We recently sat down with Tony Themelis to discuss ways that security teams can optimize their data protection strategies and get the most out of their data protection solutions. In his role, Tony works closely with Digital Guardian customers to identify the top challenges facing security teams and develop solutions to meet those needs. As a result, Tony has a wealth of experience and expertise on the concerns that are top of mind for security practitioners at organizations today. This series features Tony discussing some of those concerns and providing strategies for optimizing your data protection efforts to overcome them.
Getting to data visibility and insights quickly
It’s a commonly held misconception that all of your data must be identified and classified before you can start protecting it. In this video, Tony advises on how security teams can get to actionable data visibility and insights without first conducting a detailed data discovery and classification process that can take months to complete.
Simplifying your data protection programs for quick wins
Many data protection programs are bogged down by a cumbersome deployment process, delaying protection efforts and time to value for businesses. In this video, Tony details a strategy that enables businesses to use data insights to drive meaningful protection policies that are tailored to your most critical risks.
Stay tuned for Part Two in this series, in which Tony will discuss topics such as employee security education, outsourcing security, and strategies for building defenses against new threat types.
