Admiral (Ret.) Mike Rogers, Former NSA Director and Commander of US Cyber Command, Headlining Dtex Systems Annual Global Insider Threat Summit Taking Place During RSA 2019

February 27, 2019

San Jose, Calif., Feb. 27, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dtex Systems, the leader in user behavior intelligence and insider threat detection, today announced that it will host the third annual Dtex 2019 Global Insider Threat Summit during RSA 2019. This year, former NSA Director and Commander of US Cyber Command Admiral (Ret.) Mike Rogers will headline the event. He will discuss why public and private sector organizations should place increased focus on the insider threat and adopt innovations to reduce associated risk. Additional panels will include business leaders, CISOs and other security and risk professionals. These will provide attendees with deep understanding of how modern enterprises and government agencies leverage advanced behavioral intelligence to illuminate network and human behaviors, detect insider threats, and protect privacy.

In 2018, we saw the continued growth of insiders as a threat vector and a massive leap in public awareness and discussion around privacy. The overlap of these two critically important topics has forced the public and private sectors to find solutions that secure systems, data and people without violating privacy or trust. Organizations that need to understand how to quickly scale insider threat solutions across vast numbers of users should attend this event to learn:

-- How enterprises reduce risk by transitioning to a “Trusted Insider” approach -- How a better understanding of user behavior drives improved security, privacy and agility -- How new intelligence is elevating cyber security to a board-level discussion -- How to provide effective security in the face of privacy and regulatory challenges -- How to deploy and scale insider threat detection solutions across the organization -- How to gain complete visibility over behaviors and activities taking place on endpoints

Summit Participant Quotes:“Flex has a strong emphasis on culture and a need to prioritize security to protect company assets, systems, customer information, IP and people. I look for best-of-breed solutions that can ensure security that supports our business and work culture. During the event, I plan to share with my peers how, with the help of Dtex, we’ve found an innovative way to defend our environment without interfering with how we operate.” —Friedrich (Fritz) Wetschnig, CISO, Flex “Within the next few years, I estimate that cybercrime will cost businesses more than $3 trillion. As organizations scramble to protect their key information assets, they frequently take a ‘whack-a-mole’ approach to the latest threats, hoping they’ve taken the right steps to prevent a data breach. In the process, they often overlook their greatest cyberthreat and resource of all – human beings. I am excited to be a part of this event and to have the opportunity to share how a similar lack of oversight destroyed my business and nearly landed me in jail. Protecting the people that interact with critical data on a daily basis isn’t just security smart, it’s a competitive advantage.” —John Sileo, Cybersecurity Expert and Keynote Speaker“We are always adding value to our customers security and risk programs and investments. Our annual insider threat event not only showcases how the public and private sector organizations we serve are successfully dealing with the insider threat, it also provides attendees with deeper knowledge of how to address the problem. We are certainly proud of this ongoing summit, as it provides a vital education to security and risk professionals who are responsible for protecting data and systems.” —Bahman Mahbod, Dtex Systems CEO
