AccessData Cybersecurity Vice President Jason Mical Speaking at Secutech 2014 in Taipei



Keynote unveils how enterprises and government entities can quickly respond and recover after a cyber-attack across their complex data-driven, networks, mobile and IT environments

Singapore, Mar 17, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - AccessData, the leader in incident resolution solutions, today announced that Jason Mical, Vice President of Cyber Security, AccessData Group, will be a featured speaker at the 17th International Exhibition and Conference for Electronic Security, Info Security, Fire and Safety (Secutech), taking place from 19-21 March 2014 in Taipei, Taiwan.

Mical's keynote presentation titled "Flying blind and wasting time - filling detection, analysis and remediation gaps" will tackle security incidents such as data theft, hacking and malware attacks and findings on how poor detection and response times are in today's sophisticated threat landscape.

Chief information security officers and IT departments often find themselves confronted by daunting information challenges. In a report done in collaboration with Ponemon Institute, AccessData surveyed 1,083 CISOs and security technicians in the United States and EMEA about how companies handle the immediate aftermath of a cyber-attack. Findings show that 86% of respondents say detection of a cyber-attack takes too long; 85% say they suffer from a lack of prioritization of incidents; 74% say poor or no integration between security products negatively affects response capabilities and 61% say too many alerts from too many point solutions also hinders investigations.

Attendees can expect to hear from Mical on the reasons companies struggle to defend their domain, and get tips on how they can mitigate cybersecurity risks and respond to attacks and breaches most effectively and efficiently.

Keynote details:

"Flying blind and wasting time - filling detection, analysis and remediation gaps"
21 March 2014, Friday, 11:00am to 11:40am
Location: TBC

After Mical's keynote, he will also deliver a presentation at a customer seminar titled "Ditch the niche - Holistic, rapid detection and response" where he will introduce AccessData's cybersecurity systems, Cyber Intelligence & Response Technology (CIRT) and InSight Platform(TM).

The InSight Platform(TM) is the first Continuous Automated Incident Resolution (CAIR(TM)) Platform that delivers comprehensive, real-time insight, analysis, response and resolution of data incidents, including cyber threats, insider threats, mobile risk, BYOD risk, GRC (Governance Risk & Compliance) and eDiscovery events.

Excited about the show, Mical said: "AccessData makes the world's most advanced and intuitive incident resolution solutions. We are delighted to participate at Secutech for the first time and impart our expertise in safeguarding organisations from risks in an open, global, mobile, data-driven environment of continuous compromise. We laud the efforts of the government and private groups here in Taiwan and in the region in beefing up their Internet security capability."

The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way.

The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS).

The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love.
