AvePoint Presents Implications of the New European General Protection Regulation at RSA Conference 2016

AvePoint will share its robust solutions for fostering transparency, data protection, and trust with attendees throughout the event

San Francisco — February 25, 2016AvePoint Chief Compliance and Risk Officer, Dana Simberkoff, will join Bojana Bellamy, President of the Center for Information Policy Leadership, JoAnn Stonier, Executive Vice President and Chief Information Governance & Privacy Officer at MasterCard, and Michelle Dennedy, Chief Privacy Officer at Cisco, to lead the session “Privacy, Security, IT and the New European General Protection Regulation” at 3:30-4:20 p.m. PT on Tuesday, March 1, 2016.

The new EU Data Protection Regulation creates many obligations – both from new and older concepts – where more connection between the CPO, CISO, IT, and CIO is necessary. The new IT obligations may cause the most impact for companies around the world, because they may require a fundamental shift in operational processes for IT and business process optimization, as well as program management. The session will explore methods to ensure IT, security, and privacy work better together; to prepare your organization for the new European General Protection Regulation; and to securely manage and share information.

AvePoint, the Microsoft Cloud expert, is an exhibitor at RSA Conference 2016, taking place February 29 – March 4 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA. Throughout the conference, AvePoint will showcase its latest compliance, data protection, privacy, and security solutions to help organizations implement a unified risk management strategy across their cloud, hybrid, on-premises, and file share environments.

Throughout RSA Conference 2015, attendees can visit the AvePoint booth (#5011) and meet subject matter experts to discuss topics around compliance, risk management, data security, and privacy as well as receive live demonstrations of AvePoint’s latest solutions.

Compliance and Data Protection: AvePoint Compliance Guardian helps you mitigate risk from the moment data is created through its entire lifecycle, proactively monitoring and neutralizing violations of privacy, security, and compliance. AvePoint Compliance Guardian provides individualized reports and dashboards surfacing only relevant issues, automatically delegating violations to the right people so they can be addressed quickly.

Cloud: Compliance Guardian Online, part of AvePoint Online Services – used by three million Office 365 users worldwide – allows organizations to minimize risk of privacy violations and information security breaches as well as mitigate accessibility and site quality issues for websites, web applications, and SharePoint Online sites without adding additional infrastructure.

File Analysis: AvePoint File Analysis Services, an integrated component of AvePoint Compliance Guardian, identifies which files reside where and who has access to them – reducing the risk of privacy or sensitive information breaches by increasing visibility into an organization’s unstructured data. By discovering, mapping, and classifying the unstructured data – especially within file shares – organizations can make more informed decisions regarding which data to keep and remove.

Governance: DocAve Governance Automation allows organization to provide end users with a business-centric, role-based service catalog for provisioning, restructuring, moving, or migrating content across SharePoint versions, sites, and deployments. DocAve Governance Automation easily manages lifecycle and permissions management requests, and transcends the capabilities of rigid provisioning and security management solutions.

Privacy: The AvePoint Privacy Impact Assessment (APIA) solution – a free tool exclusively distributed by International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) – mitigates the risk inherent with manual privacy impact assessments, helping organizations understand and automate the process of evaluating, assessing, and reporting on the privacy implications of their enterprise IT systems.

Risk: AvePoint Risk Intelligence System (ARIS) provides a methodology for organizations to address the complete lifecycle of risk across the enterprise. Leveraging the templates and question banks created for APIA, this framework extends risk identification to provide meaningful action to assessments, including quantifying, lowering, and monitoring instances.
