Social Media: Impact and Implications for Corporate PrivacyRead more >
After multiple newsworthy data breaches in recent times, IT security and privacy governance has gained importance across the globe. Most organizations have established security and compliance policies and procedures to protect their intellectual property and corporate assets, especially in the IT space. As companies transition their applications and data to the cloud, it is critical for them to maintain, or preferably surpass, the level of security they had in their traditional IT environment. Leaders are also responsible for defining policies to address privacy concerns and raise awareness of data protection within their organization, and for ensuring that their cloud providers adhere to the defined privacy policies. Failure to ensure IT Security when using cloud services could ultimately result in higher costs and potential loss of business, thus eliminating any of the potential benefits of the cloud.
While security and privacy are related, they are also distinct. IT security is primarily concerned with defending against attacks, not all of which are aimed at stealing data, while privacy is specifically related to personal data held by an organization, which may be endangered by negligence or software bugs, not necessarily by malevolent persons. On this webinar our panel of experts will address some of the key distinctions, and discuss some best practices for managing IT security and implementing privacy governance for the cloud.
Personal data of individuals – consumers and employees – is in constant motion across international borders. Nonetheless, existing privacy laws purport to prohibit organizations in many countries from transferring data to another jurisdiction in the absence of adherence to various legal frameworks or contractual mechanisms designed to enhance the protection of personal data.
Those legal frameworks suffered a blow last year when the European Court of Justice struck down the 15 year old Safe Harbor Framework. A year later, the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework has been approved as a replacement, and many companies have begun to certify, but the new Framework remains subject to potential legal challenge. Other European data transfer mechanisms – standard contractual clauses and Binding Corporate Rules – are also subject to legal challenge. And other jurisdictions around the globe in South America, Asia and elsewhere, are imposing restrictions on the transfer or personal data and in some cases even calling for data localization. Yet, data continues to flow in real-time.
What does it mean in the real world? What are the real risks for multinational data owners and for service providers that process data of such data controllers? This presentation will distinguish fact from fiction and provide practical tools for companies that are struggling (understandably) to wrap their virtual arms around the world.
Data privacy isn’t an easy task, you need to ensure the security of sensitive information while complying with a variety of regulations. But data privacy never ends and the laws are constantly changing. The answer? A data-centric security strategy covers all corporate data, so you can connect everyone to everything while staying in complete control. The challenge? Knowing where all your mainframe data is located, how it’s being used, who has access to it, and whether it’s compliant with industry regulations.
Join Stuart McIrvine, Vice President of Mainframe Security Product Management to cover the foundation of building data-centric security strategies that cover all corporate data, simplify regulatory compliance, and outline how to leverage security as a competitive advantage, from mobile to mainframe.
Featuring Timothy Edgar, former national security and intelligence official, cybersecurity expert, privacy attorney and civil liberties activist; and Brett Dorr, Director of Solutions Engineering at Virtru.

Corporate breaches continue to succeed because attackers can steal the legitimate identities of your employees and use those identities to attack your infrastructure. Far deadlier than malware based attacks, identity based attacks can go undetected for months or years because perpetrators impersonate the methods used by your various privileged accounts as if they were that user. Attackers have changed their methods from the now outdated malware based attacks to the evolved identity based attacks. Learn how analytics, deception, and data streams are saving the security industry, or would have at least saved the Democratic National Committee.

Join us for this timely discussion with privacy and data security experts. With ever looming environmental threats such as of ransomware, data theft, denial-of- service attacks, every organization and every industry must be focused on IT security. However, there is a delicate balance and frequent conflicts between the idea of information privacy and security.
How much individual privacy can be expected in an inter-connected world? How much should be sacrificed for the sake of maximizing corporate security? And where (if anywhere) can the lines between personal and corporate be drawn? How do these issue impact policies, training and security surrounding even the most simple of business communication tools: email.
This presentation will provide an overview of the privacy vs. security challenges and explore specifically how these issues are impacting the issue of user email credentials and email vulnerabilities. This is especially critical given that emails are the number one contributor to data breaches. In fact, 63% of breaches in the US last year were the result of a compromised email credential.
We will then a) discuss common misperceptions and security holes that can lead to ransomware and other malware vulnerabilities, b) compare the various alternatives for proactively addressing these vulnerabilities, and c) discuss strategies for preventing and responding to cyberattacks.

From whistle blower allegations, government inquiries and subpoenas, to corporate due diligence, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) violations, and financial fraud – corporate counsel must collect and produce greater amounts of data from around the globe. Besides basic logistical issues, various tiers of data privacy restrictions complicate the process, requiring an in-depth knowledge of data storage technology and practices, multinational data transfer regulations, and general e-discovery best practices. For example, if data is required in response to a regulatory request in the United States, yet the custodians are based in France and Germany, how can the data be collected and reviewed in a defensible manner in compliance with EU as well as French and German data privacy laws? This program will outline the key considerations and best practices for collecting and assessing data in a defensible and secure manner.Read more >
