Adopting an Enterprise Data Security Approach to Safeguarding Data Assets

Scott  Simmons
In a review of recent data breaches - it is clear that traditional mechanisms for data protection are simply inadequate. The emergence of the cloud, micro-services, social media has necessitated a re-evaluation of how to safeguard data assets especially PII (Personally Identifiable Information), PHI (Protected Health Information), and PCI (Payment Card Information).

Regulatory statutes are additionally influencing these requirements including GDPR, HIPAA, and Privacy Shield. This presentation will review the current challenges and the requirements arising from these new trends providing an action plan for an enterprise data security approach based on Data-Centric Audit and Protection (DCAP) solutions.
