[1-28-22] “Hacking Data First Security” – CISO Series Video Chat

Please join us on Friday January 28th, 2022 for CISO Series Video Chat: “Hacking Data First Security: An hour of critical thinking about focusing your security program on data.”

Register for January 28th, 2022 CISO Series Video Chat

Joining me for this discussion will be:

In preparation for our discussion, think about the following:

  • As a thought exercise, what would you do if you focused your security program on just the asset? 
  • Users have too much access to data. Why aren’t we limiting access?
  • Even if you manage users really well, it’s still not enough.
  • Why is it protecting data so hard? Once it’s outside of the database it’s chaos. 
  • Data proliferates. An average customer record can appear in multiple files. Often they appear in different versions of the same file.
  • Files are usually not monitored. So how do you deal with credit card fraud if you’re not monitoring credit card statements?

It all starts at 10 AM Pacific/1 PM Eastern. At the end of the hour [11 AM Pacific/2 PM Eastern] we’ll switch gears to our meetup where everyone will get a chance to chat face to face.

Got feedback? Join the conversation on LinkedIn.

HUGE thanks to our sponsor Varonis
