It’s refreshing to see a company like Spirion that can ease the concerns of auditors and customers alike by showing them exactly where they’re most at risk,” said Codling. “I’ve seen firsthand at the highest government level how major task forces are combating cybersecurity vulnerabilities and compliance holes – with data sprawl as one of the leading challenges. I am thrilled to be working alongside Spirion’s top data security and privacy experts to simplify and automate the data discovery process to minimize data vulnerabilities and keep users compliant.”
