In light of what is being called one of the largest breaches in U.S. government history at the Office of Personnel Management, every agency needs to be asking if their investments in data security are being managed appropriately. In absence of an appropriate risk-based approach, agencies can invest significant resources in data protection without effectively minimizing risk.
The first step in any data protection strategy is gaining visibility into your organization's sensitive data and how it's being used. However, visibility alone won't reduce your risk profile unless you recognize and understand the actions against that sensitive data. This approach to threat protection is the basis of the 3 R's of Data Protection - Reviewing & Understanding Visibility, Recognizing Risk, and Reducing Risk which provides the best defense against advanced threats.
In this webinar, Chris King from Digital Guardian will discuss:
How to integrate the three R's of Data Protection in order to reduce the risk of data loss;
Understanding the Enterprise Audit and building more effective security policies;
Effective integration with other platforms to maximize data protection.
Agencies continue to invest a large amount of their budgets into information security to protect their organization and keep would-be attackers from accessing their data. But despite these increased investments, aggressive attackers routinely breach organizations and gain access to sensitive data and intellectual property. In fact, the increase in data breaches has forced us to change the way we look at and protect our most sensitive data. It's now become widely accepted that perimeter breaches are inevitable; however, the loss of data from a breach can be prevented.
Enterprise Audit and Data Compliance programs are required activities for agencies and require continuous monitoring of data, but often times all this monitoring can result in information overload. While there is no silver bullet, adding context to data can help bring focus to the highest risk elements first, reducing the noise and safeguarding sensitive data.
This webinar explores the benefits of implementing a data loss prevention program as well as what a typical program deployment cycle would look like for an organization.
