Managing Shadow IT Threats: A Tactical Game Plan For Guarding Against Damaging Data Breaches
|Date / Time:
Recently, there have been many news stories about damaging data breaches, and the hefty legal fines imposed on those involved. Breaches can harm a company’s reputation and create huge financial burdens. Many breaches can be blamed on the rise of “shadow IT,” or unauthorized software installed by employees on company equipment. Sensitive or proprietary company data is vulnerable and you may not even know there’s a problem.
How do you protect against such data breaches within your organization? Training and implementing proper security protections are essential. Unfortunately, employees who have access to intellectual property (IP) that is vital to the company may have no idea that they have put it at risk. Often data breaches result from carelessness or ignorance on the part of employees.
Depending on how your organization uses cloud hosting applications, you may also need to examine not only how secure your IP is but also what problems could result from a breach.
Join us for an in-depth webinar when Daniel C. Nelson, a data privacy and security attorney and certified ethical hacker, and Nick Hogg, a technical training director for a leading global cybersecurity company, will deliver valuable insights on the dangers of shadow IT breaches, and what you can do to guard against the threats you face.

Daniel Nelson is among the few U.S. attorneys to hold the title of Certified Ethical Hacker (C|EH), which means he has been trained to break into computers, but for the right reasons. His combined interest in technology and the desire to help clients protect their privacy and sensitive data motivated him to take the unusual step of becoming what’s known as a “white hat” hacker. In addition to his ethical hacking credential, Mr. Nelson is a Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP/US). This credential means that he knows privacy laws and regulations and how to apply them.
Mr. Nelson’s special training and experience enhances his ability to help clients protect against and prepare for data breaches and other cybersecurity incidents. He assists clients in the creation, implementation and enforcement of privacy and security policies and data breach plans. This guidance includes counseling on appropriate cybersecurity insurance coverage and risk assessment engagements. He also assists businesses with understanding their duties to retain and protect sensitive information, including privacy and document retention requirements. In the event of a cyberattack, Mr. Nelson serves as a data breach and cyber incident coach. His knowledge of both the technical details of likely breaches and the attendant legal and business impacts enables him to provide clients the information needed from both a technical and legal standpoint.
Mr. Nelson also represents plaintiffs and defendants in commercial cases and has tried some 40 cases to verdict in both state and federal courts. In recognition of his achievements, The Best Lawyers in America named him “St. Louis Lawyer of the Year” for real estate litigation, as well as listed for commercial litigation.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
