Data Protection in an Uncertain World: A Risk-Adaptive Approach
We’re now six months into the year, and the “new normal” feels like constant change. Seemingly overnight, organizations have had to find ways to drive high levels of productivity for remote employees, while also maintaining and monitoring applications, protecting data, and continuing to comply with myriad regulations.
At the same time, data no longer lives solely on-premises but across an increasing number of cloud environments, and on multiple endpoint devices – oftentimes mobile or located only in an employee’s home.
Clearly, maintaining visibility into data wherever it flows continues to get harder, as hybrid environments grow more complex. But the need to prevent data loss and safeguard regulated data sources, critical intellectual property and other sensitive information continues. And organizations that fail to meet their data and user protection requirements risk not only slowing their digital transformation programs, but also triggering regulatory repercussions.
Accordingly, what is the ideal data protection roadmap, especially as many organizations are pursing digital transformation? What are potential speedbumps along the way? And how has the global pandemic – together with ongoing regulatory requirements – altered the imperative for how organizations pursue these changes?
Please join ISMG’s Mathew Schwartz for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on navigating data protection challenges, adapting protection as a user’s risk changes, and how to measure their own organizations’ progress.
Discussion topics will include:
- What is your data and user protection roadmap, perhaps as part of a wider digital transformation strategy?
- Where is your organization today in this journey – and how have your priorities shifted this year?
- What does data and user protection, regulatory compliance and digital transformation maturity look like?
Joining Mathew to provide expert insight and case studies is Nicolas Fischbach, Global CTO at Forcepoint.
