HP to Deliver Keynote Address at RSA 2013 Security Conference

HP executives present six sessions on the biggest trends in enterprise security

Cybercriminals are increasingly banding together, organizing more sophisticated attacks that are more predatory in nature. Cybercrooks’ rapid adoption of new technologies and efficacy in information sharing has trumped traditional static enterprise defenses. In order for organizations to stay protected, they must learn from their adversaries.

During a keynote address at RSA Conference 2013, Art Gilliland, senior vice president and general manager, Enterprise Security Products, HP, will discuss how lessons learned from cybercriminals can be applied to boost an organization’s overall security strategy.

Gilliland’s presentation, “Criminal Education: Lessons from the Criminals and Their Methods,” will examine the means and motivations driving cybercriminal behavior and how improvements such as benchmarking can persuade criminals to look elsewhere for targets while helping security professionals develop stronger defenses.
