Fotra's Data Security Week LIVE to Give Powerful Insights into Navigating Today’s Cyberthreat Landscape

Posted on June 21, 2021

MINNEAPOLIS (June 16, 2021)Fortra today announced an upcoming virtual event designed to educate IT and security professionals about how to meet the challenges of the rapidly changing data security and compliance landscape. Data Security Week LIVE will feature a panel of security experts who will explore the often-hidden vulnerabilities surrounding corporate data in all its forms at rest and during transfer. 

There are multiple factors creating a perfect storm for global organizations working diligently to protect their data from uncontrolled internal and external access. “Not only is data being produced and stored in unprecedented volumes, but it’s also being accessed via expanding remote workforces using hybrid IT environments,” said Kate Bolseth, CEO, Fortra. “This means the corporate perimeter is much more difficult to patrol than ever before, giving cybercriminals and opportunistic insiders the chance to exploit growing weaknesses. Data Security Week LIVE was created specifically to help inundated IT and security professionals understand these threats and how to take both preventive and corrective action to protect their data, their businesses, and their own customers.”  

The experts will also present deep dive sessions on the security strategies and complementary software tools that can secure data throughout its lifecycle. The event will run June 21 – 25 and feature a block of two high-impact sessions per day.

Data Security Week LIVE sessions will cover: 

•    Expert insights on the most prevalent challenges and trends facing leaders related to data security today 
•    Best practices for securing data across its lifecycle
•    Essential technologies for protecting data, from classification and encryption to controlling user access
