Most governments have already created, or are in the process of creating, regulations that impose conditions on the safeguard and use of Personally Identifiable Information (PII), with penalties for organizations who fail to sufficiently protect it. Organizations need to treat privacy as both a compliance and business risk issue, in order to reduce regulatory sanctions as well as reputational damage and loss of customers due to privacy breaches.
So how will organisations manage infrastructure across multiple domains without falling foul of emerging privacy and data management legislation, particularly when cloud services and personal devices are the norm?
During this webinar, Steve Durbin, Managing Director of ISF, will discuss how the security function and the board will need to work together to ensure that current regulatory trends and emerging technologies are aligned to maintain business effectiveness and connectivity.
This webcast will consist of a short presentation followed by a panel discussion with a range of subject matter experts.
