As security and data privacy become increasingly critical business issues, the unknown and unmanaged “dark data” within corporate file shares can pose an immense risk. However, organizations cannot manage data that they cannot account for. Gaining control of these documents starts with assessment, usually in the form of file analysis. Both the webinar and IG Leadership Discussion take an in-depth look at the role of file analysis in data security, and the ways that file analysis can tie effectively into a long-term IG framework.
