The topic of Data Security has gathered a lot of attention the last few years. This is due to a number of reasons. The number of cyber security attacks has grown over the last years due to the constantly rising number of connected devices to the internet and the adoption of cloud technologies, the increasing complexity of customer environments leaving them prone to vulnerabilities and many others. We all have heard of many examples of data breaches leaving millions of customer data info exposed.
In addition, authorities place regulations for data protection and privacy, like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) recently applied in EU, leaving every organization striving to conform with them.
Whatever the scope, avoiding data breaches or regulation conformance, data security is important, even within the same organization in the sense of ensuring that only the right people have access to important information.
However straightforward the need might be, the solution is not. Security cannot be managed from a single point within an organization. It requires actions on several points, for instance, within the Active Directory, the databases, the applications. From a data perspective alone, you need to ensure the right authentication and authorization mechanisms are in place. You need to make sure data are secured, whether at transit or at rest. You need to avoid exposing sensitive information to unauthorized users. You need to audit access, both for regulatory compliance but also for identifying unauthorized access and security breaches.
