It Starts With People – Combating Data Loss and Insider Risk

Data doesn’t move itself. People—whether they are negligent, compromised or malicious—move data in secure and risky ways. The growth in remote work from anywhere and everywhere has redefined the global security perimeter and increased the risk of insider-led data loss for organizations. At the same time, the frequency and volume of insider threats keeps rising, placing a significant burden on security teams to keep pace. Where do you start to stop insider threats?

Join this session to discuss:

  • Moving beyond legacy data loss prevention approaches
  • Managing insider threats and risks in your organization
  • Increasing visibility across multiple channels to accelerate incident response
