Engaging the Board on Cyber Security

Engaging the board is an ongoing challenge in cyber security for a variety of reasons: what seems like a uniquely technical issue is actually a complex business risk present across different business functions.

Board members don’t necessarily have the technical knowledge to feel at ease making decisions about cyber risk, and a lack of regulatory clarity and metrics around cyber threat makes it challenging to track ROI.

This session asks how we can prepare a board for a crisis, using planning processes to help shape decisions, identify areas in need of investment and gain cyber security sponsorship at the highest levels of the business.

The Classification Conundrum: Why It’s Time to Rethink Your Approach to Data Classification

Data classification is embedded in the very DNA of successful data protection and privacy programs, at the heart of a true data asset inventory, and is critical for compliance - but it can be difficult, unreliable, and inconsistent (at best).  How can enterprises know their data in a fragmented data landscape of diverse data formats, schemas, content, and metadata types? Why haven’t we solved the classification conundrum - and how can security and privacy teams lead the charge for next-generation classification?  

It’s crucial that data classification takes a leap forward - enabling organizations to maintain an accurate data inventory, achieve continuous compliance, get insight on their critical data faster, and establish a holistic view of sensitive data across the data sprawl.  

Join this session to learn more about:
●      Why organizations need a new approach to data classification - and why traditional classification isn’t enough
●      How to apply ML to get deeper insight into data
●      New techniques for classifying sensitive data

Securing Your Digital Transformation Power By Low-Code Developers

By 2024, and estimated 65% of enterprise application will be built using low-code platforms.  Citizen Developers without formal coding experience will be the primary drivers and makes of these low-code applications.  With this proliferation of developers and accelerated delivery of enterprise applications, security and governance becomes paramount to both digital transformation and business success.  How does an organization ensure that all the new applications being created by citizen developers does not lead to shadow IT or lost or stolen critical data.  The Microsoft Power Platform is an industry leading low-code platform serving more than 95% for the F500.  

This talk will demonstrate how the Power Platform and how Microsoft help organizations balance the growth and creativity of citizen developers who help lead an organization’s digital transformation while maintain corporate governance and security protocols. Low-code platforms will be the foundation and bedrock for organizations in the coming years, and the framework and tools need to govern and secure this new paradigm will be crucial for every business.

Data Is Your Competitive Advantage and Your Biggest Risk. So Why Don’t You Know Where It Is?

It starts with data, it’s no longer an outcome of what we do. When we look back, we amass loads of “history” of things, now we leverage that history to define how and what we do. Hence the adoption of data lakes, IoT, and the commonly held view of data is more valuable than oil. Embracing data helps us make better decisions, delights our customers, delivers growth, and safeguards our business. Safeguarding your business is no longer about just placing firewalls, VPNs, and endpoint protection. You need to know what you’re protecting, otherwise you’re at risk.

Solving Data Retention Once and for All Through Smart Decisions and Meaningful Implementation

In a data driven world, an organization largely depends on the data it has and uses. Part of fruitful processing data is making sure that you know when data must be kept and when it must be removed. Your data  is subject to thousands of data retention periods, which vary per country and industry. Unfortunately, these rules often are conflicting forcing companies to make smart risk based decisions. Implementing a data retention policy will help organizations to be in control of their data and enhance compliance with laws, including the EU GDPR and the CCPA.  During session presentation, we will give tips and tricks to organizations that are in various stages of implementing a data retention policy.

Surviving the Data Explosion: Practical Steps for Successfully Managing Unstructured Data

Are we experiencing a data explosion or data implosion? With data growth not slowing down any time soon, one thing is clear: traditional approaches to managing information aren’t working (just look at the frequency of major data breaches splashed across the front page of the news.)

Following the tendency to collect and keep data “just in case we need it later”, companies are now faced with navigating the collection, storage, and management of vast amounts of data without understanding contents, locations, and access. This blind spot creates significant privacy and security risk.
Join this session to learn from firsthand experience how to build a strong data protection strategy and solve the most pressing unstructured data challenges.
