Success Story: Learn how the Sheriff’s Office fortifies its endpoint security

Presented by

Keith Morrison - Director of Information Security at Cook County Sheriff's Office

About this talk

The Cook County Sheriff’s Office uses Absolute to fortify its endpoint security with a self-healing, persistent connection to devices, data, and critical applications. - Strengthening compliance The Sheriff’s Office has more than 6,900 members and the IT security team oversees a device population of 40,000+. Mobile devices are often on the move, which makes it hard to safeguard sensitive data and stay compliant with the Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS). - Responding to threats immediately The team uses the Absolute platform as its single source of truth. With visibility down to the individual user, the team can act swiftly if a device is lost or stolen by clearing data or freezing the device. This minimizes the risk of a security breach. - The value of Absolute Keith Morrison, Director of Information Security at Cook County Sheriff’s Office, says, “The data on each individual device that we’re tracking through Absolute is way more valuable than the actual hardware itself.” ---- Speaker: Keith Morrison - Director of Information Security at Cook County Sheriff's Office
