Course description

Here are two questions everyone will eventually need to ask themselves: What do I have, and where is it? This seven-video course gives you the tools to answer those questions by taking you through the minutiae of asset security. Beginning with managing sensitive data and basic principles such as need-to-know and definitions of important terms (quality control and assurance, data owner, data custodian and more), we conduct a deeper dive into six key topic areas: data remanence, data at rest, data in transit, data ownership, data security controls and classification.
