Securely Manage your Employees' Mobile Devices and Laptops
The mobile workforce wouldn't be possible without laptops, PDAs, flash drives, blackberries and cell phones. These mobile devices have made it possible for an enterprise to have their employees work in any location, but at what cost to corporate security?
Employees are traveling with sensitive corporate information on a daily basis. We are all familiar with the high profile thefts of company data and devices that have made the news in the last few months. When a mobile device is lost, the cost is not just to replace the hardware, but the overall cost of protecting data residing on the device.
The technology exists to support remote and mobile workforce, but the necessary security policies for both the mobile devices and the data that resides on those devices is lagging far behind.
The task ahead is for IT management and corporate management to work together in developing policies and controls governing sensitive data residing in mobile devices and securing the mobile devices themselves.
In this web-conference speakers will discuss the latest technologies and their effectiveness to protect your mobile data, share their thoughts about policy and controls to prevent mobile data breaches.
Take away points include:
- Identifying and reducing risks
- Technological and managerial techniques to protect mobile data
- Encrypting data on mobile systems. Is that an effective tool?
- How to protect information from stolen/ missing laptops?
