The next step in data security

On demand Mind the Gap, our latest Regcast, sees BitDefender’s Andrew Maguire, FreeForm Dynamics’ Andrew Buss and Reg broadcast editor Tim Phillips discussing:

  • Key changes in the threat environment.
  • Understanding the value of data.
  • Smarter security that doesn't mean harder security.
  • Practical steps that can be taken to make security work for your business.

What's it all about, then?

When it comes to security we seem to start out with the best intentions and build a Fort Knox to protect our applications, data and interactions.

But shrinking budgets and juggling priorities often means it's a case of good intentions rather than vault-like security.

The result is either a potentially leaky security patchwork or a blanket approach that is expensive and difficult to implement.

Getting on top of the problem may mean turning the whole approach to security around. ®
