Webinar presents Mike Rothman of Security Incite and A.N. Ananth of Prism Microsystems in a compelling discussion on why log management is an integral part of a security management program. A ‘must attend’ for security and compliance managers/officers.

Columbia, MD Prism Microsystems Inc., a pioneer in log management technology and developer of the EventTracker solution that enables ‘logging in-depth’, today announced that it will host a free, informative Webinar on October 10th at 1 pm EDT titled “Using Log Management to Secure Your IT Infrastructure”. This event will provide practical information to help security managers and officers enhance the security of enterprise-wide critical systems by leveraging log management technology.

Log Management helps with security by providing organizations with the mechanism to quickly pinpoint security threats and allow for their successful investigation and resolution. In addition, it also delivers complete visibility and transparency into IT operations by monitoring and maintaining an audit trail of all system and user activity, thereby reducing the risks associated with data theft, hacking attempts and other malicious attacks. Given these benefits, it is not surprising that log management is considered a security ‘best practice’, and an imperative for ensuring compliance.

“While compliance mandates that explicitly call for the collection, storage and review of log data have turned log management from a ‘nice to have’ to a ‘must have’ solution, many organizations are also realizing the powerful benefits that this technology delivers in risk mitigation and threat containment” says Steve Lafferty, VP of Marketing, Prism Microsystems Inc.

Learn more about leveraging the power of log management at this live event featuring security expert, Mike Rothman, who will present the case for why log management should be at the top of every security manager’s list. Mike will talk about the key things to think about when selecting a log management solution and provide actionable advice on:

  1. How log management can help with incidence response
  2. How data can be gathered to isolate and prosecute perpetrators
  3. How log management can provide all the necessary data to keep the compliance auditor happy
