Data Leak Prevention (Azure Rights Management): aOS Kuala Lumpur 2018

Good day, everyone, I’m not here to insult but to raise awareness, so please read this with an open mind.

I had met and chat with a few different people from different companies, asking them to do you know about data security, is your company ready for data security, what do you think about security, and etc..

Most had replied to me that data security is expensive and does impact the end users productivity. When they told me that it is expensive, and I had asked them “why do you think it is expensive? “. Their answers had hesitation in it. Anyway, to the ones that told me that security could only bring impact to users, and I replied them “Plan, organize, and proper implementation, never jump/rush to a conclusion” (Disaster plan is important).

Technology is there, is how you look at it and use it. (A joke: Don’t tell me that you go shopping and you just blindly buy stuff without testing or checking whether that it really suits your needs/wants.)

Yes, whenever most users or companies hear about security, the first thing on their mind was expensive and impact. Had you really asked and research and gather enough information to prove it? (You know references) Had you ever compare the investment of data security vs The cost of Fines from regulators? (GDPR law fines? PDPA fines?)

During my talk about Data Leak Prevention (Rights Management) in aOS KL event, on 23rd October 2018. I was trying to gain awareness to the audience about data security too. However, there was one audience told me that Microsoft enterprise license is expensive.

What I replied to the person, who was asking about the pricing of Microsoft enterprise license was to ask for more information with the licensing companies. I should have added another replied “Are you ready to lose 2% to 10% of your company global revenue (or probably both fine and jailed) to regulators?” but my session period had used up another extra 5 mins (felt panic and guilty to used up the time that is not mine already).

So for the people that were asking/telling about the security license is expensive in a technical session, I kindly advise you to think twice or many times to the statement above, which I’ve highlighted in RED.
