Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Enabling End-to-End Data Security & Privacy

The ultimate combination to enrich your data security and privacy protection: Every organization has sensitive data. With that comes the legal responsibility to be good stewards to provide protections or security and privacy. Understanding what kinds of data you have and where it resides is a challenge- because it lives everywhere, not just on Office 365 products. Microsoft AIP/MIP is a fairly common application in business today and many organizations capitalize on its built in features that provides some security to Microsoft products. But, with data security and data privacy will that layer of defense be enough for the entire ecosystem that isn’t a Microsoft utility? Spirion partners with Microsoft to enrich that layer of data security and privacy protection that AIP and MIP addresses and then goes beyond what they don’t secure- your file servers, non-Microsoft cloud technologies, other non-Microsoft on premise cloud databases and Microsoft, Mac, and Linux work-stations.

Join us for a 30 minute tech-talk where we take a look at how Spirion complements Microsoft AIP and MIP to provide your organization with what you need for data security and privacy.

Key takeaways include:
- How a complete data discovery framework in your entire ecosystem can protect your organization and the community you serve
- How Spirion can discover common sensitive data (PII) and complex data specific to your organization, above and beyond the normal Microsoft Regular Expression with high confidence.
- How Spirion classifications and labeling provides AIP and MIP users more options and business context than the single one that Microsoft provides
- Know the difference between protecting data at rest and data in motion and how Spirion plus AIP and MIP scanning can be a game changer for your business

  • Reduce the Complexity of State Data Protection Law Compliance Dec 14 2021 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Scott M. Giordano, V.P. and Sr. Counsel, Privacy and Compliance, Spirion
    The importance (and complexity) of data protection is increasing in proportion to the exponential amount of data enterprises continue to create and store. Data security and privacy policies guide the cleansing, organization, and remediation of sensitive data to ensure it is protected from compromise and misuse. Who is responsible for the time-consuming enforcement of data security and privacy policy enforcement on these endless collections of data? Many enterprises leave it up to the users to identify, tag, and secure their organization’s most sensitive data. Such manual measures, however, are not reliable nor sustainable.
    Join us to learn how to auto-enforce data protection policies using Spirion Playbook automation. Our team will demonstrate the ability to build automated and persistent data classification and remediation rules that align with your data protection policies.
  • How to Protect your Sensitive Data from Ransomware Attacks Dec 9 2021 6:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Rob Server, Director of Product Marketing and Jason Price, Solutions Engineer at Spirion
    We are all at risk of a ransomware infection – fraudulent websites, insecure downloads, and spam email are all easy attack vectors. According to the 2021 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, “The major change this year with regard to action types was ransomware coming out like a champ and grabbing the third place in breaches (appearing in 10% of them, more than doubling its frequency from last year).” In this webinar, we will discuss the importance of avoiding a ‘digital hostage’ situation where you are paying large sums of ransom to release your sensitive data.

    Learn how Spirion Sensitive Data Platform helps lower the risk associated with bad actors attempting to exfiltrate your data. See first-hand what Spirion brings when it comes to cyber defense and sensitive data protection.
  • 5 Must-Haves in Developing an Insider Threat Program Dec 3 2021 6:00 pm UTC 63 mins
    Phillip Curran CISO & CPO, Cooper University Health and Billy VanCannon, Head of Product, Spirion
    Gone are the days when everything that happened at work occurred between ‘these four walls.’ The world was challenged and rose to the occasion. People are working from literally everywhere. Unfortunately, greed didn’t take a vacation. We’ve heard stories of malicious employees allowing access to corporate networks for a payout, negligent employees posting data in a public cloud container, accidental exposure through a targeted phishing scheme, and compromised attackers exfiltrating corporate data.

    It was a little easier to spot abnormal behavior or disgruntled employee in the old days. With people working from all over, it makes identifying and monitoring the sensitive data individuals have access to much more complicated.

