Delivering Situational Awareness - Putting the Critical Security Controls to Work
- Brian Mehlman , Senior Director of Product Management, EiQ Networks
- Monday, August 5th, 12:30pm - 1:15pm
Organizations of all sizes, and across almost every industry, face significant challenges protecting critical IT assets from an exponentially increasing threat landscape. And, of course, serious vulnerabilities continue to be discovered in both legacy and emerging IT systems. Many security programs have focused too much on compliance reporting and not enough on implementing effective security controls that have been shown to significantly reduce the risk of information breach.
In this session, Brian Mehlman, Senior Director of Product Management, at EiQ Networks, will discuss an approach for delivering simplified security intelligence through security control automation. He will also provide a case study on how EiQâs flagship solution, SecureVueÂ®, can increase information security, improve operational efficiency, and lower cost for an organization through automation of many of the top Critical Security Controls recommended by SANS.
The following bonus sessions are open to all paid attendees at no additional cost. There are many different types of events that fall into these categories:
- SANS@Night: Evening presentations given after day courses have ended. This category includes Keynotes.
- Special Events: SANS-hosted events and other non-technical recreational offerings. This category includes, but is not limited to, Receptions and Information Tables.
- Vendor: Events hosted by external vendor exhibitors.
- Lunch & Learn: Short presentations given during the lunch break.
