Palisade Systems and Aberdeen Research to Present "Successful IT Security Initiatives: A Pragmatic Approach" Webinar

Aberdeen Research Will Discuss Their Recent Study Analyzing 600 Organizations' Use of Data Loss Prevention Technologies on February 8th at 1 pm ET

DES MOINES, IA--(Marketwire - Jan 31, 2012) - Palisade Systems, an industry leader in Data Security and Data Loss Prevention (DLP) markets, announced today a complementary webinar with Aberdeen Research titled "Successful IT Security Initiatives: A Pragmatic Approach" on February 8, 2012 at 1 pm ET. The webinar will be presented by Derek Brink, vice president and research fellow for IT Security from the Aberdeen Group, and Mike Lough, vice president of marketing for Palisade Systems.

"The most recent and headline-grabbing data breaches continue to demonstrate that every industry, including government, healthcare, retail, financial services, and education is experiencing frequent and damaging data breaches that are exposing millions of sensitive consumers records and putting companies reputations and financial exposure at risk," said Spencer Snedecor, CEO of Palisade Systems. "Our webinar with Aberdeen Group will help companies learn how successful IT security initiatives can easily mitigate risk and protect their sensitive data, wherever it flows."

During the webinar, attendees will learn how beginning a data loss prevention initiative in a passive, monitor-and-notify mode provides valuable visibility and insight into the current flow of information throughout the extended enterprise, and reduces the likelihood of inadvertently bringing the flow of information and the business itself to a halt. They will also hear how, as these initiatives mature, successful organizations automate their policies and controls to put the "P" (Prevention) in DLP without disrupting the business.

This webinar is ideal for business and technology leaders responsible for the information security of their business, including CEO, CIO, CISO, CSO and IT leadership titles for healthcare, financial services, education, and government entities.

By attending the webinar, attendees will learn:

  • Best practices for securing sensitive data
  • Strategic security results from more than 600 organizations surveyed by Aberdeen Research
  • How to find the right data security fit for your organization
  • What role data security should play in your organization
