Abstract: Should data be treated like dangerous chemicals? Individual data elements may be inert, but when combined, they can create a toxic mix. Data security doesn’t involve just securing data at rest or in transit. It also needs to be secured in use -- which means that at any point, the characteristics of the data can change, also known as a ‘data event’. Join Wendy Nather to understand the traits that determine how volatile or inert your data is, and the key formulas to remember for making sure your data doesn’t blow up in your face.
