Blancco follows Russian office opening with continued emphasis on erasure as means to secure confidential data at stand D1-3 and in keynote speech
Blancco, the global leader in data erasure and computer reuse solutions, is exhibiting at InfoSecurity Russia 2012, Russia's No. 1 IT and security event. Blancco will provide a keynote speech and serve as an exhibitor (stand D1-3), promoting the importance of data erasure for retired hardware, September 26-28, 2012, at the Crocus Expo, Hall 2, Moscow. Blancco's emphasis at this event echoes growing concerns about data security within Russia.
"Many Russian corporations and government organizations are vulnerable to costly data breaches because they have no data erasure policy within their overall IT security strategy," said Kim Väisänen, CEO and Co-Founder of Blancco. "Our new Moscow branch operations opened largely because of requests from our international clients operating in Russia. Blancco recognizes the need to drive education about data erasure as an IT best practice and to build awareness of its role in regulatory requirements within this region."
After announcing Russian expansion plans this June, Blancco eagerly showcases its secure erasure solutions at stand D1-3. These customizable, automated solutions support centrally managed erasure processes, saving organizations time and money while offering detailed erasure reports for regulatory purposes. Blancco software also holds the internationally recognized Common Criteria certification, as verified by third-party testing.
A presentation from Blancco's Chief Operating Officer Janne Vara addresses the essential role of data erasure in corporate data security strategy on 26 September from 12:50-13:10 in the KeyNote Theatre. Attendees are also invited to visit stand D1-3 to learn about Blancco's data erasure solutions and to join the company's 15-year anniversary celebration. In addition, Blancco will launch a new white paper on effective management of data erasure as part of corporate data security strategy at InfoSecurity Russia.
