Evanta: What We’ve Heard, and What We’re Looking Forward To

Throughout 2019, PKWARE has sponsored and moderated boardroom discussions at Evanta CISO Executive Summits in North America and Europe. These engaging, productive conversations have focused on key data security issues including compliance, data governance, data ownership, data retention, risk management, discovery classification, and information lifecycle management.

Building on the success of these sessions, we’re looking forward to sponsoring Evanta’s Global CISO Executive Summit at the Four Seasons Westlake Village in California from Monday, September 9 until Wednesday, September 11. To kick off the summit, PKWARE will host a Golf Experience on Monday, September 9 at Rustic Canyon Golf Club.

On Tuesday, PKWARE CEO Miller Newton will moderate a boardroom session on “Managing the Convergence of Global Data Regulations” at 10:45 a.m. The session will cover a variety of topics related to cybersecurity legislation and data security:

  • The current landscape of data privacy regulation around the world
  • Best practices for managing risk associated with data protection frameworks
  • Standards and metrics for measuring data protection risk
  • Data classification strategies to aid compliance, regardless of regulation

With European authorities handing down hundred-million-dollar fines and more US states putting data protection laws on the books, compliance is a bigger concern than ever before. If your organization is participating in the Global CISO Executive Summit, we hope you'll join us for this important conversation. We’ll also follow up afterward to share the insights we gain into strategies CISOs are adopting to meet this rapidly-evolving challenge.
