To counter these challenges, RSA experts will introduce the audience to recently released RSA Security Analytics – a transformational security monitoring and investigative solution designed to help organizations defend their digital assets against today’s most sophisticated internal and external threats. In addition, the summit will see experts from RSA address other comprehensive security technologies and highlight the need for intelligent, proactive security practices.

The event will also discuss how organizations can effectively meet governance, risk and compliance requires through technologies that offer comprehensive visibility into the enterprise infrastructure and business context of strategically critical systems
