“Data Masking:  Strategies for Data Protection”, presented by Steve Dine, Managing Partner and Founder of Datasource Consulting, LLC.

 

Abstract
Data Security, regulatory and compliance requirements are driving organizations to protect sensitive data such as personally identifiable information (PII), health records and credit card data.  However, obfuscating data is more complex than it seems given the myriad of requirements to not only create realistic masked values, but also to provide the ability to return the data to its original form.  In this presentation, we’ll define data masking and discuss the different techniques available to secure your data without diminishing its usability.
