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.

Gartner Positions Oracle in Leaders Quadrant for Data Masking

Gartner, Inc. has named Oracle as a Leader in its first “Magic Quadrant for Data Masking Technology(1). Gartner’s Magic Quadrant reports position vendors within a particular quadrant based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute.

According to Gartner, “Adopting data masking helps enterprises raise the level of security and privacy assurance against abuses. At the same time, data masking helps enterprises meet compliance requirements with the security and privacy standards recommended by regulating/auditing authorities.”

Gartner continued, “…we expect a relatively high speed of technology maturity for data masking. By 2016, the static data masking [SDM] market will reach the Plateau of Productivity in Gartner's Hype Cycle, with approximately 50% of the target audience adopting it.”

“With more structured and unstructured data in enterprise databases, companies need simple and consistent tools to comply with data privacy regulations and mask sensitive data during application development, testing or data analysis,” said Vipin Samar, Vice President of Database Security Product Development, Oracle. “Oracle is the world’s #1 database provider, integrating best-in-class hardware and software to deliver extreme performance and ensure robust database security for our customers.”

Oracle Data Masking Pack is a component of Oracle Enterprise Manager and part of the Oracle Database Security defense-in-depth solution. Get the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Masking Technology here.

(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.
