Delivering Situational Awareness - Putting the Critical Security Controls to Work
- Brian Mehlman, Senior Director of Product Management, EiQ Networks
- Tuesday, September 17th, 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.
Brian Mehlman has over 20 years' experience working in senior technical, product marketing and management positions with innovative and industry leading software companies. Prior to EiQ Networks, Brian helped deliver solutions in the areas of Network, Systems, Storage and Security management for Q1 Labs, Network Appliance, 3COM Corporation, Fidelity Investments and Hewlett Packard. Brian played an integral role in two successful acquisitions: Metrix Network Systems by Hewlett Packard and Webmanage Technologies by Network Appliance. Brian earned a bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Mathematics from Gordon College, and a Master's degree in Computer Science from the University of Vermont.
