This webinar will help ensure you have a clear understanding of:

Meet our Latest Solution, HiSoftware Security Sheriff for File Shares

Compliance auditing, granular document security and tracking capabilities for Windows Server File Share content

The new Security Sheriff for File Shares helps organizations manage and automate compliance with policies for content security, compliance and privacy. It performs several key functions:

  • Scans existing file share content. This process identifies sensitive documents by looking at their entire contents. This is a key concern for companies who have accumulated massive amounts of data on file shares, and often do not know where or how much sensitive data exists; and
  • Auto-classifies content to control access and set distribution restrictions. Once sensitive data is identified, Security Sheriff uses metadata-driven, item-level security to automatically classify content to restrict access and control what can be done with it. This includes encrypting the information or restricting document actions, including print, save as, copy and email, based on the level of sensitive information contained within.
  • Tracks who has accessed the data and what actions have been performed, to better aid auditing and risk management.

Organizations using Windows Server File Shares in addition to SharePoint for storage and collaboration can leverage Security Sheriff’s rules across both platforms to centrally manage policies, classifications and controls.

Get Your GRC House in Order: Fundamental Steps Before Employing an Automated Solution

Your organization could be at risk because of the scattered and disconnected approaches of past compliance information and processes. To prevent unanticipated risk exposure, your organization may require a governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) strategy that takes into account a thorough understanding of the state of your environment.

So how do you get your GRC house in order?

Michael Rasmussen of Corporate Integrity will answer just that in a complimentary webinar that will examine why organizations need to develop a strategic plan to manage GRC information and processes, and how to put a plan in place. Topics will include:

  • Managing scattered GRC information
  • How isolated risk and compliance initiatives introduce greater risk
  • Why siloed GRC information and processes are ineffective
  • Fundamental steps to establishing your GRC strategy

After an organization has accomplished these steps, it is then ready to think of GRC technology platforms that align to the needs of the organization instead of retrofitting a GRC strategic plan into a system that may not be the right one for the organization.

The electronic health record (EHR) was hailed as an innovation that would improve productivity and reduce the cost of care for both patients and providers. However, the possibility of a security breach of Protected Health Information (PHI) through EHR use—and the associated HIPAA/HITECH fines—often overshadows the potential benefits. An electronic information governance program, complete with privacy compliance monitoring, can help hospitals and physicians mitigate these risks while enabling the secure sharing of healthcare data.
