A Holistic Approach to Developing a Combined Security and Compliance Program

Proofpoint's Michael McGrath and Brian Reed on How to Plan, Prioritize and Build the Program

Cybersecurity compliance is not the same as security. Recognizing this fact can lead many organizations to prioritize one over the other, thereby increasing critical risks. But by taking a planned approach to integrating the two, you can achieve a holistic solution that delivers both.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Proofpoint's Michael McGrath, EMEA compliance and risk management, and Brian Reed, senior director, cybersecurity strategy, discuss:

  • The key milestones necessary to plan, prioritize and build a combined program with the organizational agility required to balance compliance and security concerns;
  • How to handle introducing new technologies;
  • How to deal with new regulatory developments.

McGrath works with senior leaders and organizations who are implementing transformational change and experiencing difficulties to help them identify the root causes of the challenges and then unlock them.

Reed is a research director responsible for data loss prevention, data security, cloud security, employee monitoring, insider threat, endpoint and mobile security.
