                       Seminar, "Defending Against the Pervasive Attacker"

Nick Bruno joins Quinn Shamblin, Executive Director & Information Security Officer at Boston University, Joan Goodchild, Editor, CSO and Nick Akerman, Partner at Dorsey & Whitney LLP to discuss best strategies for making sense through all the cyber security noise. Security and technology teams need to see what’s happening to their enterprises in real-time. As enterprises have introduced more defensive and monitoring technologies to their infrastructure, making sense out of all the resulting data is difficult – but no longer a luxury, it's a necessity. Technologies like Security Event and Incident Management (SEIM) can be critical to making quick sense of data while attacks are still under way.

Nick is a frequent guest blogger for Continuum, discussing the latest in security, to help the company’s Managed Services Provider (MSP) partners prepare their SMB clients for today’s security challenges. For his most recent blog, “How Mayhem Ensues When You Don't Establish a BYOD Policy,” visit:
