Absolute Software Presents International IT Security Series
Providing IT Leaders with an Opportunity to Discuss How to Address the Challenges of Data Security
Vancouver, Canada: April 16, 2014 – Absolute® Software Corporation (TSX: ABT), the industry standard for persistent endpoint security and management solutions for computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones presents an International IT Security Series, starting in Seattle, providing local IT leaders with an opportunity to discuss and address current IT security issues.
This is an invitation-only series with events in key cities in Europe, Latin America, and co-hosted with Landmark Ventures in the United States. The interactive peer discussions focus on the legal and regulatory implications of a potential data breach, as well as the technology and approaches that can be employed to mitigate a security incident before it happens.
“Data security is of immense importance to organizations around the world as the workforce continues to become more mobile, accessing confidential data on multiple devices,” said Lance Mueller, Director of Forensics at Executive Forensics. “I appreciate the opportunity to be a part of the IT Security Series. It provides IT leaders with the opportunity to discuss how to address data security concerns and share recommendations on how to avoid a data breach.”
“It is clear from the results of the recent Mobile Enterprise Risk Survey we commissioned that there is a significant gap in the perception between employees and the organization regarding the security of enterprise data and the impact to the business if a data breach occurs. When asked about appropriate penalties if company data was leaked or lost, one-quarter of American enterprise workers surveyed said there should be no punishment since data security is not their responsibility,” said Stephen Treglia, Legal Counsel at Absolute Software. “With these findings in mind, we want to engage in dialogue with key IT leaders around the world. Our discussion will focus on the management of highly mobile workers that take little responsibility for the security of corporate data on their devices, as well as the measures that must be taken by IT to comply with strict data security regulations.”
