What is mobile data GRC? Join our mobile data security discussion

What is mobile data, which devices produce it, and how can you protect it? Join SearchCompliance Feb. 20 to discuss mobile governance and compliance.

Those in charge of mobile governance and protection in their organization have a complicated, love-hate relationship with mobile data and devices. From a business perspective, mobile devices increase productivity by allowing company employees to work wherever and whenever. But those same benefits create a host of mobile data problems for IT compliance and security professionals.

Ensure compliance with a GRC plan

As employees begin to request corporate data access on not just smartphones, but also on tablets and new wearable tech devices, IT needs to step up its data protection game, assess vulnerabilities and implement necessary data retention tools.

TechTarget Associate Site Editor Emily McLaughlin will lead the chat from the SearchCompliance Twitter handle, @ITCompliance. TechTarget writers and editors will contribute to the conversation, joined by compliance leaders, governance experts and SearchCompliance Twitter followers.
