The 90-minute session is sponsored by Symantec and will feature insight from Patrick Howard, CISO of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, as well as Robert Hamilton, Senior Product Marketing Manager - Data Loss Prevention, Symantec, and Eric Cole, Security Expert, SANS Institute Faculty Fellow.
About the session: Organizations were embarrassed by the WikiLeaks episode that resulted in the unauthorized release of more than 250,000 sensitive and classified government documents. This leak - and the threat of others in both the public and private sectors - forces information security leaders to ask: What more can we do to protect access, portability and privacy of critical data?
This session's expert panel will discuss:
- Lessons learned from the WikiLeaks exposures;
- Strategies to control users' access to private information;
- Tools and techniques for preventing data loss.
