Webcast : IDERA Live 2021 Session: Database auditing: On-premises and in the cloud
View this webinar recording as data industry thought leader, visionary, and practitioner, Craig Mullins, presents that organizations must be ever-vigilant in protecting the data that resides in corporate databases. And managing who has access to this data is critical to data security.
Hackers, thieves, and many cyber criminals are constantly on the lookout for ways to harvest your data and use it for their own nefarious purposes. And where do they look? Everywhere! However, your database systems are the most likely target because that is where the data is located! And increasingly, your data is not just on computers running in your data center, but also in the cloud. So, organizations must be ever-vigilant to see who is accessing the sensitive corporate data in your databases usage and protect it from unauthorized access.
Protecting your data for business reasons is a big enough reason to check your data access. In addition, many governmental and industry regulations exist that mandate you do so. Each regulation places different demands on what types of data access we must watch and audit.
Ensuring compliance can be difficult, especially when you need to follow multiple regulations. And you need to capture all relevant data access attempts while still maintaining the service levels for the performance and availability of your applications.
This webinar discusses these issues as well as presenting the requirements for auditing data access in relational databases. The goal of this presentation is to review the regulations affecting the need to audit at a high level. Then, the speaker will discuss the things that need to be audited, along with pros and cons of the various ways of accomplishing this.
