PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tripwire, Inc., a global provider of risk-based security and compliance management solutions, today announced a new web seminar on the SANS 20 Critical Security Controls (20 CSC).
The 20 CSC was developed by the National Security Agency (NSA) to provide guidance that would efficiently direct resources to combat the most common network vulnerabilities and reduce the greatest number of attack vectors. Although the initiative was originally classified, access to this security control-prioritization strategy was eventually extended to other government entities as well as administrators of critical infrastructure.
As the 20 CSC controls developed into best practices, they were made available to a wider variety of stakeholders charged with protecting sensitive data and systems. The standards, which have a strong emphasis on standardization and automation, now offer a prioritized list of controls that have the greatest impact on improving security posture against real-world threats.
Join Jane Lute, former deputy secretary of Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and president and CEO of the Council on Cybersecurity, a new nonprofit focused on accelerating the widespread availability and adoption of effective measures in cybersecurity to achieve and sustain cyberspace security, and Rod Murchison, vice president of product management for Tripwire, security strategist and inventor of several network and security patents, for a webinar covering recent changes in the direction of 20 CSC and how they will affect cybersecurity in the public and private sectors.
The webinar entitled “Cybersecurity Awareness and the 20 CSC" will discuss:
- The Council on Cybersecurity’s plans to update and improve 20 CSC to ease adoption
- Profiles of the current ‘threat actors’ and how the 20 CSC can help thwart the most common threats
- What public and private sector organizations can gain from upcoming Council on Cybersecurity events
The webinar will take place on Thursday, September 12, 2013, at 10:00am PDT. To register for the web seminar or for additional information, please visit: http://www.tripwire.com/register/cybersecurity-awareness-and-the-sans-20-cscs/
