Manage and Investigate Risk

Tackle insider risk head on with this proactive and practical workshop.

Today’s employees have a greater ability to create, manage and share data than ever before. That dramatically increases the risk of sensitive business information falling into the wrong hands.
By implementing an integrated approach to identify, triage and act on risky user activity, it’s possible to shore up potential data leaks before they happen. Don’t let insider threats put your invaluable intellectual property, compliance or reputation at risk.

What our clients are saying about the workshops

“Cloud Essentials has been essential to BulkSMS in ensuring we advance our data protection maturity in the local and global markets. We engaged with both the Data Privacy Assessment and Advisory Workshop and the Data Classification Taxonomy Workshop, which were run professionally by Cloud Essentials. In the workshops the Cloud Essentials data privacy team did a deep dive into the complexities of our operations and BulkSMS has benefited from their expert legal, compliance and technical advice in future-proofing our data protection programme.”

Their depth of knowledge in this space is impressive and as a result of our interaction with them, our own depth of knowledge has increased markedly. I would recommend them with confidence."
