Data Discovery and Classification - Think Like a Cybercriminal

Think Like a Cybercriminal

I have been really digging into data discovery and classification – one of our technology partners, Netwrix, has integrated our classification technologies into their 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.…

Data Breaches

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.…
