    Guest Speaker: Chris Berube, Director of IT at Law Offices of Joe Bornstein
    There seems to be news of a major data breach in the headlines almost every week. Conventional wisdom suggests that securing the network and perimeter of an IT environment should be enough to protect a company from a breach – but what if that breach originates internally? How can a situation like this be averted? Today companies need to protect themselves from the inside out by first recognizing which of their data is sensitive and then ensuring that it’s properly secured.

    Join us and learn how Chris Berube, Director of IT at Law Offices of Joe Bornstein, has rethought information security in order to protect his company from the inside out.

    We’ll discuss how to:
    1.Identify files which contain sensitive information

    3.Monitor proactively when secured data has been moved to public shares
