Meeting Time: 9:00am – 11:00am
Topic: The Future of Data Assurance
Many industry leaders state that it is time to move away from the traditional “castle and moat” mentality and transition towards self-protecting, self-governing data. In this discussion, we will explore the why there is such a need, how that new approach might look, and what the benefits would be to both corporations and consumers.
