• Backing up Data in the Age of Security Compliance and Security Breaches.

    Description: As we move into the future, data becomes worth stealing and is stolen often. Backups become critical not only to be safe incase of an accident but safe from people and computers who should not have your data. Security Compliance is here (and there will be more in the future) and both PCI and GDPR have requirements for backups. Plus our data may be what thieves really want so encryption, storage and retention policies must be looked at and used. Come share your experiences with database security and learn from others on how to make databases secure and compliant.

He was a data recovery specialist at Percona and now devotes his free time to protecting databases at TwinDB. 6:30 - 7:00 -- Doors open/general socializing & food 7:00 - 7:15 -- Intro/announcements 7:15 - 8:15(ish) -- Main presentation 8:15ish - 8:30 -- General discussion/Q&A/networking/etc. 9:00 -- END.
