The new data protection challenge: Data governance across the digital estate

Increased regulatory requirements make it imperative that organizations understand and manage where sensitive data lives and how it is being used. However, research shows that 69% of data is redundant, obsolete, or trivial and often resides in duplicate, siloed systems. It is more important than ever that companies build an effective information governance program that works across functional teams and can be implemented throughout the information lifecycle.

In this session we will cover key challenges in identifying sensitive data and applying policies that meet the needs of both corporate policies and regulatory requirements. We will talk through the data lifecycle—where data is created, how it is classified, where it moves, and retention/deletion policies.

This conversation will explore governance options that enhance your data protection strategy and help meet privacy and other regulatory requirements to reduce risk.

3-5 Key Takeaways:

  • Intelligent strategies to avoid the risk associated with a “retain-all” data policy
  • Discover how to use automation to know your data, classify and protect it.
  • Explore data governance options that enable organizations to retain or delete content with policy management and deletion workflows for email, documents, instant messages and more.
