Today's Big Data landscape makes it cheap and easy to collect and store data across sprawling data lakes, warehouses, and cloud environments—and enterprises are hoarding data like never before. But what's the hidden cost? As Big Data continues to proliferate, so does the threat surface of dark data, now comprising at least half of any organization's data estate.

For organizations trying to balance the need to be data-driven against the compliance risks associated with mishandling data, it is crucial to have visibility into all areas where data resides—including the dark side of sensitive data.

Is sensitive data-at-rest leaving you in the dark and at risk? Not having visibility into sensitive dark data is an Achilles heel to Zero-Trust frameworks, potentially exposing your organization to damaging breaches, ransomware attacks, and compliance fines.

Join our panel of industry experts who will shed light on the growing dark data threats they see in the wild. Bring your questions and scenarios to this interactive panel to get the answers you need!

Key takeaways will include:

• 3 "must haves" to effectively manage dark data risk

• Key technologies to discover, classify, and protect sensitive data-at-rest

• Essential guardrails to leverage Big Data as a strategic weapon while reducing the threat surface of sensitive dark data

Attendees are eligible to receive 1 CPE credit.
