Cyber-attacks are a national security concern. Banking, utilities, healthcare, communications, government services, emergency services, transportation – all are critical to the normal daily activities in every nation.

The increasing volume and sophistication of cyber threats–including targeting phishing scams, data theft, and other online vulnerabilities demand that we remain vigilant about securing our systems and information. The average unprotected computer (i.e. does not have proper security controls in place) connected to the Internet can be compromised in moments. Thousands of infected web pages are being discovered every day. Hundreds of millions of records have been involved in data breaches. New attack methods are launched continuously. These are just a few examples of the threats facing us, and they highlight the importance of information security as a necessary approach to protecting data and systems.

In order to cope with these security challenges – IXIA has joined hands with Cerebral Business Research to organize a Technical seminar on Protecting networking Infrastructure from Cyber Threats on 23rd August 2013 at Vivanta by Taj at Bangalore.

We take this opportunity to invite you to attend this important seminar which will help you to protect your data & systems.
