People are the weak link in data security, what technology can do to help mitigate?
Kelly McCann, Egress Software Technologies Ltd

If people represent the weak link in data security, then we need to make better use of technology to understand user behaviour to mitigate this risk. By discerning the flow of information into and out of an organisation, as well as the type of data and its sensitivity, steps can be taken to identify the parts of a business most vulnerable to a breach. Moreover, once these data flow trends have been identified, technology can be used to create real-time 'memory' within exchange environments in order to retain and recall previous information sharing patterns and end-user relationships. Using technology to analyse these patterns, greater information security and assurance can be applied to any exchange of data, reducing the likelihood of human error resulting in a data breach.

14:45 – 15:15
