NEW YORK - March 19, 2013 - PRLog -- Understanding threats is fundamental to enterprise risk management; threats need to be evaluated in the context of the organization to determine risk. Threat Horizon 2015, the latest in a series of annual Threat Horizon reports from the Information Security Forum ( (ISF), a global, independent information security body considered the world's leading authority on cyber security and information risk management, has found that the biggest risk is from known threats.

The fact that hacktivism and malicious software have been around for a while does not mean that they are less threatening and we can relax. In fact, it is quite the opposite. Older threats, because they have matured, are more dangerous and pose more risk to organizations than ever. They are more sophisticated and more effective.

This webinar will highlight how organizations can respond to known threats based on current efforts by leading ISF Member organizations around the world. It will provide practical advice for organizations to take a forward-looking view of the increasing threats in today’s always-on, interconnected world which in turn enables a better prepared, strategic approach to managing and mitigating risk.

Please register via this link ( for the free webinar on Tuesday, April 9 at 8 a.m. (EDT)/1 p.m. (BST).
