What: On Tuesday, September 30, 2008, top security executives from Cisco will host an Internet TV broadcast on data leakage - one of the most critical information security challenges confronting businesses, employees, and consumers around the world.

  • Key global research on top employee mistakes and their rationale for committing them.
  • Perceptions, behavior, and social/business cultures' impact on heightening individual and corporate data leakage risk around the world.
  • Recommended practices for preventing data leakage and guidance for businesses on how to evolve risk management strategies and approaches.
  • Live Q&A: Media and analysts can ask questions throughout the broadcast.
