Growing challenges associated with the collection, management, and use of information are motivating increased attention to differentiating and more effectively managing information risk. Across the globe there is a growing recognition of the need to protect and manage information, with required tasks ranging from monitoring data quality and protecting against data breaches to compliance with numerous laws and regulations, as well as responding to customer concerns about ethical and responsible corporate use of personal data.
As organizations expand their data management footprints across increasingly complex hybrid multicloud environments, there has never been a greater need for establishing a holistic organizational perspective on information risk management.
In this 90-minute workshop, David Loshin will explore ideas for characterizing areas of information risk and their corresponding impacts to the business. He will then discuss ways to formalize enterprise information policies in concert with architecting socio-technical environments to monitor compliance with externally imposed information governance requirements.
By acknowledging and then mitigating information risks, data management professionals can work with compliance directors to inspire a high level of confidence that sensitive information is protected from unauthorized use.
Attendees will learn about:
- Information risk domains
- Creating a taxonomy for sensitive data
- Classifying data assets according to sensitivity and risk domains
- Data policy management
