In a dialogue with Amrita Jayakumar for The Washington Post, Verizon Enterprise Solutions’ Maureen Kaplan, managing director of healthcare cloud and security, discusses what companies should be doing when it comes to data protection—especially in light of recent large-scale breaches such as those at Target and Neiman Marcus.

A strong identity-management program that regularly logs who has access to what is essential, Kaplan says. (Registration may be required to access this story.)
