Data security for today's organizations is an ever increasing difficult task, especially with the increasing sophistication and volume of attacks aimed at stealing information. Protecting data becomes an perpetual challenge, with the view of an increased usage of mobile devices, such as laptops and smart phones. Furthermore, disaffected internal employees often have access to sensitive information. As companies expand and acquire more data, the need for a well-managed solution that integrates multiple data-protection technologies to provide comprehensive enterprise coverage, along with persistent data protection, becomes a necessity across the enterprise. This can only be achieved with a credible appreciation of risk.

In today’s highly regulatory environment it is essential that you have a clear understanding of risk across the enterprise. An appropriate risk management framework can bring visibility to key business and compliance risks and enable an organization to make decisions on where to prioritize its limited resources. It is through a risk management framework that real value to the business can be achieved in focusing on relevant areas of IT risk of data security within the enterprise environment.

Using international standards, an effective risk management control framework and current best practice, the aim of this seminar will advise senior executives and management on how to implement secure safeguards within a virtually borderless environment.
