How to ensure a successful DLP project roll-out
What does DLP stand for? Data Leakage Prevention or Data Leakage Protection? Many companies wishing to deploy a DLP solution directly look for a tool aiming to detect data leaks. Jérémie Josten will present you with different ways to effectively prevent data leakage as well as the key factors to successfully deliver a DLP project.

6:00 – 6:30 René Eberhard, CEO at keyon AG

Classify or Die
Sensitive data is used and stored on-prem, on mobile devices, and in the cloud. Data loss prevention solutions have to be adapted accordingly to the new challenges. With digital rights management (DRM) data can automatically be classified and protected
on generation or edit. E-discovery capabilities from DRM allow to track who got access to such data by when and where.

Unlike other technologies, the classification and encryption are intrinsically linked with the respective data and thus provides a continuous and transparent protection to the user, regardless of data transmission or location.

The presentation shows the need to classify and protect data as requirement for Data Loss Prevention, Secure Collaboration and the step into the Cloud.

6:30 – 7:00 Barry Cook, Associate Director Global IT Security at Celgene International Sàrl
