Webcast: Securing your most valuable asset: Information

About this event

Date: Wednesday May 3rd, 2017
Time: 1:00pm EDT

Data breaches make headlines every week.

When most companies think of information security, they think cyber security but it’s more than that.  Consider how security of information is addressed within your firewall and realise that your data is at risk in any form. 

Organisations are spending billions of dollars on perimeter defense and data loss prevention solutions to protect the network firewall - according to Gartner, $21B in 2015 alone.  But even if you invest properly to prevent an incursion onto your network from the outside, there are still loopholes inside your organisation that allow for accidental or nefarious information leaks.

According to world-leader market research engine, IDC:
  • Greater than 40% of data breaches come from inside an organisation
  • Approximately 21% of all internal data breaches involve printed data
Join us for this informative webcast to learn about:
  • How Canadian Information Security legislation defines your obligation to safeguarding your data behind the firewall.
  • Key ways to address these at-risk areas of your business and gain control of your document security today.
