Webinar Recap: Executing Your Data Strategy with Confidence

The key to governing and securing your file-share content isn’t complicated. 

It’s not a secret, and anyone can do it. Governing your organization’s data requires a mindset of being proactive, or anticipating today what you will need tomorrow, next month, or even years down the road.

Changes in file sharing and network drive governance are usually driven by pending new privacy and PII (Personally Identifiable Information) legislation, threats of large fines for inaction, and the incredible reputational damage that can occur from a data breach that compromises the PII of clients. For whatever reason, large companies want large swathes of data to be on the move, and quickly.

Data Security Risks

The scary part? Data breaches in these scenarios aren’t rare or irregular. With more unstructured content growing exponentially each day, human minds and IT teams just aren’t able to read through and parse the massive amounts of content produced. As PII and security concerns grow alongside the massing data, access control limitations, and limited capacity for meta-tagging and searching create more versions of files, more locations, and more confusion than ever. 

In other words, the data breaches that make the news media are not outliers or fools; they are just organizations that have had the extra bad luck of being noticed. But these issues are far more common than they should be if we want to be safe and secure with our client’s files.

Webinar Highlights

In the “Executing Your Data Strategy with Confidence” webinar, we highlight:

  1.  Bad Media Concerning Privacy and Records Governance: Why do some companies find themselves in the news for data breaches and losses? Governance goals require a variety of ways and mechanisms to secure your PII, and failure to govern your data appropriately may result in a very public failure that loses client and consumer trust.
  1. The challenges of ‘lift and shift’ and content governance change in companies: Challenges grow exponentially just as the data does. How can we stay on top of content growth when human faculties can no longer handle it, and when changes in data management practices are difficult habits to employees to break? 
  1. Aligning KPIs to overcome the hidden problems of content management: The reality of data management is that all users must feel that changes are worthwhile for their personal KPIs, or old habits will remain. Hidden problems can be overcome and governance, privacy, security, and search ease, can be achieved if KPIs are unified with new data governance practices that proactively eliminate hazards like data exceptions and corruptions.

Importance of Taking Action

If you take action now instead of waiting for data transfer or breach crisis to unfold, your data can be clean, organized, secure, and governed by your organization’s iron fist rather than becoming lost in fields of terabytes. 

Simple actions today can easily prevent crises and inefficiencies tomorrow. All it takes is foresight, and letting a proactive mindset govern and secure what you and your clients hold dear.
