LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 29, 2014) - Securonix will showcase its security intelligence platform as a Gold Sponsor and presenter at the 2014 FS-ISAC & BITS Annual Summit, to be held May 4-7 in Amelia Island, Florida.
The Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) is an association comprised of financial institution members, dedicated to protecting the global financial services sector from physical and cyber threats. The Annual Summit presents the latest information on cyber security related threats, trends, and technology, with an expected attendance of more than 500 industry executives and practitioners including CISOs, CSOs, CIOs, CTOs and other top security, technology and business executives.
In the session "Security Analytics and Insider Threat -- Why Should You Care and Real Life Implementations," Chris Inglis, recently retired Deputy Director of the NSA, who has dealt with one of the biggest insider threat attacks in the history of the U.S., will talk about his first hand experiences and recommendations in addressing the threat. Inglis will be followed by the CISO of a global investment brokerage firm and a senior risk management leader from a leading global financial services company discussing their security analytics and insider threat implementations and programs. Sachin Nayyar, CEO of Securonix, will introduce the panelists and the topic.
"Attackers are targeting legitimate accounts to steal data and traditional firewall controls are ineffective. Security Analytics is increasingly becoming mainstream to detect today's advanced attacks. We have spent the better part of the last decade in combining signature-less behavioral models with signature based techniques and are getting phenomenal success in detecting threats posed by Insiders and Hackers. It is imperative that the industry share their experience in the use of Security Analytics to detect and prevent security threats. We are pleased to bring this stellar panel of experts together for the FS-ISAC audience," said Sachin Nayyar, CEO of Securonix.
In order to realistically address insider threats, financial organizations need better capabilities in such areas as context-based monitoring, advanced behavior anomaly detection, and link-analysis driven forensic investigation. Securonix's sophisticated security analytics solution provides these capabilities and more.
