MARCH 2014 MONTHLY MEETING
Eliminating Data Security Threats
How to Protect Human Generated Data and Enable Collaboration
Unstructured and semi-structured data presents unique challenges to IT organizations. Information Security has traditionally struggled with the overwhelming manual process of enforcing authentication, authorization, and accountability controls on these resources as well as identifying data owners who should be making these decisions. Because of those manual processes, when it comes to identifying who has access, who is accessing and, most importantly, who should have access to shared Windows, NAS and UNIX folders, SharePoint sites, and Exchange mailboxes and public folders, answering those important questions are quite a challenge . With the adoption of cloud based file synchronization services, the challenge of protecting corporate data has become even more daunting.
During this presentation, you will learn how to leverage metadata to instantly remediate risk, how to identify sensitive content quickly, and how to boost productivity without sending sensitive corporate data to the cloud.
