Washington Technology: An Intelligent Approach to Data Protection


Post Sunburst, it is clearer than ever that agencies and contractors must revisit the way they manage and protect their data, to minimize the risk of future nation-state attacks. It is critical that appropriate cybersecurity practices and processes are in place, to ensure basic cyber hygiene as well as protect controlled unclassified information (CUI) that resides on the Government industry partners’ networks.

Programs like DFARS, CMMC, and NIST SP 800-171 are designed to shift the focus cybersecurity resources more on detecting and preventing potential breaches, rather than cleaning up after a breach has already occurred. To meet these requirements and stay ahead of advisories, user experience and security must converge in the most ideal way to move left of breach. This evolution requires a more sophisticated approach to data protection than many organizations have in place today. So, how do we get there?

In this webcast, Petko Stoyanov, Forcepoint Chief Technology Officer, discusses how organizations must innovate to meet these requirements and stay ahead of advisories in a landscape where they are inundated by new, rapidly-evolving challenges. Learn about how Zero Trust aligns and the importance of using behavior-centric analytics with data protection tools to prioritize high-risk activity and automate policies to protect data in near real-time to move your security left of breach and ensure compliance.
