With the ever-increasing trend of microservices architecture, data is more distributed (on-prem, cloud, SaaS) than ever with a greater attack surface and greater risk of data privacy and security violations which can cause serious legal, financial, and reputational risk. In this session we will learn about emerging best practices and new techniques and technologies to ensure data trust, privacy, and data security.


Leading the Way to Intersect Data, Privacy, and Security, While Managing Enterprise Risk
Data, privacy, security and compliance all overlap for organizations. There is synergy to be gained, to manage risks and resources, in most any business, that is subject to local and global regulatory requirements, while also protecting company secrets, and privacy and security of data and systems.

Automation, policy management, security and privacy strategy, and looking at transformation opportunities all fit the bill. We must manage user and client data, while meeting privacy and regulatory requirements, and also meeting business needs. It requires us to balance data quality with business and technology initiatives and deployments, and also managing digital emerging technologies. We’re almost performing a high wire act as we work to pull all these factions together!


The featured speaker will lead us right into a panel that explores these topics further.
