Expert Webinar Series with Target & Tanium:

Addressing Cybersecurity Challenges in Retail with Speed and Scale

Disparate and Dispersed? Don’t Despair – Addressing Cybersecurity Challenges in Retail with Speed and Scale.

Retailers face a unique set of cybersecurity challenges. 

Sensitive information, including card data and personal information, remain lucrative targets for criminals. Legacy applications, a diverse set of systems, and geographically dispersed networks introduce complexity that contributes to challenges facing retailers. 

Current tools can take weeks to accurately report the state of endpoints, placing defenders at a huge disadvantage. 

Tim Crothers, Sr. Director Cyber Security at Target, understands these challenges. Along with Tanium CSO, Dave Damato, Tim will share how important it is for retail organizations to have real- time visibility and control.

During the session, you’ll gain insights into:
  • Obtaining instant visibility into all endpoints
  • Responding immediately to security incidents
  • Creating an overall automated and repeatable security process in order to maintain proper security hygiene
  • How Tanium enables 15-second visibility and control over every endpoint at retail scale

Registrations will only be accepted from individuals who work for retailers and all registrations will be vetted and approved or declined.  Business email required.
