ATLANTA, Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- New strategies to help consumer product goods companies protect critical data exchanged both inside and outside the corporate firewall will be the topic of a free one-hour webinar at 1 pm ET on Tuesday, October 25. The webinar, "How to Avoid Data Breach Disasters in CPG Supply Chains," will feature representatives of Aberdeen Group, SEEBURGER and SupplyChainBrain.
The session will address the risks of utilizing email, FTP or online solutions like YouSendIt and Dropbox to exchange sensitive information such as point-of-sale data, new product designs, financial data and HR files, particularly when the files exceed email size limitations or involve unstructured information exchanged between business users. Lack of encryption, guaranteed file delivery and other controls can lead to data loss, delivery delays, security breaches and compliance violations.
Presenters will explain how an alternative solution – secure Managed File Transfer (MFT) – reduces those risks as well as providing a complete audit trail of file transfer activity to support governance and compliance efforts.
Other topics covered will include:
- The three common file transfer types and how to efficiently protect all of them
- Practical approaches for empowering business users
- When secure MFT should be part of B2B strategies and why
- Successful MFT deployments at several companies
- The five most important questions to ask an MFT solutions vendor
Webinar presenters will be Derek Brink, Vice President and Research Fellow, Aberdeen Group, and Brent Tisdale, CPG Business Director for SEEBURGER. The session will be moderated by Jean Murphy, Editor Emeritus, SupplyChainBrain.
