Top 5 Myths of Data Breaches

  • Brian Kaye, Regional Account Manager, Firemon
  • Wednesday, July 30th, 12:30pm - 1:15pm

With data breaches becoming a daily reality, several myths about their inevitability have developed that need to be dispelled. The technology was the problem. Threats are too sophisticated. External attacks are the main cause. With more attacks at the application layer, network controls are useless. And if I just keep systems patched, breaches could be prevented.

Proactive security management of current cyber defenses can put each of these myths to rest. Your existing firewalls, routers and switches can be more effective immediately with advanced configuration, change and risk management assistance. So no need for the expense and uncertainty of new security technologies. And you maximize the ROI of cybersystems you already own.
