Information security breaches: How to minimize business ramifications

In light of recent high-profile information security breaches, companies are reexamining their risk and compliance programs. Discuss how in #GRCchat.

In light of recent high-profile and ultimately sobering information security breaches at such retail giants as Target, Michaels Stores and Neiman Marcus, enterprises are taking a whole new look at their governance, risk and compliance (GRC) programs. The ultimate aim? Preparing for the worst -- and if the worst happens anyway (think: black swan event), then responding in full force to minimize any costly ramifications to the business.

Join SearchCompliance Thursday, May 15, at 12 p.m. EDT to discuss information security breaches and how your enterprise can evade the full brunt should a breach occur. Robert Naylor, former CIO at the U.S. Federal Communications Commission, where he focused on cybersecurity and operational efficiencies, will be our guest expert for the chat. TechTarget Associate Site Editor Emily McLaughlin will lead the event from SearchCompliance's Twitter handle, @ITCompliance, joined by SearchCompliance editors and experts for a discussion of best practices for minimizing information security breaches, how businesses can recover from a breach and the role of employees in keeping enterprises safe.
