Understanding Managed File Transfer - Insights & Best Practices

As IT departments continually adopt new technologies to improve the performance of their systems, productivity of their end users and relationships with trading partners, they are faced with numerous challenges. One such challenge companies face today is securing and automating large file transfers. Traditional file transfer systems and mediums no longer meet the needs of most organizations or their trading partners, especially when data exposure is a concern. Many organizations have developed in-house solutions that are difficult to manage, lack the ability to track and audit file transfers, and expose the organization to security breaches. A Managed File Transfer (MFT) solution should be secure, easy to manage, and have the flexibility to integrate with existing technologies.

In this presentation, you will:

  • Gain a better understanding of the business challenges and drivers of file transfers.
  • Identify the security concerns around traditional file transfer systems and mediums.
  • Learn best practices to develop security architectures for file transfers.
  • Understand how a MFT solution can meet the needs of your stakeholders

10 Simple Rules for Implementing an Encryption Strategy

Organizations are becoming more and more proactive about data security, with data encryption viewed as a core element to their defensive measures.

Encryption of data is being adopted at a rapid rate to comply with industry regulations, protect intellectual property, obtain safe harbor from data breachdisclosure laws, and effectively manage risk. As encryption proliferates, IT professionals are making critical decisions that directly contribute to, or detract from, an organization's ability to effectively manage encryption keys and data security.

Data is an organization's most valuable asset and it must be protected.

Designing and implementing an encryption strategy is not complicated if you understand the needs of your organization and establish the right decision-making criteria for encryption solutions. Simplicity, breadth, manageability and efficiency are the primary requirements security-minded organizations must build into their encryption strategy. A solution that has the least complexity will make the jobs of IT professionals easier, be more cost-effective and time-efficient, while at the same time protecting data and meeting compliance standards.

The Data Breaches You Don’t See Hurt You the Most

Data loss is a growing risk, especially as prosumers bring more and more of their personal technology into the workplace. IT departments not only need to enable person-to-server and system-to-system file interactions, but also must create and enforce consistent policies and processes regarding how information is moved between people inside and outside a company. This session is meant for businesses and consumers at all levels to understand the current managed file transfer (MFT) market and what comes next. This session will also map business requirements through the presentation of real world use cases.

DLP Program Management and the Role of Rights Management

According to the Ponemon Institute, companies spend an average of $202 per lost or compromised record of personal data. They go on to estimate that nearly 245 million records have been breached since January 2005. Changes in law and liability are generating more costly and extensive lawsuits around the loss of personal data. The wide distribution of sensitive and valuable data across organizations-- from databases, laptops, mobile computers, thumb drives, backup media, and more— has produced a formidable financial risk. This presentation will cover the latest trends, processes, and technology in data leakage to enterprise rights management and data classification. You will gain an understanding of what it takes to craft a strategy and solutions that address your business risk and security budget.
