI Knowledge Base and Ipswitch's VP of Product Development

LEXINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - April 21, 2008) - Ipswitch File Transfer Division, a developer of secure and managed file transfer solutions, today announced it will host a free Webinar titled, "Will Your Business be the Next Data Breach Headline?" Over 100 million files fall victim to security breaches each year in a variety of different ways -- through external hacker breaches, network security lapses, insecure data in motion transfers -- they have one thing in common: a too casual approach to data protection. This Webinar will cover the assessment of security breach risks and the fundamental questions that need to be answered in order to create a solid defense.

This Webinar will address questions such as:

--  Who has access to your sensitive files and data?
--  What is the impact if your sensitive company information is
--  When and what is the information being exchanged?
--  Where and to whom is your data being sent?
--  Why would you let employees/partners share your files over insecure
    FTP, email or IM?
--  How does regulatory compliance affect the way your data needs to be
    handled and audited?
