Data Discovery Dispelled: Part 2 – The shrinking potion: Data minimization and risk assessment in data discovery

October 19, 2023 | 9:00 am PST | 12:00 pm EST | 5:00 pm BST

Data protection is on the minds of data, security, and privacy teams every day. A component of this is minimizing the company’s attack surface, which encompasses all the ways your data is vulnerable to attack (from both inside and outside of the organization).

A key way to reduce your vulnerability to attack is to minimize your sensitive data footprint. To do so requires visibility provided by comprehensive data discovery coupled with automated data retention policies that are informed by both regulatory intelligence and data context.

In this session, we’ll cover:

  • What is data minimization?
  • How is it good for security, privacy, and IT pros?
  • What can automation do to improve security and reduce risk?

In our next installment, we’ll put all of the components of data discovery together to show how data discovery scans and classifies your data so you can control and protect it and unlock business value for your organization.
