Theme: Securing Sensitive Data: Enabling Data Collaboration Safely and Compliantly

Hosted by: Zivver


With so many electronic communications exchanged daily within and between public bodies, it’s not a question of whether a mistake will occur, but how to minimise risk and mitigate impact.

We’re human, we all make mistakes, and with the growth in online collaboration and data sharing, technology choice and use significantly affects the risk. Maybe you included the wrong attachment or sent it to someone else by accident? It’s understandable when people are often handling over 100 emails per day and working remotely. But it’s still a breach, and public services hold and need to share some of the most sensitive data, often about vulnerable people.

Many organisations understandably concentrate their security efforts on preventing external threats. But over 90% of reported breaches are from human error, sometimes compounded by confusing or complicated technologies. So how does the CIO approach this in a modern ‘business providing public services’ in a post-COVID world? What is the impact on security and IT strategy?

Join our session where Rick Goud, CIO of Zivver will describe the common types of data breaches that we see, and the most effective responses taken by leading organisations designed to mitigate human error in particular.

This practical session will offer the best practices to properly safeguard your digital communications in what is, today, undoubtedly a more complex environment for the CIO to oversee.
