Cyberattacks aren’t the only significant threats facing enterprises today. Companies often find themselves needing to conduct extensive and costly investigations into employee behavior. Investigators typically face two common challenges. First, finding answers often lies in analyzing mountains of data. Second, the answers must be found quickly. Investigative speed has the potential not only to limit the damage caused by the original transgression, but also to dramatically reduce legal costs and manage corporate risk.
Leaders from legal, IT, RIM, privacy and security met to address the current cyber threat landscape, eDiscovery challenges, unified governance and proportionality at the regional meeting in Minneapolis.
Speakers from Ameriprise Financial, Land O'Lakes, The Mosaic Company, Wells Fargo and the Honorable Tony Leung of the U.S. District of Minnesota. Keynote by Anthony Ferrante, Former Director for Cyber Incident Response at the White House, National Security Council and FBI Supervisory Special Agent and Robert Cattanach, Partner at Dorsey.

The Demand for Unified Governance – Experts Weigh In
02:00 PM (EST) | 11:00 AM (PST)
How do you create a culture and system where business information is treated as a first-class corporate asset and governance is used as an enabler rather than a deterrent? Join us as we discuss how to build a business case for information governance, expose and extract value from information assets, and reduce a variety of risks.
Consider how many organizations embark on a big data initiative. They purchase the right technology and begin pooling data from disparate systems into data lakes or data warehouses. But how do they know which data stores to use? How sure can they be of the lineage and integrity of their data? What can they do to ensure that their data lake doesn’t become a data swamp? The answer is simple: Start with a unified governance approach.
Cyberattacks aren’t the only significant threats facing enterprises today. Companies often find themselves needing to conduct extensive and costly investigations into employee behavior. For example, I was recently involved in an internal investigation that was estimated to cost a global Fortune 500 company more than $1 million just for the investigation itself. Of course, costs can run much higher when settlements and other legal fees are included. According to the Mintz Group, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act penalty amounts totaled $1.8 billion for the period from implementation of the FCPA in 1977 to May 2016. The financial impact to companies, as well as the damage to their reputations and business disruption, can be staggering, and possible litigation following an investigation can cause further financial and reputational harm.
Less than a year away from the implementation of the European Commission’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and stakes for companies are high. This article outlines important steps companies can take right now to make significant progress toward creating a data infrastructure that dramatically reduces the likelihood of non-compliance.
