Meerah Rajavel to Share How Innovative Risk-Adaptive Protection Can Remove Business Friction and Restore Your Board’s Trust in Cybersecurity 

Austin, Texas – June 4, 2018 – Global cybersecurity leader Forcepoint today announced CIO Meerah Rajavel will be speaking on Risk-Adaptive Protection at Gartner’s Security & Risk Management Summit on June 4, 2018.  

Rajavel's session will walk-through the paradigm shift in thinking needed to evolve today’s approach to solving security challenges as the static legacy approach to data protection continues to prove ineffective for today's sophisticated attacks. In presenting a strategic path forward, Rajavel will discuss how an adaptive security approach ensures trust between enterprises and its employees and addresses the mandate from boards of directors for stronger cyber efficacy. 

Rajavel will also highlight the benefits of Risk-Adaptive Protection which focuses on how, when and why people interact with critical data, correlating behavior with the context of user activities to view risk holistically. And, instead of locking down productivity, Risk-Adaptive Protection gives users more freedom by enforcing policies that are unique to the user and proportionally applied only when needed.
