That may sound cynical, except I have seen it several times in the last two months and many times before that.

Connecting GRC With DRM
Kiteworks
May 15, 2023
In this Kitecast episode, Mark discusses the significance of GRC (Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance) in today’s technology landscape, which is being propelled by accelerated evolution in cyber threats, third-party risks, and data security issues in the cloud. One outcome is that organizations must prioritize GRC strategies rather than making them an afterthought. In addition, Mark argues that Digital Rights Management (DRM) is critical when implementing a GRC strategy that addresses a zero-trust model focused on protecting sensitive content.

Beyond connecting GRC with DRM, Mark also speaks about artificial intelligence (AI), why it is important to teach cybersecurity life skills to teenagers, what he will be covering in his next book, how lack of DRM governance in the higher education sector is exposing national secrets, and more. This is an insightful discussion for anyone interested in learning from a proven leader who is dedicated to digital transformation and cybersecurity.
