SafeNet to Present at RSA Conference 2012

February 22, 2012

SafeNet, Inc., a global leader in data protection, announced today that David Etue, vice president of corporate development strategy for SafeNet, will present at the 2012 RSA Conference in San Francisco. Mr. Etue and Joshua Corman, director of security intelligence for Akamai Technologies (NASDAQ: AKAM), will co-present “Adversary ROI: Why Spend $40B Developing It, When You Can Steal It For $1M.” 

 The session will explore the reasons why the security community fails to accurately assess Return On Investment (ROI) on security offerings and Return On Security Investment (ROSI). Mr. Etue and Mr. Corman will look at ROI from the adversary’s perspective, introducing an “Adversary ROI” model, and showing how it can change the way organizations evaluate cyber security investment. 

  “It’s time we flip how we evaluate security investments, and look at it through the motivations of the attacker,” said David Etue, vice president, corporate development strategy, SafeNet.  “The Adversary ROI model provides a framework for business leaders and security experts to discuss the motivations of various adversaries, ranging from nation states to organized crime to hactivists, and better apply limited resources to best defend their critical assets.” 

  ”Organizations have finite resources—they can’t protect everything,” said Joshua Corman, director of security intelligence for Akamai Technologies.  “The single largest determinant in a breach last year was who was targeting you.  We need to look at the adversaries to better protect our organizations.”   

Messrs. Etue and Corman’s presentation (session ID: GRC-202) will take place on Wednesday, February 29 at 9:30AM PST in Room 309 at the Moscone Center. SafeNet will also showcase its data protection solutions and will be launching its new global program, “The World Runs on Crypto.” Crypto technologies empower complete protection, trust, compliance and governance of sensitive information, no matter what it is, where it resides, or where it’s going.  As the leader in data protection, SafeNet is at the forefront of Crypto, with solutions that enable customers to protect, control, and manage their most high-value information in the most complex environments. Visit SafeNet in booth #1354 at the RSA Conference 2012.
