The constant threat of a breach is on every security professional's radar but what's actually going on to prevent and detect breaches? Does it pay to spend money on prevention? What overall system and security lifecycle practices are working - and which ones aren't?
SANS surveyed practitioners in its community who self-identified as having experienced an incident or breach and interviewed leading security analysts and experts at large enterprises across the U.S. This webcast will present survey data that examines the current data breach environment to discover how many breaches have been prevented in recent months and how many times data exfiltration was prevented.
Attendees will learn not only when and how breaches have been prevented but also:
- The impact on an organization's people, processes and technology
- Indicators of compromise
- How organizations define success of data prevention activities.
