10 Ways to Protect your Company from a Data Breach
As a result of the recent spate of high-profile data breaches at brand name retailers, compromising credit and debit card and other personally identifiable information for hundreds of millions of consumers in the process, data security has become priority No. 1 for many retailers in 2014. And for good reason: The consequences of suffering a data breach are numerous, and none of them are positive — consumer mistrust, a drop in traffic and a decrease in sales, to name just a few.
With retailers recently testifying before Congress that they’re facing increasingly sophisticated threats from cyber criminals, and no end to those in sight, it’s become apparent that your company needs to implement strategies that will protect itself from a costly data breach. Here are 10 ways you can more easily achieve that goal while maintaining required PCI compliance (all of these tips fall within one of five buckets — visibility; asset control; enforcement; trust policy; advance measurement.)
Join Bit9 at INTERFACE-Atlanta TOMORROW, April 2nd in Booth 209!
Bit9 will be presenting The Evolution of Endpoint Security: Detecting & Responding to Malware Across the Entire Kill Chain at 1:50pm in Theater 2.
“The volume of malware produced and potentially infecting organizations has multiplied by orders of magnitude. The scope of the threat, in conjunction with little to no innovation by traditional security vendors, has left organizations vulnerable. The time is NOW to expand security infrastructures to include detection and response capabilities that allow you to fully scope, contain and remediate each threat in real-time on endpoints and servers. Join Bit9 to discuss the emergence of endpoint malware and the new class of security solutions that can detect threats early and across more points in the kill chain.”
