Penn State Presents on Data Privacy and Compliance at Information Security Summit 2012


Modulo, a leading provider of IT governance, risk and compliance (GRC) solutions, announced today that it is sponsoring and exhibiting at the Information Security Summit 2012, October 25-26 in Westlake, OH. Modulo customer Pennsylvania State University will also present on the topic of “Data, Data Everywhere: Privacy Perspectives; An Inventory Conundrum and a Compliance Nightmare.” The presentation will be led by Sarah Morrow Chief Privacy Officer, MBA-ISM, CIPP, GISP, and Jennifer A. Stewart, CIPP/IT, Privacy Coordinator.

Morrow and Stewart will explore the pitfalls and available tools to consider when dealing with data and compliance issues including:

  • Where is your data and how do you find it?
  • How does one begin to comply with the myriad of regulations, from Red Flags, GLBA, PCI-DSS, FACTA, HIPAA to state breach notification laws?
  • How do you really account for your data, size it up and place it behind the necessary protections without having tools to accomplish the feat?
  • How does one mitigate risk of unauthorized access to data if it is not sorted and properly stored?
  • What are the pitfalls if your environment is extra-large, decentralized and distributed?

During the conference, in Booth 21, Modulo will demonstrate its Risk Manager solution used by hundreds of large organizations and governments worldwide to achieve: IT Governance Risk & Compliance; IT Vulnerability Risk Management; Vendor Risk Management; Operational Risk Management & Enterprise Risk Management; Audit & Internal Control Management; and Continuous Monitoring.
