The 2016 edition of SecTor, Canada’s largest information security expo, is quickly approaching. As the conference celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, the stage is set for some of the world’s leading information security experts and professionals to connect in the heart of downtown Toronto. The conference, as always, features a full schedule of activities, seminars, and workshops—including a session hosted by UZADO’s own Dave Millier.
Where and When?
UZADO CEO Dave Millier will be leading a half-hour session on Tuesday, October 18, 2016. Catch Dave at SecTor from 11:30 am-12:00 pm in Tech3 (801B) as he discusses the most effective approach to your compliance management activities. If you’ve been curious about the UZADO platform and what it can do for your company, this talk is your chance to learn more about UZADO and how it can help you manage your compliance activities in the most effective manner possible.
An Effective Approach to Automating Compliance Activities
Dave’s session, “An Effective Approach to Automating Compliance Activities,” will focus on how professionals involved in security and compliance can more effectively manage their compliance activities, with an eye to freeing up time.
Why focus on compliance activities? Compliance is an important issue in a world where it seems that, in the wake of every security breach, governments and agencies move to impose more standards and legislation to govern information. The effort is well-intentioned: It seems that every day brings news of another security breach, and companies, regulators, and other players all realize the importance of keeping the sensitive information of business partners and clients safe.
What often seems to go unnoticed by regulators is the sheer amount of work that compliance entails. Most companies have realized that the members of their organizations involved in compliance management and security are already overwhelmed with their day-to-day tasks. Imposing yet another standard or another set of regulations is not an effective, long-term solution—many firms simply allow compliance to slide because staff is too busy just keeping up with the everyday demands of their firm. In this situation, what can an organization do?
In this talk, Dave will present an approach that allows you to quickly review a proposed or existing standard or framework. He’ll also provide a methodology for systematizing a consistent, reliable, repeatable approach to managing compliance—one that also allows you to start automating activities where feasible. This methodology has the goal of freeing up time for you and the members of your organization who are responsible for contributing to or managing compliance activities.
The session will explore some of the key features that make the UZADO approach and platform the most effective way to deal with your compliance management. Dave will introduce the various aspects of what the platform can do for your company in terms of consultation, verification, and ongoing operations and compliance validation. The talk will introduce some of the platform’s key strengths, including automation, the provision of additional services for compliance teams that are overwhelmed, and workflow tools to help your team manage and prioritize their workloads.
