If your shared files could talk, how surprised would you be to learn where they have been, how they have been accessed and by whom? Chances are, your security policy and defenses to protect sensitive, confidential and regulated data held in files are insufficient. With the expanded use of today’s enterprise content management, cloud storage and web collaboration platforms comes greater data leakage risks. How can organizations gain stronger data privacy controls to safeguard files against hacker, malware, shadow IT, cloud application and personal mobile device exposures?
A new SANS Ask the Expert webcast, “File Security 2.0 – Collaboration Controls, Considerations and Technology,” will deep dive into the next-generation file security questions. The expert session will examine file sharing trends and data leakage risks, data security policy extension and control options. The session will also present a reference architecture to enhance persistent file security and audit functionality across the file lifecycle spectrum within and outside the corporate network.
The session will be led by expert Barbara Filkins, SANS senior analyst, who will be joined by Scott Gordon, chief operating officer at FinalCode.
This SANS Ask the Expert webcast, sponsored by FinalCode, will take place on Tuesday, July 21, 2015 at 1 p.m. EDT. FinalCode invites users, media and system integrators to register at https://www.sans.org/webcasts/file-security-20-collaboration-controls-c
The webcast will present proven processes, options and technology considerations that InfoSec professionals can put to immediate use.
Topics to be discussed include:
- Top 10 steps to rapidly scope file sharing security projects
- Pragmatic and novel preventative, detective and corrective measures
- Avoiding common technical control pitfalls: policy, deployment, legality, user acceptance
- FinalCode architecture, capabilities and application
