Report stresses the importance of forensic security and endpoint detection and response

PASADENA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Guidance Software, the makers of EnCase®, the gold standard in forensic security, and EnForce™, an automated cyber risk management platform, today announced participation in the first-annual 2017 TAG Cyber Security Annual - Practical Handbook and Reference Guide for the Working Cyber Security Professional, available now.

Guidance joins a collective of the nation's top cybersecurity companies participating in the report, which was written and published by The Amoroso Group (TAG Cyber), led by Edward Amoroso, former chief security officer of AT&T.

"The TAG Cyber report reinforces the importance of cybersecurity preparedness, especially with regards to the nation's critical infrastructure," said Guidance Software President and CEO Patrick Dennis. "Ed has faced some of the world's biggest security challenges. His point of view is important for all of us to understand, and we were pleased to participate in the research and to provide our point of view on the critical importance of digital forensics and endpoint security."

The 2017 TAG Cyber Security Annual details a new urgency for how America's information security and technology professionals respond to escalating and increasingly complex cyberattacks, with a special focus on U.S. infrastructure companies, including energy, telecommunications, manufacturing, health care and utilities.

"Patrick and his team at Guidance Software are such experts in their field," said Ed Amoroso. "My research benefitted so much from their kind technical assistance throughout all phases of the project."

The report includes a comprehensive analysis of the cybersecurity industry with insights from C-level executives. It calls on tech leaders of the largest and most important American enterprises to rethink their approach to data collection, data storage, and data management to effectively defend against cyberattacks that are not only likely, but occurring at an increasing rate.
