Bloor organises regular events for our end-user and vendor communities including:
  • Annual Bloor Symposium
  • Executive programme events such as roundtables, workshops and seminars
  • Executive peer-to-peer networking events
  • Tele-briefings and Webinars
We have found that CIOs and other senior executives are keen to engage in discussion and debate with technology partners. Bloor brings relevant service and technology partners together with our CIO and leadership communities, in ways that maximise the value to both, making them mutually beneficial conversations. Bloor events enable CIOs and other senior executives to come together with technology vendors and service providers in a non-sales environment for the mutual benefit of both the vendor and the business. What sets Bloor apart from other providers are three key points:
  • We have close relationships with many of the most successful CIOs around the world
  • The calibre of our facilitator, often an ex-CIO, will create a frank, honest, and constructive atmosphere where you can gain the insight into what your target audience thinks.
  • Being vendor, media & research agnostic, we are recognised by the CIO community as an independent voice, able to create mutually-beneficial conversations between CIOs and vendors
Bloor is happy to assist you if your organisation is running or participating in an event. For instance, we can provide a speaker on an appropriate topic from among our independent analysts or a facilitator. Where appropriate we can carry out background research on the issues being addressed. For more information, please contact us.

More Information / Register

Data is the lifeblood of organisations. As volumes of information continue to spiral, data security is becoming an ever increasing concern and all organisations need to strive to improve their efforts to ensure that all sensitive data is stored and communicated securely.

This webinar will feature new research in a Bloor Research report by Fran Howarth, which looks at the data security concerns facing organisations today and the mitigating actions that are being put in place to reduce risk and drive more effective security policies.

Fran will be joined by Boldon James CEO, Martin Sugden, who will demonstrate how Data Classification solutions should be at the heart of any data centric security approach to minimise the risks associated with data loss, increase user awareness and improve the effectiveness of other security solutions such as DLP.

Attendees will learn how:
• Data Security concerns can be mitigated through taking a data-centric view of security, rather than focusing on the perimeter.
• Implementing effective data governance across the information lifecycle is vital to reduce data loss risk.
• Data classification is now being seen as a foundational tool for data security and information governance.
• Classification Metadata can drive other security and data management tools – such as DLP, encryption, rights management and data governance
• Involving users in security can improve security effectiveness
• Security policies and tools need to be extended to all systems and devices, including mobile devices.
