Database Security and Privacy: A key component to passing your compliance audit
Duration: 60 minutes
It seems as if every time we turn around these days, we are welcomed with new regulations and auditing requirements, but how can we be prepared before the auditor comes knocking? At the same time, according to a January 31, 2011 NetworkWorld article, "the cost of achieving regulatory security compliance is on average $3.5 million each year".
So, how does database security and privacy fit in?
Compliance starts with having the information that auditors require at your fingertips and ensuring the process is in place to make it repeatable. Many of these regulations including HIPAA, PCI, SOX, EU Protection Directive and others require organizations to protect data and produce regular reports. While protecting the integrity of data, standardized processes and automated controls can give the auditors what they need. For example, many regulations require you to document data access and database changes.
In this presentation, we will discuss how securing your databases and protecting your sensitive data can help you pass your compliance audits. By continuously monitoring database activity, you will have the reports you need to validate compliance. The discussion will include:
Understanding where your data resides
Monitoring database activity
Assessing database vulnerabilities
Protecting data at rest and in motion
Protecting non-production data
