Webcast sheds light on data breach investigations

Guardium : 28 October, 2009  (Company News)
Guardium and Verizon provide information on 2009 breach investigations and highlight best practices for avoiding them during Webcast
Guardium, the database security company, is sponsoring a Webcast with Dark Reading on Wednesday, October 28 at 2 pm ET, featuring Verizon Business managing principal of investigative response, Chris Novak, and Guardium's vice president of security strategy, Phil Neray. The 60-minute session will detail emerging critical trends in data theft and illustrate proven strategies for increasing data-level security against modern cybercriminals.

According to the 2009 Verizon Business' Data Breach Investigations Report -- based on data analyzed from Verizon Business' actual caseload of 90 confirmed breaches involving 285 million compromised records -- revealed that corporations fell victim to some of the largest cybercrimes ever during 2008. The financial sector accounted for 93 percent of all such records compromised last year, and a staggering 90 percent of these records involved groups identified by law enforcement as engaged in organized crime.

Additionally, most records compromised in 2008 were from online assets. Despite widespread concern over desktops, mobile devices, portable media and the like, 99 percent of all breached records were compromised from servers and applications. Seventy-five percent of all breached records came from compromised database servers.

Novak will share insights from the report's key findings, including:

* Top causes for data breaches
* Cybercriminals' use of "anti-forensics" to cover their tracks
* The importance of PCI compliance
* Best practices for protecting critical databases against organized crime and other cyberattacks

Neray will describe how Guardium's real-time database monitoring technology protects against cyberattacks and insider threats. He will also present detailed case studies of enterprises that have implemented database activity monitoring (DAM) and their ROI.

As part of the event, 25 attendees will receive a complimentary copy of "How to Secure and Audit Oracle 10g and 11g" (CRC Press, 2009) by database expert Ron Ben Natan, PhD, CTO of Guardium.

Novak is a founding member of Verizon Business' Investigative Response Team and a senior investigator with more than 10 years of experience investigating both civil and criminal computer-based breaches. He has led dozens of tactical response cases in the past 18 months and continues to respond to high-profile cases worldwide. Novak works closely with state and federal law enforcement agencies on investigations, and also supports international ministries of defense.

Neray has more than 20 years of technology experience. He was previously senior director of worldwide strategic marketing for Symantec's Application and Infrastructure Management business unit.
