Well, here I am sitting in San Francisco, waiting for the big day to start tomorrow for RSA Conference. I just got back from a small tour of the exhibit hall with our event mananger, Cindy, and I have got to say I am already blown away by the indusrty.

Tomorrow, at 11:00 AM MST we'll be hosting a BrightTalk webinar called: 'CryptoLocker: Your Money or Your Life". CryptoLocker is a particularly nasty form of 'Ransomware' that gained its notoriety last September when it took the concept of ransomware to a whole new level. You see, typical ransomware usually hijacks your desktop wallpaper, demanding you pay up to get your files back. Fortunately, it was easy to remove. CryptoLocker, on the other hand, actually used very strong encryption methods to encrypt your files and gave you three days to pay the ransom and get your files back. The thing is, paying the ransom is really the only way to obtain the private key and get your files back.

[b]“An Evolving Computing Landscape Brings New Challenges for Endpoint Protection”[/b] It can be difficult to define what an endpoint looks like these days as staff members are just as likely to reply to an email from a smartphone in a coffee shop as their desktop PC in the office. This is an indication of a rapid evolution in computing which is impacting organizations of every size and industry. [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/6165i8D5FCCC122CD61DC.jpg[/img][i]Andrew Rose, Principal Analyst, Forrester Research[/i] These endpoint changes are adding complexity to an already challenging environment and this has implications for data control and security. Information security leaders need to reconsider both endpoint protection and the human aspects of technology use to ensure that their traditional controls don't slip into obsolescence leaving them vulnerable to malicious outsiders. Join leading industry expert Andrew Rose from Forrest
