Systems Alliance, a Web and IT consulting firm helping clients assess, plan and optimize their IT operations, today announced it will co-host a breakfast seminar for public sector and college IT professionals in Baltimore with Symantec on September 14, 2011 at Baltimore Marriott Inner Harbor at Camden Yards titled, “Data Loss Prevention and Encryption: Reducing Risk While Enabling Effective Government and Education.”
There is no cost to attend the seminar, which is scheduled from 8 am – 12 noon.
Recent security incidents, such as the one which occurred last May at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, where a database with records of 75,000 faculty, staff and students was breached, highlight the challenge facing schools and public-sector institutions. During the September 14th seminar, experts from Symantec will help attendees learn how they can:
- Discover, monitor, and protect confidential data (social security numbers, student records, etc.)
- Safeguard your intellectual property
- Satisfy privacy regulations
- Prevent unauthorized access to portable media
- Monitor and regulate the transfer of data on removable media
- Manage and deploy strong encryption across your entire environment
In addition, attendees will also learn how peer agencies and institutions are using Symantec's DLP and Encryption (Formerly PGP) solutions to deliver comprehensive data protection with proven standards-based technology. Symantec personnel will also provide insight into industry best practices for centralized policy management, accurate compliance-based reporting and true universal management.
