DRM versus Information Protection

  • TYPE: Business Case Study DATE: Thursday, April 24, 2008 TIME: 10:30-11:30 LOCATION: Antares

During an innovation project, E.ON IS has been examining the integration of two different approaches to access information at application level: Digital Rights Management (DRM) and Data Flow Protection (DFP). In this business case study, the challenges implementing a DRM solution in a complex AD structure and the use cases where we see a need for it will be examined.

Furthermore, I will explain why a simple USB protection solution is not enough to protect data flowing through an enterprise. I will present a different concept which is a rule based solution that controls the data flow at application level, and how these two approaches are being combined to form a higher form of security.
