    Dave Shackleford | SANS Institute & Josh Mayfield | Absolute Recorded: Aug 20 2018 62 mins
    Healthcare is data. Every stitch of a patient’s health record, diagnoses, treatments, and provider interactions are fueled by information.

    And with PHI, IP, and other sensitive information readily accessible on all types of devices, it’s no wonder that healthcare and life sciences organizations are now prime targets for cyber criminals.

    In this webinar, you’ll drop in on a conversation between Dave Shackleford, Analyst and Senior Instructor at SANS Institute; and Absolute’s Josh Mayfield, Director of Solutions. They will discuss the key steps required to keep sensitive healthcare data safe and avoid disastrous data breaches.

    You will learn:

    - How to pinpoint sensitive data — even if it’s hiding on lost or stolen devices
    - Which bad endpoint hygiene habits are making your devices vulnerable to attacks
    - The cost of not complying with shifting regulations and OCR requirements

    Data Visibility: Your Path to Regulatory Compliance
    Kim Ellery - Senior Director of Product Marketing | Absolute Recorded: Jul 10 2018 45 mins
    Whether for GDPR, HIPAA, or other regulations, successful compliance initiatives require knowing the location of your sensitive information.

    But with mobile workforces equipped with devices that go off-network every day, is that even possible? For most organizations, the reality is that critical data resides on endpoints they can’t see or secure.

    Watch “Data Visibility: Your Path to Regulatory Compliance” now and understand the steps you need to take to:

    • Identify which of your endpoints contain sensitive information
    • Understand your at-risk data to determine cost of exposure
    • Ensure continuous compliance through rapid remediation
    • Prove compliance should an incident occur

    Make sure your organization is always audit-ready, and avoid data breaches and compliance-related penalties.
