How to create an identity governance program to help address GDPR

May 2018 is not that far away. Are you ready to meet the requirements of the EU’s data protection regulation?

IT Security professionals today are charting a new course. The techniques used to prevent attacks in the last decade are not working. Today the systemic monitoring aimed at securing information, detects less than one percent of all data breaches. Business leaders need a new approach to secure the future of commerce and address new requlations.

Per Samuelsen, Group CISO & Head of IT Security & Compliance at DSV, one of the world’s largest transport and logistics companies, is charting a course to design a cybersecurity program that can be managed centrally, yet flexible enough to scale across 80 countries around the globe.
