Extending Data Governance Beyond the Database

Traditionally, enterprise data governance started within your database management system by establishing the appropriate access control and auditing policies to prevent unauthorized access and demonstrate those controls. Now a new generation of database security solutions allow organizations to extend database security policies beyond the database management system and across the enterprise.

By monitoring traffic to all their enterprise databases, organizations can now detect unauthorized activity before it reaches the database, and can take appropriate measures to block that activity. In addition, these solutions can consolidate database logs and analyze them in real-time to generate alerts as well as provide a secure centralized repository for audit data for regulatory purposes.

Conceptually similar to network intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS/IPS) or security information and event management (SIEM) that are part of every organization’s network, KuppingerCole believes adoption of this new technology will become just as widespread at the database layer and will help strengthen existing controls within database management systems.

Join the discussion, March 21, 7 a.m. PST/11 a.m. EST, and learn about the new Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall solution. You will also hear about the organizations that have already adopted this solution as part of a database security defense-in-depth strategy.

(ISC)2 Security Briefing Series - The Easy Target: Your Unsecured Databases

Please join Oracle and (ISC)2 as we discuss the importance of detective, preventive, and administrative security controls for a comprehensive database security defense-in-depth strategy.

Part 1: 60 Seconds to Infiltrate, Months to Discover

According to leading industry reports, 98% of breached data originates from database servers and nearly half are compromised in less than a minute! Almost all victims are not aware of a breach until a third party notifies them and nearly all breaches could have been avoided through the use of basic controls. Join (ISC)2 and Oracle on January 31, 2013 for Part 1 of our next Security Briefings series that will focus on database security and the detective, preventive, and administrative controls that can be put in place to mitigate the risk to your databases. There's no turning back the clock on stolen data, but you can put in place controls to ensure your organization won't be the next headline.

Part 2: As Attacks Evolve, Can You Prevent Them?
Thursday, February 21, 2013, 10am PST/1pm EST
The collaboration and sharing of information made possible by social media has enabled a new class of social engineering attacks, greatly increasing the risks posed by insiders for most organizations. Consider that LinkedIn searches for "Database Administrator" and "System Administrator" return over one million potential targets. In fact, stolen credentials were involved in 84% of the attacks that have resulted in over one billion records stolen from database servers. Join (ISC)2 and Oracle on February 21, 2013 for Part 2 of our Security Briefings series as we focus on database security and the preventive controls that can be used to mitigate the risks posed by insiders and attackers exploiting legitimate access to data and database infrastructure by adopting a defense-in-depth strategy. 
Part 3: Data Breaches are the Tip of the Iceberg
Date/Time: April 4, 2013, 10am PST/1pm EST
Digital security is the new battleground and cyber criminals are focused on stealing corporate and government secrets for financial and strategic gain. With increasing internal and external attacks and stronger regulatory compliance enforcement, investing in data security is a top priority for organizations; yet, significant gaps still exist at the very core — the databases that house the crown jewels. Join (ISC)2 and Oracle on Apr 4, 2013 for the conclusion of our Security Briefings series as we summarize implementing an effective database security strategy by using administrative controls that can help organizations discover where sensitive data resides and who has privileged access to this data.

Concerned That Security Investments Still Leave You Vulnerable?

This Thursday at 9am, the ISACA Webcast Series presents a joint Forrester and Oracle presentation on how to formulate a database security strategy.

With the growing internal and external attacks on corporate and government applications and stronger regulatory compliance enforcement, investing in data security is a top priority for organizations. Yet significant gaps still exist at the very core — the databases that house the corporate crown jewels. A recent study by Forrester Consulting* found that most organizations don’t have a comprehensive enterprise database security strategy resulting in ad-hoc deployment of point solutions focused on detection rather than prevention. In this webcast, guest speaker Forrester Research, Inc. Principal Analyst Noel Yuhanna will discuss the findings of this study and the importance of an integrated and comprehensive database security platform that can provide better security at lower cost. You will also hear from Roxana Bradescu, Director of Database Security Product Management at Oracle, about the recent innovations in Oracle’s database security platform, and learn how you can make the most of your security investments.

Register now for ISACA Webcast this Thursday, February 9 at 9am PT/12pm ET.

*Formulate A Database Security Strategy To Ensure Investments Will Actually Prevent Data Breaches And Satisfy Regulatory Requirements, a commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Oracle, January 2012.
