London, UK (PRWEB) July 13, 2009
As government data handling has come under increased scrutiny, organizations need to know how to protect their environments and comply with the latest security mandates. 'The Data Handling Procedures in Government' report ('the Report') sets out clear and mandatory procedures to be followed by all UK government employees that have access to citizen data. Individual departments, as of June 2008, have responsibility to show compliance on their progress in meeting the requirements of the new Data Handling procedures, including enforcing policies to manage the use of removable media and to encrypt removable devices such as laptops, desktops and USB drives.
In order to help organizations effectively protect data handling procedures, Lumension®, the global leader in operational endpoint security, has conducted a webinar titled: UK Government Data Handling - A Clear Direction for the Future. In this webinar, Lumension Senior Vice President of Internationals, Andrew Clarke, and Project Lead Research Analyst, Nigel Stanley, educate organizations on the requirements in the data handling report as well as understanding how to protect their valuable information.
In this Webinar attendees will:
- Learn the requirements set forth in the Report regarding consistency, culture, scrutiny and accountability
- Understand the key steps and capabilities to effectively protect citizens' data through visibility and control of removable media used by government personnel, auditing of data transferred to and from such media, and the encryption of data stored on removable devices
- Discover whether the Report has produced noticeable results
- Listen to industry experts analyse the Report and share their views on the UK government's ability to handle citizen's data securely
To listen to the webinar, please visit UK Government Data Handling - A Clear Direction for the Future.
