    Let’s face it, there’s unrelenting pressure on IT to enable competitive advantage through new technology and use of data assets‒-but the business is driving initiatives that can push sensitive production data into more and more exposed areas. The key question is ‘How can you enable the business to be agile AND take a more proactive, programmatic approach to security at the same time?’ With the advanced threats that are pervasive today, it’s becoming increasingly dangerous for organizations to deploy new technologies and processes, and then reactively address the implications for data security in the ecosystem. You need a blueprint to reverse this trend in your organization.

    In this webinar, William Stewart, Senior Vice President of Booz Allen Hamilton and Jeff Lunglhofer, Principal of Booz Allen Hamilton–a leading management technology and consulting firm driving strategic innovation for clients–will discuss the top trends in cyber threat mitigation, data privacy, data governance, and data security, with Mark Bower, VP Product Management and Solutions Architecture at Voltage Security.

    Attend this webinar to learn more about how to:
    •Increase responsiveness and security in your IT environment and architecture
    •Fight pervasive threats from inside and outside attack with data-centric technologies
    •Raise your organization’s overall data privacy, compliance, and security profile
    •Implement a new data de-identification framework across production, test & dev, and analytics use cases
    •Proactively enable critical business initiatives
