Title: Why is Critical Data being Compromised? – Securing Data & Identities

Securing critical data, identities and information was where this industry started a long time ago but it became more challenging with the rapid growth of enterprise data in an interconnected world.

The pandemic forced organizations to support a remote workforce and expose critical systems that were once only accessible from inside the company’s network. Post pandemic we have shifted to a hybrid workforce which is fragmented with many still working at-home, some roaming, and others working on-site from offices and factory floors. All accessing company data and applications from multiple devices with identity the new perimeter.

With the explosion of data and the expanding diversity of identities it is essential for enterprises to secure their data and identities, both workforce and external (B2E, B2B, and B2C).

We’ve increased the attack surface and the number of vulnerabilities which has led to more data breaches. With the technology advancements in identity access management, customer identity access management, data discovery and encryption we can once again shift the focus to securing : Data & Identities.

We look forward to our November Face to Face meeting, one hour of CPE, and networking with you while learning more about securing data and identities.

Please RSVP to ensure an accurate head count for lunch.
