TriGeo Network Security Executives to Present at Interop New York 2008

Two executives from TriGeo Network Security will share best practices for network, device and data security at Interop New York 2008, taking place September 15-19 at The Javits Center. President and CEO Michelle Dickman and CTO Michael Maloof will showcase the value of security information and event management (SIEM) to protect endpoints and network infrastructure from both external hackers and trusted insiders.

Dickman, who has more than 20 years of experience in software and financial services, helps hundreds of midmarket banks, credit unions, retailers and government organizations develop and implement security strategies to proactively protect their networks and maximize the value of security and compliance solutions.

Her presentation will address how SIEM gives organizations control of their networks and the ability to demonstrate regulatory compliance to industry auditors. Attendees will learn how real-time correlation of network events automates response to emerging attacks and insider abuse and misuse. Dickman will demonstrate how to stop attacks, such as malicious code, policy violations, inappropriate Web browsing and unauthorized USB device usage -- an especially relevant attack in light of the Countrywide insider arrested earlier this month for stealing about two million customer records through a USB drive.

WHO: Michelle Dickman, president and CEO, TriGeo Network Security

WHAT: "Forensics are Not Enough! Case Studies in Proactive Network Defense Using Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) Technology"

WHEN: Wednesday, September 17th, 2:30 - 3:15 p.m.

WHERE: Interop New York; The Javits Center, Free Education Room #2

Maloof has more than 25 years in technology research, design and development, and is the co-inventor of TriGeo's patented event correlation approach. Author of the TriGeoSphere blog, Maloof leads TriGeo's team of engineers and researchers who analyze network and user actions in real-time, giving midmarket IT departments new capabilities to instantly identify and stop unauthorized network activities.

Maloof will participate in a panel discussion on attacks targeting endpoints and network infrastructure. The panel, moderated by a Forrester analyst and also comprised of executives from McAfee, Symantec and Sophos, will highlight how to choose endpoint security tools and protect networks from spyware, Trojan horse applications, keystroke loggers and other malicious software installed without users' and organizations' knowledge.

WHO: Michael Maloof, CTO, TriGeo Network Security

WHAT: "What About the Endpoint? A Discussion of Endpoint Security Concepts and Trends." Panel discussion moderated by Khalid Kark, principal analyst at Forrester Research. Other panelists: Dave Marcus, director of security research and communications, McAfee Avert Labs; Jim Waggoner, senior principal product manager, Endpoint Security Group, Symantec; Mark Harris, global director, SophosLabs, Sophos.
