Visionaries or Perhaps a Bit Daft?

I read quite a bit on the progress of machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI), both positive and negative. I vacillate between whether organizations that have embarked on such projects are visionaries or crazy.…

Stop or Full Speed Ahead – GDPR Again

The other day, someone said to me that General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was over. He felt that the ‘pitiful’ fines applied by inspectors weren’t going to encourage anyone to become compliant.…

Do You Know Where Your Data Is? Probably Not

Not to give away my age, but do you remember the nursery rhyme, ‘Oh where, oh where has my little dog gone? Oh where, oh where can he be?’ Well, if we apply this to organizations’ data, most have no idea where their data is.…

Forget About Privacy – Where Are the Robotics Specifications?

Since the approach of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), protecting privacy data has been a popular topic.

Data Discovery and Classification - Think Like a Cybercriminal

Think Like a Cybercriminal

I have been really digging into data discovery and classificationNetwrix, our parent company, integrated our classification technologies into its Netwrix Auditor product, a visibility platform for user behavior analysis and risk mitigation. I will throw some topics out there, even if your organization is still not at the point of evaluating or purchasing security software.…

Where Is the Disconnect? Data Breach? Pocket Change. Victims? Who Cares?

I am continually surprised that US companies have a devil-may-care attitude towards a data breach. New legislation protects all financial companies from having to admit to a data breach, ever, or notifying victims that their personal information was stolen.…

Hush, Hush, We Had a Data Breach – Let’s Not Tell Anyone

I am eagerly awaiting the impact of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the requirement to comply with data breach notification. That should be a good one. Have you ever noticed that companies, particularly US ones, initially claim they don’t know they had a data breach, sometimes for months?…
