This episode, we had a great conversation with Dana Simberkoff, Chief Risk, Privacy, and Info Security officer at AvePoint Inc. Dana has many years of experience in risk reduction and security, and had some great insights to add to our series dealing with privacy and security.
Dana addressed the environment of rapidly changing regulations and how the government is responding to the change and rapid adoption of new technologies. She also talked about how that change has intensified due to COVID and how the landscape of privacy and security has changed since the COVID outbreak began. She emphasized how difficult it has been to complete a comprehensive risk analysis and implement governance policies for new software.
She also walked through the implications of privacy in regards to the increased reliance of cloud technology and new processes in our professional and personal lives that have come about to COVID. Jay also walked though some examples of how personal privacy can impact organizational security.
We also explored some of the considerations and steps organizations need to take to address these new concerns.
Thanks again to Dana for a great episode, and we hope that you enjoy watching as much as we did making this episode!
