Extending Your Data Security Controls to Office 365

Struggling with how to secure information on Office 365? 

The ease of access and availability of Office 365 has made it a compelling platform for many enterprises, in addition to its cost advantages. But it also brings many challenges.

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

  • The impact of Office 365 on your governance approach

  • How to extend and automate on-premises data protection policies to the Cloud

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.

Collaboration may well be the business buzzword of the century. Companies are increasingly adopting enterprise social computing to support efficient communications, employee knowledge sharing, and enhanced innovation.

However, on-going dialogue, the cornerstone of social computing, can leave the IT department, risk managers and compliance managers asking themselves a number of questions: Is our sensitive and regulated content secure? Are we complying with our governance policy? Do our end users understand our governance strategy? Do we have a process in place to monitor?

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.

A record number of global organizations are turning to SharePoint as the solution to their ECM challenges.

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.

Webinar: Using Compliance Automation to Reduce the Risk of an Online HIPAA Breach

Audience: HIPAA Directors, HIM Directors, EHR Directors, Chief Information Security Officers, Chief Privacy Officer, Chief Security Officer, Director of Information Security, VP of Information Security, Chief Compliance Officer, Risk Managers

Duration: 60 minutes

Prevent Online HIPAA and HITECH Breaches with Compliance Automation

Human error caused the largest health insurer in the United States to expose the records of over 470,000 applicants from 14 states on the Internet for 5 months in 2010. The records contained Protected Health Information (PHI) and Personally Identifiable Information (PII), and resulted in one of the largest HIPAA violations ever recorded. While the breach is still being investigated, the possible costs to the health insurer will most likely rise into the millions of dollars from lawsuits and fines from the US Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Civil Rights. Could this have been prevented?

Prevent Online Privacy Breaches and Confidentiality Leaks with Compliance Automation

Financial Services companies are entrusted with consumers’ personal data and their corporate customers’ confidential information. With tens of thousands of web pages and a broad range of Web properties (websites, extranets, intranets, blogs, wikis, forums), Financial Services institutions are faced with a substantial challenge in meeting online privacy and confidentiality compliance. The risks are significant: fines by regulatory agencies, lawsuits, lost clients. Automating your organization’s compliance with government regulations and organizational guidelines reduces the risk of an online privacy breach or confidentiality leak, and in some cases can even prevent the breach from happening.
