Security practitioners are invited to register for the June 18, 3 p.m. EDT SANS What Works webinar at:https://www.sans.org/webcasts/reaping-benefits-nac-pioneer-investments-98347.

According to a recent Gartner, Inc. report,1 “to enable a truly adaptive and risk-based response to advanced threats, the core of a next-generation security protection process will be continuous, pervasive monitoring and visibility that are constantly analyzed for indications of compromise.”

Pioneer Investments is a global investment management firm, founded in 1928, dedicated to growing and preserving client assets. The institution has a presence in 27 countries worldwide and an experienced team of more than 2,060 employees globally, of which nearly 350 are investment professionals. The SANS What Works initiative employs SANS research to illuminate user stories that bring the benefits (and problems) of effective security tools to life.

Presented as a webcast interview, it is a lessons-learned conversation between Pescatore, SANS director and a former distinguished analyst at Gartner, and Pfeil, a security professional utilizing a state-of-the-art security solution. The program attempts to answer all the questions a prospective buyer might ask a satisfied but unbiased user.

  • Drivers, operational buy-in and justification
  • Selection processes, criteria and technology trade-offs
