External hackers and insider threats. Customer expectations and government mandates.
Data protection is a complex challenge, and it demands attention at every level of an organization. PKWARE's in-house experts are here to help you stay up to date on best practices, emerging trends, and new resources for enterprise data security.
Automotive suppliers must meet TISAX data security standards in order to do business with any major German automobile company. PKWARE helps companies simplify TISAX compliance by providing a wide range of capabilities to address multiple requirements. In our TISAX blog series, we're examining the requirements auto industry suppliers and service providers must meet, and how PKWARE is helping organizations meet those requirements.
Today's topic: data classification, and why automation makes all the difference.
As a new member of the PCI Security Standards Council, PKWARE has taken the opportunity to sponsor and participate in the Council’s Community Meetings in North America and Europe this fall. Most recently, we joined more than 600 participants at the 2019 Europe Community Meeting in Dublin. As with previous events, the European meeting delivered plenty of fresh cybersecurity and payment security insights from industry experts.
If you’re an automotive supplier or service provider, TISAX compliance has become a prerequisite for doing business with any major German automobile company. However, like many other data security mandates, TISAX is only a few years old, and many organizations are still searching for the right approach to it.
In our TISAX blog series, we’ll explore the specific requirements that auto industry suppliers and service providers must meet, and how PKWARE is helping organizations meet those requirements. But first, we’ll take on a more general question:
What is TISAX and why does it matter?
Having recently joined the PCI Security Standards Council, PKWARE was proud to participate as a Technology Sponsor at the Council’s 2019 North America Community Meeting in Vancouver. The event was well attended, with more than 1,000 individuals from all over the North America coming together to discuss the future of payment card data and security.
Data loss prevention (DLP) and encryption are two of the most important data security technologies in use today, but they don't always play well together. Encryption often prevents DLP from inspecting data as it leaves the organization, while DLP often lacks the ability to encrypt unprotected data according to organizational policy. That's why global banks, retailers, and other organizations rely on PKWARE DLP Enhancement.
Throughout 2019, PKWARE has sponsored and moderated boardroom discussions at Evanta CISO Executive Summits in North America and Europe. These engaging, productive conversations have focused on key data security issues including compliance, data governance, data ownership, data retention, risk management, discovery classification, and information lifecycle management.

Data breaches are simply a fact of life. Businesses in every industry, in every country, are attacked by data thieves and malicious insiders on a daily basis. As pervasive as they are today, cyber threats will only grow more severe as time goes on—each newly-developed way to communicate or do business online creates new forms of sensitive data that hackers, industrial spies, and state-sponsored operatives are ready to exploit.

In the realm of information security, the traditional trade-offs security professionals seek to balance, such as effectiveness of security, total cost of ownership, and convenience for users have been the relentless targets for continuous improvement by innovative solution providers. Anyone who has been working in this field for a length of time would have to admit that today’s security solutions are more capable, cost-effective, and much easier to use than the security solutions of 20, 10, or even five years ago.
But there were over 3,200 publicly disclosed data breaches from 2017-2018, which averages to between four and five data breaches daily. Although the median number of records disclosed to unauthorized parties was relatively small (about 1,300 records per breach), there were 114 data breaches of 1M records or greater during this two-year period – or, about one mega-breach weekly.
How can these two observations be reconciled?
