Forcepoint a Platinum Sponsor at Forrester’s US Privacy & Security Forum 2017

Sarah Vela

We’re thrilled to be attending Forrester’s US Privacy & Security Forum later this week in Washington, D.C. as a Platinum Sponsor.

As the site explains, this event is intended to explore the “rapid escalation of security, privacy, and risk from the operational back office to a strategic, enterprise-level imperative -- and key driver of digital business and customer trust.”

In the Booth

If you’re coming to the event, we look forward to seeing you at the booth where we’ll be meeting and greeting customers, partners, and analysts, and giving attendees a first-hand look at three major product categories. Most people know of our Insider Threat and Data Loss Prevention offerings, which will be demoed in the booth, as well as our Cloud Security and CASB offerings. New as of this month is Forcepoint UEBA – based on our recent acquisition of RedOwl. We’re excited to have members from that team on hand at the Mayflower to show off this powerful technology for attendees.

Are your employees Breaking Bad?

On Thursday our own dynamic duo of Kristin Leary (chief human resources officer) and Dr. Richard Ford (chief scientist) will be co-presenting on the topic of security and HR. This is guaranteed to be both an entertaining and informative discussion on a vital, but often undiscussed, topic. Here’s an abstract of the talk:

Insider threat detection. Employee monitoring. Background checks. These techniques pose social, ethical, legislative and security challenges – but are also effective ways for organizations to guard its most important data assets. In this session, Dr. Richard Ford and Kristin Leary from Forcepoint will explain the most effective way to proactively mitigate insider threats – fusing technology with a people-centric approach based on understanding employee intent. Forward-looking security programs balance employee privacy with data, IP and user protection, and Forcepoint will offer perspectives and recommendations from both human resources and technology executives, who share these responsibilities.

We hope to see you there!
