Sourcefire, the creators of Snort(R) and a leader in intelligent Cybersecurity solutions, today announced that its founder and CTO, Martin Roesch, will speak at the FS-ISAC 2010 Spring Conference. During the session, Roesch will discuss the techniques and solutions financial institutions need to implement to protect their data from today's evolving threat landscape.
Faced with ongoing attacks that target sensitive customer information, such as social security and bank account numbers, the financial industry requires solutions that go beyond traditional reactive security. In this session, Roesch will discuss current network security challenges and new solutions that can adapt to changes to better protect sensitive customer data.

Roesch has a long history of identifying real-world Cybersecurity challenges and developing solutions to address them. He founded Sourcefire in 2001 to deliver commercial security solutions that leverage his open source innovation, Snort, the world's most widely deployed intrusion detection and prevention technology with more than 285,000 registered users and nearly 4 million downloads to date. As the de facto standard for intrusion detection and prevention, Snort is used extensively by Fortune 100 companies and government agencies.
