Protecting Sensitive Data


While protecting people and those who access and use data is important, we also need to think about how we go about defending data. Reactively following data movement is not enough. We need to fully understand the context, behaviors and threats associated with data before we can become successful defenders of data.

In this Power Series, we’ll get into the steps and approaches of taking a data defender mindset.

Join us to learn:

  • How to identify sensitive data in motion and at rest
  • How to get critical context around risky data movement as it happens
  • How to protect sensitive data from careless, compromised or malicious users
  • Best practices in data protection

Power Series Gifts are only available to qualified attendees in the U.S. or Canada.

Identity is the New Attack Surface


Identities are a company’s crown jewels when it comes to access and privileges to corporate systems. And attackers know the power they have if identities are compromised. Compromised identities can result in data exfiltration, takeover over IT environments, or launch of ransomware attacks.

Research has shown that 51% of organizations have suffered a breach or attack due to employees with unnecessarily high permissions. And 16% of organizations have suffered a breach or attack due to malware designed to dump cached credentials from devices. In fact, 1 in 6 endpoints contain vulnerable identity risk.

Join our panel of experts in this Power Series to learn:

  • How to defend against identity threats and stop attackers
  • How these attacks lead to ransomware or data exfiltration
  • The importance of an active detection response solution
  • Best practices in building identity threat defenses
