Site and NewConference Address Financial Institution Security Landscape
Needham, MA – February 26, 2008 – Information technology (IT) media company TechTarget, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTGT) today announced the launch of SearchFinancialSecurity.com™. As TechTarget’s first enterprise vertically-focused site, SearchFinancialSecurity.com is designed to help IT security professionals and governance, risk and compliance (GRC) staffs in financial institutions to make informed technology investments, manage IT risk, and navigate financial institution-specific regulations.
According to data released by the nonprofit consumer organization Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, since January 2005, some 217 million records containing personally identifiable information have been compromised, with banks, brokerages, savings and loan companies, and other financial institutions being the primary targets of these security attacks.
SearchFinancialSecurity.com will provide in-depth IT security product content for IT professionals and other purchase decision makers researching the appropriate solutions unique to the security challenges faced by financial institutions. Additionally, the site will address a range of topics including the application of IT security technologies to real-world problems in financial institutions; leveraging IT security systems to address specific compliance issues such as the Basel II Accord and FDIC regulations; and educating both IT and GRC professionals on how to leverage IT security solutions to manage and mitigate risk.
The Financial Information Security Decisions™ (FISD) conference will be held June 19-20, 2008 in New York City. To deliver the maximum ROI to FISD sponsors admission to the conference is restricted exclusively to IT security professionals and GRC staff from financial institutions, each pre-qualified by purchase responsibility, job title, company size, and security-specific budget. T he FISD event will feature leading vendors of IT security products and services including ArcSight, WebSense and Kaspersky Lab.
“SearchFinancialSecurity.com and FISD were created with the goal of addressing the unique security challenges faced by the financial services industry, whose companies are the primary target for organized computer crime, fraud and data attacks,“ said Greg Strakosch, CEO of TechTarget. “The Web site and conference will also fill a market gap by providing financial security-specific technology vendors with direct access to IT and financial compliance professionals actively engaged in the research and purchase of security products.”
