HAWTHORNE, NJ--(Marketwired - Jan 6, 2015) - STEALTHbits Technologies Inc., leading supplier of Data Access Governance solutions for Unstructured Data and Microsoft Infrastructure Management, announced today that it will host a free webinar discussing the Sony breach and STEALTHbits' role in mitigating the damage to its customers in similar, future attacks.

Led by Jonathan Sander, STEALTHbits' Strategy and Research Officer and prominent data security industry expert, the webinar will be held on Thursday, January 8 at 11:30 am EST. As a live, interactive event, attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the breach, how it relates to their organizations, and ask questions of a recognized industry expert.

"In a sense, the Sony breach is more frightening for enterprises than Home Depot or Target because there was no profit motive," noted Sander. "Home Depot and Target can calculate the cost of stolen credit card numbers, but the reputation damage inflicted on Sony and its executives simply can't be quantified. That's one difference between structured and unstructured data breaches, and we'll dive into that in some detail January 8."

Sander will detail what we know about the mechanics of the breach, and how the attack's effectiveness could have been blunted both before and after the hackers successfully breached Sony's external defenses.

"After the external firewall is penetrated in a breach, most enterprises are defenseless, and at the mercy of the attackers, but they don't have to be," added Adam Laub, STEALTHbits' Vice President. "STEALTHbits has products that can greatly reduce the exposure of sensitive material, and also reduce the organization's time of awareness, significantly limiting the damage of an attack like the one Sony experienced. We look forward to discussing that in detail during the webinar."
