Protecting sensitive data in the cloud: New approaches to mitigate database security risk
The rapid adoption of cloud technologies, driven by the huge advantages they offer businesses in terms of productivity, efficiency and cost savings, is throwing up evermore complex security headaches for information security practitioners tasked with protecting an organisation’s sensitive data. As data moves to the cloud, databases are increasingly vulnerable to breaches, and as a result enterprises need to ensure that they apply rigorous strategies and controls to protect their information assets. During this talk, we will discuss how to classify and discover data, manage the risks associated with migrating data to the cloud and identify effective tools and techniques to detect and respond to data breaches.
