Panel Discussion Description:

Executives across large and small organizations are using a bevy of devices and applications to access and exchange important corporate data. And now this data is moving from mobile devices (sometimes personal vs. business-owned) directly to the cloud without even hitting traditional business networks at higher and higher rates, according to recent findings from Gartner.

Compound the enabling technologies on which we all rely to do our jobs with the dynamic ways we all want to engage with one another while working and it becomes clear that safeguarding critical data and the access to it must be just as progressive. During this panel, we discuss how data being exchanged and stored in myriad ways must be protected and how identity and access controls work now and must evolve to meet constantly changing business environments and employee needs.
