This year’s RSA Conference in San Francisco gave security professionals, executives and other attendees a lot to choose from as they tried to help their organizations prevent cyberattacks and mitigate the risk of insider threats. Apple’s current flap with the FBI on encryption was a big point of discussion throughout the event, including during keynotes. Amit Yoran, the President of RSA, came out strongly against government backdoors and weakening encryption.
Fasoo’s theme this year was Design Your Data Security Blueprint and visitors to the Fasoo booth got to see how the Fasoo Data Security Framework and Sparrow could help them achieve their goal of protecting their sensitive data from getting into the wrong hands.
A lot of conversations centered on the understanding that it’s not a matter of if I get hacked, but when. I spoke to one gentleman who was talking about the concept of security crumple zones where you assume that some layers of your security will get breached. The concept is similar to car safety, where the ultimate goal is protect what is most valuable. Fasoo was showing attendees a multi-layered approach to data security that relies on a data-centric security model with people-centric policies. This allows an organization to protect critical data immediately and adjust access control policy as roles and people change.
