Title: Best Practices in Information Security: Technology, Security, Law and Regulations
Overview: Identity theft is a crime in which an impostor obtains key pieces of personally identifiable information (PII), such as Social Security numbers and driver’s license numbers, and uses them for their own personal gain. The most widely recognized form of this crime is financial: lines of credit, account takeovers or the establishment of tenancy or utilities. In reality, identity theft crimes vary widely and can involve criminal, government and medical issues. Identity theft is so prevalent that it is number one crime in the United States today. Fortunately, companies that collect and store consumer PII can protect this important information using data security technology and by implementing data protection best practices.
The seminar will cover these topics:
— Data breach statistics
— Threats and protections: How a data breach occurs
— The regulatory environment
— Compliance versus security: Is compliance enough?
— Technology and security
— New frontiers, future perspectives, and data protection best practices and technology
When: Thursday, April 2, 2009, 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
A cocktail reception will be held after the seminar
