Enterprises are entering into a continuous state of compromise, and within this volatile risk market, consequences for organizations that fail to meet their regulatory security guidelines are feeling the pain all the way up the corporate ladder. Within this environment, traditional security controls are no longer sufficient to fully protect your organization. Therefore, IT risk and audit professionals need to understand that simply meeting compliance controls does not equal complete security coverage. By neglecting to pay attention to emerging advanced threat protection solutions and capabilities, a compliant company can still be a vulnerable one. Join Christopher Strand, senior director of compliance at Bit9 + Carbon Black, to understand:

  • The risks and liability organizations and auditors face by not going beyond compliance
  • How to meet and exceed compliance standards with emerging security controls
  • Evaluating emerging security controls within the IT audit process