    Our panel will identify the different types of insider threats they see in the wild and offer their advice on the 5 ‘Must Haves’ to help deter this growing threat to corporate data security and privacy.
  • Advancing GDPR Compliance, Post-Schrems II, Using Data Classification Nov 15 2021 4:00 pm UTC 54 mins
    Scott M. Giordano, VP and Sr Counsel, Privacy Compliance at Spirion, Wally Bitautk, VP Global Business Development at Seclore
    Over the past 20 years, data classification has consistently been proven effective in protecting sensitive data. Combining classification with modern Digital Rights Management (DRM) enables organizations to precisely define the “who”, “what”, “when”, and “where” of sensitive data access, promoting compliance with a wide range of cybersecurity and privacy mandates. In the wake of last summer’s Schrems II decision from the Court of Justice of the European Union, the “where” of access has become especially relevant for complying with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

    Schrems II mandates additional controls for the transfer of personal data out of the EU and controlling the “where” data can be accessed represents a powerful tool not only for complying with the GDPR, but for many other cybersecurity mandates. In this presentation, data protection technical and legal experts will discuss employing a combination of data classification and DRM for compliance with the GDPR and similar laws.

    Takeaways include:

    • A summary of the Schrems II decision and why it matters to you now
    • The relationship between classification and policy enforcement
    • Leveraging data classification and DRM for legal compliance – including the “where”
  • Benefits of Data Asset Inventory when Tracking and Managing Sensitive Data Nov 9 2021 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Rob Server, Director of Product Marketing and Jason Price, Solutions Engineer at Spirion
    Businesses worldwide are taking a much closer look at their data to ensure their most sensitive information is safeguarded under the requirements of laws, regulations, and professional obligations. Knowing what data you collect dramatically reduces risk and uncertainty. According to the RSA Data Privacy and Security Survey, since 64% of U.S. users and 72% of U.K. users agree that “if a company loses my personal data/information, I feel inclined to blame them above anyone else, even the hacker,” the risk from data asset ambiguity is enormous.

    Grasp the particulars of data inventory and data mapping – From what to include in a data asset inventory, how to get started, and the benefits of data asset control that are too important to ignore. See Spirion Sensitive Data Platform in action during this live product demonstration.
  • A single source of truth for sensitive data: Managing cyber and privacy risks Nov 8 2021 8:00 pm UTC 47 mins
    Jason Hodgert, Product Marketing Manager, Spirion, and Rob Server, Director of Product Marketing, Spirion
    Data privacy cannot be achieved with a one-size-fits-all solution. Regulations, business requirements, and customer concerns can vary between regions, industries, revenue, and more. While many agree that data discovery is a foundational aspect of any data privacy management program, what’s less clear is where organizations go from there.

    The concept of profiles in the NIST Privacy Framework addresses this and lays out strategies for organizations to map out the next steps in their privacy planning depending on factors such as organizational maturity, capacity for change, and regulatory requirements.

    This Tech Talk will detail how the world’s most accurate data discovery in Spirion Sensitive Data Platform (Spirion SDP) can be used to expand privacy operations with a blend of extended core functionality and intelligent optional add-ons.

    Key takeaways:
    • Discover the depth, breadth and accuracy of our Privacy-Grade solution, Spirion SDP
    • Explore how to automate SRR fulfilment with speed and accuracy using Spirion Sensitive Data Finder
    • Learn how to leverage Spirion Sensitive Data Watcher to monitor, connect and understand sensitive data

    With multiple tools to choose from, Spirion empowers organizations to design privacy programs that are right-sized for their company’s data privacy and security needs and to be confident that their data is protected – no matter where it lives.

  • U.S. Data Privacy Trailblazer: Virginia comprehensive data privacy law Oct 25 2021 8:00 pm UTC 38 mins
    Scott M. Giordano & VA Senator David W. Marsden
    On March 2, Virginia became the nation’s second state to adopt a comprehensive data privacy law—and the first state to enact such protection of its own accord. Introduced by Senator David W. Marsden, the progressive Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act (VCDPA) reflects many of the consumer rights granted under California’s privacy laws—but goes a step further—by aligning with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation in a few critical areas.

    Spirion’s Scott Giordano, VP and Sr. Counsel, Privacy and Compliance, has the privilege to sit down with Senator Marsden to discuss the spark behind the introduction of the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act and the nuances of the VCDPA for companies doing business in Virginia or marketing to Virginian citizens.

