Case study Data security: how to ensure the protection of your data across complex legacy and modern IT systems

The use of data and information has become the lifeblood of any business, organisation and or large enterprise for business performance and competitive advantage. However, the pervasive availability and access to data, including very sensitive, privileged, contextualised information, has become a concern and definite area of focus for Boards and Executives alike. In addition, large organisations are faced with a mix of legacy and new systems with a high probability of duplication, including huge historical archives of data across the enterprise.
This reality poses significant risk and consequence from a regulatory compliance perspective and hefty fines, reputational impact, including business sustainability, as data can be misused for fraudulent and or malicious objectives. An integrated and holistic approach towards protecting data and data security must be formalised across business structures, products and services, people and culture, process, data/ information, technology and systems. Engagement, decision-making and governance structures are critical in ensuring that data protection strategy execution and operationalisation is achieved and data protection resilience maturity is optimised. This presentation will explore how to:

  • Simplify a complex problem using a structured, systems approach
  • Identify the core components required to drive a data protection programme
