Information Control: The Critical Need for a Defensible Position - Securing the Information Ecosystem
Given an overview of Identity Theft, fraud and information exposure participants will discover that the liability of these issues is much broader than they are prepared to manage.
Given case studies and stories from field experience, participants will identify gaps in information compliance policies and practices that place every organization at risk beyond areas of commerce, compliance, and technology.
Upon completion of the session participants will recognize critical gaps in their information ecosystem that need to be addressed in order to create a defensible position in the case of a breach.
