Irving, TX, May 11, 2016 — (PR Newswire) — Thru, Inc., a leading enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) provider, is hosting a free live video panel webinar with special guest Cheryl McKinnon, principal analyst at Forrester Research, on Thursday, May 12, at 12 p.m. CDT. Titled, “Everyday File Sharing is Risky Business.,” the webinar will reveal the startling findings based on a commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Thru and the top threats that companies face when it comes to security and innovation. The discussion also includes recommendations from Principal Forrester Analyst of actions companies should take immediately.
According to the study, more than 75 percent of technology companies are struggling to secure their intellectual property and data due to the careless use of email and freeware like dropbox.com, which brings major security risk to innovation. Without data governance, a company’s valuable data could end up in the wrong hands and a lack of a security strategy could open the doors to hackers, malware incursion or data sovereignty issues. The discussion aims to educate professionals on how to protect company data, security posture and ultimately their bottom line.
