Webinar on preventing USB attacks

ForeScout Technologies : 16 December, 2008  (Technical Article)
ForeScout is holding a webinar detailing prevention of attacks originating from devices using the USB port
ForeScout Technologies has announced the latest in a series of best-practice network access control webinars focused on how to prevent cyber attacks originating from USBs.

The Threat: The rise in cyber attacks covered in recent front-story news has forced corporate executives and government officials to realise the potential threat caused by common USB thumb drives. In fact, US Defence officials at the Pentagon recently banned the use of external computer flash drives at all government locations around the world.

The Solution: ForeScout is currently working with the Department of Defence (DoD) to identify and disable the use of thumb drives and prevent unauthorised devices from gaining access to their network.

This one-hour discussion presented by ForeScout's Federal security team will include case studies on how Department of Defence agencies and organisations worldwide are using CounterACT and a few best practices to prevent unauthorised devices from gaining network access.

When: Thursday, 18 December 2008 at 3.30pm (GMT)
