Abstract: 

When an organization has a distributed or mobile workforce or requires executives or key personnel to work from home, the issue of securing the business critical data becomes especially problematic. In most cases today, responsibility for the security of the file data is the left up to the individual end user. Theft or even the borrowing of the mobile device leaves critical file data exposed. The rapid growth of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) brings cost savings and efficiency for organizations but also a greater risk of security breaches. Today, no control or reporting of use of critical data on mobile devices is possible and this creates regulatory problems.

Learning Objectives

Attendees will be able to identify the problems and issues with securing file data.
Attendees will be able to show how critical file data can be secured with encryption in a way that allows simple yet secure access to authenticated users
Attendees will be able to show how all this can be done while maintaining regulatory oversight, access control, and a secure audit trail.
