Data Privacy and Data Security: How to Comply with Regulations?

 

There is no privacy without security. But security alone is not enough to protect your customer’s sensitive data. Strong privacy protection enables you to unlock data for new purposes and makes the job of the security team a lot easier.

Join this session to learn:

  • How to make sure your business complies with regulations?

  • Why both data privacy and data security should matter to you?

  • How robust security controls are not enough to adequately protect your data?

  • How the focus is expanding from the perimeter to implementing privacy controls on the data itself?

  • How privacy technologies and access controls work hand-in-hand to ensure your data is protected?
