If your shared files could talk, how surprised would you be to learn where they have been, how they have been accessed and by whom? Chances are, your security policy and defenses to protect sensitive, confidential and regulated data held in files are insufficient. With the expanded use of today's enterprise content management, cloud storage and web collaboration platforms comes greater data leakage risks. How can organizations expand their data privacy controls to safeguard files against hacker, malware, shadow IT, cloud application, and personal mobile device exposures?

Join Barbara Filkins, SANS Senior Analyst, and Scott Gordon, Chief Operating Officer at FinalCode, as they examine options, considerations and technology to secure shared files within and outside the porous corporate network.

Attendees will explore:

  • Top 10 steps to rapidly scope file sharing security projects
  • Pragmatic and novel preventative, detective and corrective measures
  • Avoiding common technical control pitfalls: policy, deployment, legality, user acceptance
  • FinalCode architecture, capabilities and application
