On-Demand Webinar Featuring Rolf Von Roessing

The 60-Minute IT Compliance Formula

Breaking Down Regulations to Their Essential Elements

Most security experts will tell you that the formula for success in passing regulatory compliance audits can be complex and expensive - but how complex and expensive is it really?

Join us for an educational and insightful hour-long webinar in which our panel of experts will explain how requirements such as PCI DSS, Sarbanes-Oxley, FISMA and others can be broken down into their constituent parts and each element tackled with commonsense principles.

Along the way you'll gain an understanding of why organizations should limit access to their business-critical systems to only those named users whose job role requires it, and why this alone is not sufficient without privilege management and auditing.

We'll also explain the role that centralized administration can play in reducing the complexity and expense of bringing multi-operating system environments (Linux/Unix on critical systems and Windows plus Mac on the desktop) into compliance.

You'll also get a chance to quiz our panel of experts on the topic at hand.

Whether your organization faces compliance audits or you simply need to adhere more strictly to IT security best practices, this webinar will:

  • Assist you in understanding the role that accountability plays in the identity stakes.
  • Help you discover cost-effective methods for enforcing that accountability by leveraging existing identity and policy services.
  • Educate you on how user access rights and privileges are inextricably linked to the audit function.
  • Detail how complex role-based access controls and user privileges can be managed centrally.
  • Explain how users can be granted only the rights they need to perform their jobs, eliminating the sharing of privileged account passwords.
  • Demonstrate how to further reduce the cost and complexity of audits by confining their scope to just the systems containing sensitive data.
