Guidance Software, (NASDAQ:GUID), the World Leader in Digital Investigations™, announced that CEIC 2014 will spotlight security research by Verizon Enterprise Solutions and the SANS Institute providing unique insights into cyber threats to endpoints and their impact on organizations. CEIC brings together security, e-discovery and forensic investigation professionals for in-depth discussions on security with industry experts representing leading government agencies and corporations from around the world. The event will be held May 19 to 22, at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
- The Verizon 2014 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) revealed that although cybercriminals can bypass an organization’s security within days, it often takes months before hackers are detected. However, for the first time in the report’s history, internal discoveries outnumbered external fraud detection. In addition to employees, unrelated third-parties, like CSIRTs and threat researchers, are emerging as an invaluable resource on breaches. Guidance Software contributed to this year’s DBIR and invited Verizon to present highlights of the report.
- In the first-ever SANS Endpoint Security Survey sponsored by Guidance Software, SANS surveyed 948 IT Security professionals in the United States to determine how they monitor, assess, protect and investigate their endpoints. The survey results demonstrated that more and more attacks are bypassing perimeter security, despite the fact that the respondents do not consider the attacks to be sophisticated. Nearly half of respondents are operating under the assumption they’ve been compromised; with another 5 percent saying they operate under the assumption that if they have not already been compromised, they eventually will be.
“As organizations increasingly operate under the assumption of risk, their posture is no longer ‘will I be breached,’ but ‘I have been breached, now what?’ Throughout CEIC, sessions will highlight the changing security landscape as well as emerging threats,” said Alex Andrianopoulos, vice president of marketing for Guidance Software. “Attendees will have an opportunity to learn from experts the most pressing issues surrounding data breaches and cyber threats, giving them greater insights into the threats they are facing, how to remediate them quickly and prevent them from re-occurring.”
Key sessions at CEIC include:
2014 Verizon DBIR Lessons Learned
Who: Suzanne Widup, senior analyst, Risk and Intelligence, Verizon Enterprise Solutions
When: Monday, 4:30-6:30 p.m.
Where: Pompeian I-II
Based on forensic evidence collected from more than 50 data contributors, including Guidance Software, as well as Verizon’s caseload, the 2014 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) offers a rare and comprehensive view into the world of cybercrime. This presentation will discuss the evolution of results over the ten years of data and delve into the people, methods and motives that drive attackers today.
Visibility at the Endpoint: The SANS 2014 Survey
Who: Jake Williams, SANS instructor
When: Wednesday, 9:30-9:50 a.m.
Where: Expo Hall Theatre
A majority of organizations are operating under the assumption that their network has already been compromised, or will be, according to a survey conducted by the SANS Institute and sponsored by Guidance Software. More than 940 security professionals in a variety of industries were surveyed on their information security challenges and their degree of network endpoint visibility. This session will focus on highlights from the SANS survey.

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
