Are access and authentication enough when it comes to securing your data, especially an organization’s most critical data? The short answer is no. In 2015, many customers of large and small companies including T-Mobile, Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield, UCLA Health, Scottrade, and more fell victim to data breaches. No industry is immune. TDWI has noted for years that most data warehouses rely on user-centric authorization almost exclusively, with little or no use of data-centric security. Given the ever increasing number of data breaches, security upgrades are certainly needed for data warehouses and the larger evolving data ecosystem.
Data-centric security – security that operates on the data or very close to the data- is becoming an increasingly crucial topic to organizations. Methods such as tokenization, encryption, and masking are being updated to deal with ever increasing amounts of disparate data. Innovations in monitoring technologies are also occurring. And of course, analytics is being used to help detect patterns in security related data. Join TDWI Research Director for Advanced Analytics, Fern Halper and Jay Irwin, Director Teradata InfoSec Center of Expertise to learn more about data centric security. Examples from financial services, healthcare, insurance and more will be provided.
