It's official: The long-awaited and much-hyped IoT 'perfect storm' has arrived. But, unlike the noise and furor of a hurricane, this storm is hidden from plain sight - quietly infiltrating and covertly inflicting damage like an enormous infestation of termites. Alas, with an estimated 8.4 billion IoT devices today, extermination is not an option. Without a new approach, a massive enterprise security breach is only a matter of time -- not "if" but "when" -- and the damage may already underway.  

Join us for a ground-breaking webinar, Taming the IoT Infestation in your Enterprise: 5 Easy Steps and 1 Innovative Approach to Establishing a Resilient and Scalable Endpoint Security Strategy.  Over the course of this 60-minute webinar, two security IT experts -- John Pescatore, SANS Emerging Security Trends Director, and Ty Powers of Great Bay Software -- will walk you through an actionable plan to efficiently shore up your enterprise IoT strategy. Participants will come away with strong understanding and a clear set of next steps... steps that are proven to deliver the visibility and control needed to mitigate IoT risk in companies of all sizes. There will be time for Q&A.

Who should attend? This webinar is designed for enterprise security and network infrastructure leaders who:

  • Are serious about driving real IoT security - not just checking a box
  • Work in high-risk industries, such as finance, healthcare, manufacturing, utilities, and retail, among many others...
  • Need to find an alternative to deploying NAC or want to improve their existing NAC
  • Are responsible for security or network infrastructure in a company with as few as 50 employees or in enterprises with 50,000+ employees
  • Report to a CISO/CIO who is increasingly concerned about mitigating IoT risk
