Securing Office 365 and the Modern Add-in

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

Over the past several months, I have spoken with many prospects and partners about Office 365. What I have discovered is that there are as many ideas about what Microsoft Office 365 is as there are people I’ve spoken to. I’ve heard “Office 365” defined as:

  • The desktop product(s) I use today – I pay for it via yearly subscription
  • OneDrive
  • The combination of SharePoint Online and OneDrive
  • Microsoft Office Online apps (Outlook Web Access (OWA), Outlook Online, Office Online)

You’ll see in there a mix of desktop and cloud-deployed products, and the reality is that in the short term you’ll most likely find yourself in a hybrid mode, rather than firmly planted in one or the other. The purpose of this discussion is the modern add-in, though, which only applies to Microsoft Office Online apps.

For EU GDPR Compliance, Accountability Starts with End Users

Thursday, May 12th, 2016

I was speaking at an event in Stockholm recently, and was preceded by an eminent lawyer in the field of data protection. He was telling the audience how, after years of discussion, the European Union’s new data protection framework, the EU General Data Protection Regulation, has finally been agreed upon. He gave lots of detail on the specific obligations organisations will now have to comply with to ensure the protection of personal data, but in essence his message boiled down to three things:

• You are accountable and need to be able to demonstrate compliance coherently across your processes, employees and systems
• If you get it wrong, it’s really going to hurt
• You need to start thinking about how to become compliant before it’s too late (more…)

Everything is Awesome at RSA 2016

If you have kids (or are a kid at heart) and have watched The LEGO® Movie (I believe it has been played in my house approximately 4000 times), then you know what ‘Everything is Awesome’ refers to…and you now have the song in your head – you’re welcome!

And, we’re back – back in San Francisco in the midst of fun and excitement at RSA 2016!

TITUS Boxing Day

Thursday, December 17th, 2015

It’s TITUS Boxing Day today. While traditionally Boxing Day follows Christmas on December 26th, we celebrate a week or so before. We also differ from tradition as the Christmas boxes we prepare are not for our employees, but are boxed by our employees for those in our community who could use some extra help.

The New Asset on Your Balance Sheet

Wednesday, October 28th, 2015

With so many metrics focused on the “cost of a data breach” as well as how much money is spent on data security, is it crazy to think that boards of directors will begin asking for financial statements around data value in the next couple of years?

The concept of placing value on your data is not new – analysts have been talking about infonomics and information valuation for a while now. In fact, it just appeared on a recent Gartner hype cycle which suggested infonomics will take 5 to 10 years to plateau. However, with the pressure on organizations to build a strong culture around data security, I would argue we are going to see the need for data value statements within the next 2-3 years.

Monday, October 26th, 2015

TITUS is once again a sponsor of the Intel Security (formerly McAfee) FOCUS Security Conference, taking place in Las Vegas this week.  It might be hard to top our presence last year, especially after being named SIA Partner of the Year for 2014, but we’re sure going to try!

TITUS will be demonstrating how our data classification solutions integrate with McAfee’s Data Exchange Layer (DXL) and Threat Intelligence Exchange (TIE) solution for real-time analysis, alerts, and instant remediation when user activity is deemed suspicious or dangerous. (more…)
