BOULDER, Colo. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- LogRhythm, the leader in cyber threat defense, detection and response, is sponsoring a webinar on protecting critical infrastructure from cyber threats, and the webcast features LogRhythm CTO and Co-Founder Chris Petersen and former White House Senior Director of Cybersecurity Dr. Sameer Bhalotra. Held on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 at 2 p.m. Eastern time, the free webinar is hosted by SC Magazine.
Well-reported alleged international targeted cyber attacks concern many who point to the interconnected nature of several infrastructure systems necessary to daily life, including the power grid, water systems, air traffic control networks, and a variety of other operations that could be compromised by cyber terrorists. The U.S. government is addressing the concerns; the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is publishing for public debate the final Preliminary Cybersecurity Framework.
During the webcast presentation, Dr. Bhalotra, who is also the chief operating officer at social network security vendor Impermium, will discuss current and evolving threats to the critical infrastructure of the U.S. He will also outline action that the U.S. government has taken, including an executive order issued in early 2013 by President Obama, and will provide practical advice based on the Preliminary Cybersecurity Framework’s implications for organizations that deal with essential infrastructure systems.
Petersen will share the latest advancements in IT security analytics and how combining deep forensic visibility into host, network and user activity, with advanced machine analytics can accelerate the detection of, and response to, cyber threats that could threaten critical infrastructure.