    Can’t miss topics include:

    • Who must comply with the VCDPA?
    • Why is the VCDPA important for Virginia residents?
    • What are the business obligations of VCDPA?
    • How will VCDPA be enforced?
    • What additional state legislation is expected across the U.S. in 2021?
  • The California Privacy Rights Act of 2020: Your Questions, Answered Oct 18 2021 3:00 pm UTC 61 mins
    Scott M. Giordano, V.P. and Sr. Counsel, Privacy and Compliance, Spirion
    What is sensitive personal information?  What about cross-context behavioral advertising? Where do I have to have to search when a consumer requests their personal information?  These and a whole host of other questions have been raised by voter approval of Prop. 24, the California Privacy Rights Act of 2020 (CPRA). 

    In this interactive webinar, we’ll take a look at this new law and how it expands on the new and wide-ranging consumer rights created by the CCPA.  We’ll also answer your questions, live, and offer insight into getting your organization ready in advance of the compliance deadline. 

    Takeaways include:
    - A summary of new consumer rights under the law
    - Likely changes you’ll need for your information security program
    - An understanding of the “opt-in” vs. “opt-out” rules for collecting, selling, and sharing personal information

  • Florida HB 1297: What Is It and What Does It Mean For My IT Security Team? Recorded: Oct 11 2021 60 mins
    Scott M. Giordano (Spirion), Trace Hollifield (GuidePoint Security), and Heath Beach (Avail Strategies)
    As the wave of ransomware and other attacks on government entities continues to rise, legislatures have responded with the creation of government security operations centers (or SOCs) or similar cybersecurity programs. In particular, the state of Florida has recently passed into law a program to fund its own SOC. Starting a SOC raises all kinds of questions: What are the key components? What kinds of professionals should be staffing it? How can it be developed on time and on budget? In this panel discussion, cybersecurity technical and legal professionals will offer their insight into how best to get a cybersecurity program off the ground.

    Takeaways include:

    • The role of a cybersecurity steering committee
    • Basic capabilities all SOCs should have
    • Working with legal and audit teams
  • Subject Rights Requests simplified: Using Spirion to maintain privacy compliance Recorded: Oct 5 2021 37 mins
    Jason Hodgert (Marketing Product Manager, Spirion) and Matthew Barnett (Sr. Technical Product Manager, Spirion)
    To date, 31 states have either signed, passed, or introduced GDPR/CCPA-style legislation to protect the privacy of consumers which is transforming how business and private sectors alike manage customer data.

    A common thread among many of these regulations are a list of consumer rights with regards to the handling of the data organizations like yours collect every day. While the naming and number of these rights vary from state to state, they commonly include, but are not limited to the Right of Access, the Right of Rectification, and the Right of Deletion.

    Consumers exercise these rights through what is commonly referred to as a Data Subject Access Request (DSAR), Individual Rights Request (IRR) or Subject Rights Request (SRR) detailing their personal data footprint. Under these regulations, these requests must be handled promptly, accurately, and without exception.

    On this Tech Talk, we will introduce Spirion Sensitive Data Finder to demonstrate how this tool protects and simplifies Rights Requests for current and future regulations. Key takeaways:

    -Find personal or sensitive data, wherever it lives (you can’t protect what you don’t know you have!)
    -Identify the data relationships between documents and locations associated with the same person through our personal data recognizer technology
    -Build an inventory of discovered subjects for fast reporting to fulfill DSAR, IRR, and SRR requests within a given compliance window through user-friendly dashboards
    -Build and generates subject reports containing a summary of data types
  • GDPR vs. CCPA vs. CCPA 2.0: 10 Critical Differences Recorded: Sep 29 2021 61 mins
    Scott M. Giordano, V.P. and Sr. Counsel, Privacy and Compliance, Spirion
    “The CCPA is just the U.S. version of the GDPR.”

    “If I’m compliant with the GDPR, I’m also compliant with the CCPA.”

    “Personal data under GDPR is the same as personal information under CCPA.”

    All of this common wisdom about the GDPR and CCPA is arguably false. In fact, there are numerous differences, some great and some subtle, between the two that serve as traps for the unwary. Add to this the upcoming CCPA 2.0, with its new class of (and significant restrictions on the use of) personal information, and the potential for consumer complaints and disputes with supply-chain members becomes dramatic. In this interactive webinar, a privacy and security industry veteran will analyze, compare, and contrast these laws and offer insight into what they mean for your data protection program.

    Takeaways include:

    -Key differences between the three laws that impact your data protection strategy
    -Avoiding conflicts with supply-chain members and other business partners
    -How to leverage current compliance efforts for CCPA 2.0 and other upcoming data protection laws
