Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) April 04, 2016
AvePoint, the Microsoft Cloud expert, announced today that Dana Simberkoff, AvePoint Chief Compliance and Risk Officer, will join Bojana Bellamy, President of the Center for Information Policy Leadership, and H. Leigh Feldman, Citi Head of Privacy and Information Compliance, to lead the session “Bridging Privacy, Security, and IT to Prepare for GDPR and Beyond” at 2:30-3:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, April 6, during the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) Global Privacy Summit 2016.
The new European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) creates many obligations – both from new and older concepts – where more connection between the CPO, CISO, IT, and CIO is necessary. The new IT obligations may cause the most impact for companies around the world, because they may require a fundamental shift in operational processes for IT and business process optimization, as well as program management. The session will explore specific tactical steps privacy professionals can take to brief executive management teams, and assess and improve the awareness, maturity, and level of preparedness of your organization for the GDPR.
AvePoint is a gold sponsor at IAPP Global Privacy Summit 2016, taking place April 5-6 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. Throughout the conference, AvePoint will showcase its latest compliance, data protection, privacy, and security solutions to help organizations implement a unified risk management strategy across their cloud, hybrid, on-premises, and file share environments.

Compliance and Data Protection: AvePoint Compliance Guardian helps mitigate risk from the moment data is created through its entire lifecycle by proactively monitoring and neutralizing violations of privacy, security, and compliance. The platform provides individualized reports and dashboards, surfacing only relevant issues and automatically delegating violations to the right people so they can be addressed quickly.
Cloud: Compliance Guardian Online, part of AvePoint Online Services – used by three million Office 365 users worldwide – allows organizations to minimize risk of privacy violations and information security breaches as well as mitigate accessibility and site quality issues for websites, web applications, and SharePoint Online sites without adding additional infrastructure.
File Analysis: AvePoint File Analysis Services, an integrated component of AvePoint Compliance Guardian, identifies which files reside where and who has access to them – reducing the risk of privacy or sensitive information breaches by increasing visibility into an organization’s unstructured data. By discovering, mapping, and classifying the unstructured data – especially within file shares – organizations can make more informed decisions regarding which data to keep and remove.
Governance: DocAve Governance Automation allows an organization to provide end users with a business-centric, role-based service catalog for provisioning, restructuring, or migrating content across cloud-hosted, hybrid, or on-premises SharePoint deployments.
Privacy: The AvePoint Privacy Impact Assessment (APIA) solution – a free tool exclusively distributed by the IAPP – mitigates the risk inherent with manual privacy impact assessments, helping organizations understand and automate the process of evaluating, assessing, and reporting on the privacy implications of their enterprise IT systems.
