Legal, compliance, and security pressures are changing in response to the explosion of data and data types.

All data follows a lifecycle. Understanding the data lifecycle and looking at it through the lens of a data lifecycle model helps you identify opportunities to improve data usage, governance, and compliance. So, what's the best way for you to improve the use and management of data from the perspective of security, cost, governance, and regulatory compliance?

In this webcast, our experts will provide a level set on the current state of the data lifecycle. You will learn about an open source data research program called Seahorse: what the output of the program is, what has been delivered so far and how you can use it. Gain valuable insights as our experts cover:

•  The Seahorse Research Programme: what it is, what has been delivered, and what is to be delivered
•  How to use this to control the costs associated with exponential data growth and storage
•  How to mitigate financial harm and reputation risk by protecting the data of your employees and clients
•  How to retain, discover, and supervise your data while adhering to complex and changing international regulations
