Debunking Continuous Monitoring Myths

FEATURING: Eugene E. Schultz and Steve Johnston Sponsored By: Tripwire

There are many myths floating around about continuous monitoring of

government systems. In this webcast, senior SANS analyst, Eugene

Schultz, PhD, debunks the myths that are holding organizations back

from getting started on their continuous monitoring efforts. For

example, continuous monitoring doesn’t always mean continuous, and

real-time doesn’t mean always real-time.


Application Whitelisting Stops Stuxnet, APTs, and the Common Cold!  (Time for a Reality Check)

WHEN: Thursday, May 19, 2011 at 1:00 PM ET (1700 UTC/GMT)

FEATURING: John Strand & Dan Teal

Sponsored By: Coretrace

Application whitelisting’s security and control benefits are well known, but how does the approach really help thwart today’s sophisticated threats better than traditional blacklisting–and what does the promising technology NOT address?

Please join John Strand and Dan Teal, CTO & founder of CoreTrace, for an honest, marketing-free and spirited debate about that very subject.
