Cyber Warfare is Main Topic of Discussion at Security 500 Event - Keynote's VP of Operations Shawn White to Present Latest Data on Bank Site Attacks

SAN MATEO, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

Keynote® (NASDAQ: KEYN), the global leader in Internet and mobile cloud testing and monitoring, today announced that Shawn White, vice president of operations, will be speaking at the Security 500 Conference on a panel entitled, "Cyber Warfare on Your Enterprise: Is that Real or Hype "

Shawn will share the latest data Keynote has uncovered regarding ongoing aggressive attacks on the websites of leading U.S. banks, as well as Keynote's experience in identifying DDoS (distributed denial of service) attacks and how companies are learning to better protect themselves. He will also discuss the evolution of DDoS attacks and their increased sophistication, plus the best practices around monitoring from end user locations, continual load-testing, testing 3rd-party content providers, etc. to quickly identify problems. Using Keynote's advanced monitoring tools Keynote and its customers are able to identify downtimes immediately, as well as root cause. Keynote customers include major websites both globally and across all major industries.

"We have data showing substantially increased downtimes for leading U.S. banks due to cyber-attacks. As attacks increase, site operators are looking for new ways both to identify and prevent a DDoS," said Shawn White, vice president of operations at Keynote. "24/7 site monitoring using sophisticated tools such as those provided by Keynote allow organizations to see exactly where performance is impacted and take immediate corrective action based on concrete data."

The panel will discuss how leading organizations are being proactive to limit cyber threats. This includes: the critical gaps between law enforcement and the private sector to share threat information, take action against criminals and address vulnerabilities; How leading enterprises are organizing security programs to maximize defenses against cyber threats; and the most common vulnerabilities that enterprises fail to address, leaving them open for victimization.

In addition to Shawn, speakers on the Cyber Warfare panel will include: Brent Conran, Chief Security Officer, McAfee (News - Alert), Inc.; Stephen Scharf, Senior Vice President and Global Chief Information Security Officer, Experian; Andy Steingruebl, Director, Customer and Ecosystem Security, PayPal. The panel will be moderated by security expert Mark McCourt, founder of the Security 500 and Publisher ofSecurity Magazine.


The event is the second annual Security 500 West Coast conference, bringing together business-minded security leaders from major organizations. The event is held twice a year in NYC and Palo Alto (News - Alert). The conference program is developed from Security's benchmark research survey which identifies the key issues faced by Security 500 organizations. Cyber Security topped the 2012 survey.
