Panel Discussion: Building Compliance and Security Excellence with Data- and Identity-centric Best Practices & Solutions

Panel Discussion: Building Compliance and Security Excellence with Data- and Identity-centric Best Practices & Solutions
Jim Douglas, Operations Security, Broadridge, Rainer Barthel, Security Architect, Mainline and Mary Ann Furno, Senior Principal Product Manager, CA Technologies

The Same Old Data Security Story... or Is It? The global regulatory environment is alive–with GDPR, a crawling vine, making its own path through the global security landscape. Enterprises should look cross-platform for a deep and wide approach to data security. That’s obvious. The crux of it is, how do you secure yourself from mobile to mainframe without overburdening the team, creating gaps in your IT infrastructure–be it mainframe, distributed or hybrid, or engaging an unmanageable number of vendors? What does success even look like? After all, data security regulation is changing, and your business must too, if you want to secure your place in the digital economy.
