Topic: Data Loss Prevention Essentials
A how-to primer on overcoming organizational challenges to implement a successful Data Loss Prevention program.
Advances in technology have prompted a rapid evolution of business processes over the last two decades. Along with the benefits provided to organizations, these advances have brought about new types of risks. Data has become the lifeblood of organizations, yet many do not know what data they have, what is important, or how it is being used.
A Data Loss Prevention program provides insight into these new risks, but organizations are often ill-equipped to respond to this new information or manage the associated risks.
Infolock’s Director of Advisory Services, Ryan Dobbins, will discuss the three main areas required for a successful implantation:
- Governance: The organizational articulation of what data is important and how it is measured
- Visibility: The technical ability to make informed decisions
- Protection: The enforcement of organization risk tolerance
A successful DLP program supports and informs organizational leadership as they manage data risk and minimize the occurrence and impact of data incidents. Attendees will leave this presentation with an understanding of how to turn DLP technology into a holistic program to reduce organizational risks.
