The Insider: Data Security, Privacy, and Insights into Data Protect Solutions

In this episode of The Insider, Craig Clay, DFIN President of Global Capital Markets, speaks with two experts on a topic requested by many viewers: how can companies ensure security and data privacy in a fluid regulatory environment?

The experts — Rob Westmacott and Darren Wray — founded the leading data security and privacy software provider Guardum, which DFIN acquired in 2021. They are now executives at DFIN Data Protect Solutions, a Donnelley Financial Solutions Company.

The conversation is especially timely. In the world of M&A, which requires parties to manage large volumes of sensitive data, privacy is a constant concern. And, as the threat of data breaches and security attacks continues to rise, it is essential to establish protections that are up to the task. Add in stringent regulations, with new rules on the horizon in different countries, and you have an even more complex environment that demands the latest technology and expertise to safeguard critical corporate documents, such as employee personal data, commercially market-sensitive information, and tax information.

In this episode, we take a deep dive into these Data Privacy and Security issues as well as our latest software offering in this space, Data Protect Solutions by DFIN, our purpose-built data security and privacy software.
