Bagels and coffee are available starting at 7:30, and the presentation runs from 8:00-9:00. Typical audience size is 40+. Speakers and attendees range from highly niche technical on-site engineers, consultants, company owners, and business development.

The Challenge: When it comes to protecting spreadsheets, documents, images and other data on file servers, SharePoint sites, and in Exchange mailboxes and public folders, most organizations readily admit that their current processes and risk profiles are less than ideal. Unfortunately, IT personnel ¿ rather than the people that own the data ¿ are the ones making many of the decisions about permissions, acceptable use, and access review. Since IT personnel do not have the business context behind the growing volumes of unstructured and semi-structured data, they¿re only able to make a best-effort guess as to how to manage and protect each data set. Until organizations start to shift the decision making responsibility to business data owners, IT, despite its best efforts, will continue to struggle to keep file permissions current and correct as data grows and user roles change.
 
The Solution: In its work with thousands of organizations, Varonis has developed a proven, efficient methodology for organizations to monitor, protect, and manage their data. The steps are arranged to address logical dependencies that range from those that any seasoned project manager would see to those that are only learned through years of experience. It should be noted that though Varonis solutions support and automate every step of this methodology, the methodology stands on its own, and could conceivably be accomplished with combinations of other technologies.
 
Bio: Bob Krzysik is a 28-year veteran of information technology and data security and has served in applications development, network and support management, system architecture and project management roles in telecom services and data security software organizations. Bob currently serves as a Federal SE Manager for Varonis Systems and works passionately to help organizations of all sizes get the most value from their data with the least amount of risk.
