Cloud Computing, Advanced Persistent Threats And BYOD Are Biggest IT Security And E-Discovery Issues For 2012 Computer And Enterprise Investigations Conference Attendees

Stocks in this article: GUID

Guidance Software Inc. (NASDAQ:GUID), the World Leader in Digital Investigations™, said attendees to its 12th Annual Computer and Enterprise Investigations Conference (CEIC) in May responded that cloud computing, advanced persistent threats (APTs) and bring your own device (BYOD) policies are among the key issues that they are facing in their organizations.

As part of the post-conference survey, when asked what impact the cloud would have on their organization’s e-discovery processes, 54 percent of the survey respondents said they expected it would result in more complicated data collections. Attendees were also surveyed on their biggest cyber security concern, with 45 percent sharing that it is APTs, followed by 30 percent for insider threats and 25 percent for the length of time it takes to resolve attacks.

Attendees were also asked about the hot topic of BYOD and how it has impacted their organizations. 78 percent shared that their organization has allowed employees to bring their own devices, while only 22 percent have allowed no outside devices.

“As this survey shows, the computing infrastructure evolution to the cloud and to mobile devices produces new digital investigation challenges,” said Victor Limongelli, president and CEO of Guidance Software. “Guidance EnCase provides a complete solution to all these challenges, with a powerful platform for all types of digital investigations, across on-premise, cloud and mobile devices and data sources.”

CEIC is the leading conference for digital investigations, which is one of the hottest growing industries right now, with the Bureau of Labor Statistics reporting that the number of new jobs in these fields is expected to rise by 19 percent per year until the end of the decade. This growth was evident at CEIC 2012, with 118 sessions across 11 tracks with presentations and labs in Forensics, Cybersecurity and E-Discovery, as well as the inaugural Guidance CISO Summit.
