Security never sleeps. Compliance requirements don’t deflate in a
recession. Now more than ever, IT teams must tighten privacy
policies, make smart purchasing decisions and learn how to do more
with less. Attend “How to Use SIEM to Cut Costs and Save Money” on
January 29th at 2:00 pm EST. Mark your calendar and register online
through our secure website today!
Instant messaging (IM) and other real-time communications are widely
used throughout most enterprises today, but their use remains largely
unmanaged. That puts organizations at risk for loss of intellectual
property and crucial data, rising costs around e-discovery, fines for
noncompliance, legal exposure from inappropriate use, and network
vulnerabilities resulting from unauthorized access. To mitigate
real-time communications risks and maintain accountability,
organizations must secure buy-in from top management, establish
strong policies for message archiving and appropriate use, and adopt
good tools to enforce those policies. This paper identifies key
concerns and identifies six steps to improve control over
organizational use of real-time communications.
As always, we want your feedback.
