This month, we will hear about how to secure MongoDB for your organizations requirements. At the end of the session, you'll have more insight into MongoDB's security features and ecosystem products that enhance its existing strengths. MongoDB is being rapidly adopted by enterprises in which data privacy, security, and adherence to compliance standards are of paramount concern, including financial, telcos, and healthcare. Many such organizations are legally required to comply with standards such as PCI/DSS (payment card information), Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, and a variety of data privacy and financial recording regulations in place around the world. Organizations that comply with these standards are less likely to suffer from data breaches that can generate hefty fines and damage to brand loyalty.
This session describes best practices for securing and protecting MongoDB data, considering both data in motion and at rest. These best practices rely on a combination of infrastructure capabilities such as appropriate firewalls, native capability in MongoDB such as Kerberos authentication and new more granular roles, and technology partnerships, including IBM for its implementation of a data activity monitoring solution for MongoDB.
