BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ObserveIT, the leader in user activity monitoring, and the SANS Institute will host a live panel discussion on Thursday, March 26, 2015 at 1 p.m. ET. The panel titled, “The Risk of Data Exposure through Application Usage,” will explore best practices to address this growing risk and how to prevent company data exposure through core application access and usage.
Moderated by Michael Santarcangelo, columnist for CSO Online, the live panel will focus on the current enterprise environment, where the large majority of users who access data through everyday enterprise applications pose significant and unaddressed risk. Often application users’ actions are hidden in the large volume of data generated through normal user activities. Companies across a variety of industries rely on core applications that can access their sensitive data (e.g. call center applications, financial systems, EHR, POS, CRM, Claims processing), but these applications are not as monitored or secured as their data storage infrastructures. Once employees login to these core applications, many organizations have no idea what they are doing.
Panel Participants include:
- Peter Hesse, CSO, 10Pearls
- David Monahan, Research Director, Risk Management & Security, Enterprise Management Associates (EMA)
- Gabriel Friedlander, CTO, ObserveIT
Each panelist will provide key insights and helpful tips on how to make your organization more secure and reduce the risk of data breaches, fraudulent activities and other insider threats.
In addition to hosting the live panel, ObserveIT has released the eBook, “Mitigating you Biggest Security Risk: Your Business Users.” The eBook offers readers an in depth look into the types of business users within the enterprise and activities that put every enterprise at risk.
