Fasoo Helps Customers Control Unstructured Data at Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit 2018

Fasoo shows unstructured data security at Gartner SRM 2018

This year at the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit in National Harbor, MD there was a lot of focus on reducing business risk through improved cybersecurity that focuses on protecting data as users create and share it.  One area of concern to many organizations is how to find and protect sensitive data without impacting how employees and customers work.  Data protection regulations, like GDPR, are making things more complicated, but companies need to balance security with productivity.

At the Fasoo booth, a lot of people talked about issues with combining different technologies that still focus more on protecting the location of data rather than the data itself.  One executive from a manufacturing company talked about how her DLP system can tell them that sensitive documents were shared with external parties, but can’t really control their access or stop them from going out.  This is a common concern as companies use DLP, CASB and other technologies that can’t control access everywhere.

Ron Arden presenting on NYDFS compliance at RSS 2017Ron Arden, Executive Vice President & COO, Fasoo, Inc. spoke to security professionals and executives on how to meet the data-centric requirements of the NYDFS 23 NYCRR 500 cybersecurity regulations for financial services organizations at the 2017 Rochester Security Summit at the Rochester Hyatt in Rochester, NY.

Ron delivered a presentation entitled “Do You Have a Pathway to Data Security and Compliance?” as part of the risk and compliance track during the October 19 – 20, 2017 event.  With deadlines approaching for some of the more challenging components of the NYDFS cybersecurity regulations, timing was right as Ron reviewed results from the recent Ponemon Institute survey on NYDFS readiness and Fasoo’s approach to help meet the technical challenges of protecting unstructured data or data stored in files.  This is an area that most organizations are struggling with, since about 80 percent of their information is not in databases, but is in office documents.

Fasoo Shows Wrapsody Productivity and Security Platform at Gartner Symposium 2017Fasoo demonstrated the latest version of the Wrapsody productivity and security platform at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2017 from October 2 – 5, 2017 in Orlando, FL.  There was a lot of interest from CIOs, other executives and security professionals as many are struggling with how to secure sensitive information while also providing enhanced productivity for documents or unstructured data.

This year’s Symposium continued Gartner’s focus on helping organizations transform into digital businesses, which is far more than just automating processes.  It includes a holistic change of thinking, where data is the driver of growth and secure business processes are a given.  Since documents make up about 80% of the information that drives business processes, simplifying secure collaboration with documents while enhancing governance and compliance are key components of digital business.

Fasoo Moderates Panel on Cybersecurity and Your CompanyBill Blake, Senior Vice President and CCO (Chief Customer Officer) of Fasoo, moderated a panel discussion on Cybersecurity on September 13, 2017 at Harter Secrest & Emery LLP in Rochester, NY.  The event entitled Cyber Security & Your Company – What You Need to Know Now featured industry leaders and experts from The Bonadio Group, Fasoo, Lawley, and Harter Secrest & Emery LLP discuss how, when, and why to plan for a cyber attack.

The event was part of a continuing dialog with organizations on the needs for stricter cybersecurity controls in the wake of the ever growing threat of data breaches and threats to business operations.  Recent data breaches at Equifax, Verizon and others show that any organization is vulnerable to external attacks or insider threats.  Regulations and legislation, such as the New York NYDFS 23 NYCRR 500 cybersecurity regulations and GDPR in Europe, are causing businesses to improve their security posture to protect business and customer information.

Fasoo helps customers comply with GDPR and NYDFS 23 NYCRR 500This year at the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit in National Harbor, MD there was a lot of focus on managing and mitigating risk to a business and how to  improve cybersecurity through data-centric protection.  One area of concern to many organizations is how to comply with some of the newer cybersecurity and data protection regulations, like GDPR, as governments are trying to improve customer and business data security.

With all the recent malware, ransomware and data breaches, there was obviously a focus on how to prevent harm to one’s business.  As businesses move more into the realm of digital business, the concept of trust is becoming a larger issue.  If your customers do not trust you with their data, they will be less likely to do business with you.

Fasoo Sponsors NYDFS 23 NYCRR 500 Roadshow
Cybersecurity News

Fasoo Sponsors NYDFS 23 NYCRR 500 RoadshowOn March 1, 2017 new sweeping cybersecurity regulations from the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) took effect.  The NYDFS 23 NYCRR 500 regulations affect thousands of regulated financial institutions that do business in New York as well as thousands of Third Party Service Providers that support those financial institutions, world-wide.  The regulations add to the complexity that financial institutions already face in developing and implementing their comprehensive information security programs.  They also bring with them challenges and uncertainty as organizations implement new tools and practices designed to protect customer and company information.

In response to this sea-change, Fasoo is sponsoring a roadshow across three major markets in New York (Rochester, Buffalo and NY city) to help affected organizations comply with the new regulations.  The highlight of the roadshow will be a keynote by Dr. Larry Ponemon of the Ponemon Institute reviewing a study sponsored by Fasoo to gauge industry readiness and reaction to the new regulations.

New York Issues Final Version of Cybersecurity Regulations
Cybersecurity Data breach Insider threat

New York Issues Final Version of Cybersecurity RegulationsThe New York State Department of Financial Services (NYS DFS) just released the final version of its new cybersecurity regulations that affect organizations doing business under New York banking, insurance and financial services regulations.  The new regulation is designated 23 N.Y.C.R.R. Part 500, and goes into affect on March 1, 2017.

Paul Greene, an attorney at Harter Secrest & Emery, in a recent blog post mentioned that the main changes in the regulation from earlier drafts is the move to a more risk-adjusted approach to cybersecurity, rather than a purely prescriptive approach.  Rather than applying a one-size-fits-all approach, the NYS DFS is allowing Covered Entities to define the risk associated with their nonpublic information before deciding on the best way to protect it.  Questions remain, however, concerning the scope and reach of these regulations.
