What to Expect

Join us for an interactive discussion on how to level up your database-encryption and protect your endpoints against today's attackers, as well as learn best practices for Vulnerability Remediation from Industry Security Experts.

Osserman Research reports 84% of US organizations experienced either a phishing or ransomware attack in 2021.  

Ransomware is a vicious type of malware that cybercriminals use to lock-up (encrypt) any company or individual's computer files, which the attackers promise to unlock for a ransom payment. More recently, some ransomware groups have stolen sensitive data and after payment sold or released the data for double extortion.

Come learn how IBM Guardium Encryption with access control proactively addresses Ransomware attacks and strengthens your data security posture.

HCL BigFix automates discovery, management, and remediation of all endpoints whether on-premises, mobile, virtual, or in the cloud - regardless of the operating system, location, or connectivity. With BigFix, you can manage every endpoint. During the event we will highlight BigFix Insights for Vulnerability Remediation and how it integrates BigFix with sources of vulnerability data. The purpose is to guide users on how to apply the best patch and configuration settings to remediate discovered vulnerabilities, and thus reduce risk and improve security.

Learn how Insights for Vulnerability Remediation uses advanced correlation algorithms to aggregate and process the vulnerability data with information from BigFix to drive analytics reports and facilitates remediation by recommending the latest available patches for the discovered vulnerabilities.

Join us on June 30th at 5:00 PM EST and enjoy appetizers and some of the best drinks in town.
