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.”

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.
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.
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.
