As governmental regulations expand, organizations need to deploy better controls to ensure quality data and properly protected database systems. Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, BASEL II, PCI DSS and more make the news, but what do they mean in terms of your data? And what steps can be taken to ensure compliance?
Anyone who has been paying attention lately knows at least something about the large number of data breaches in the news… and their impact on business. Data breaches and the threat of lost or stolen data will continue to plague organizations until comprehensive plans are enacted to combat them. Many of these breaches have been at the database level, and more will be unless better data protection policies and procedures are enacted on operational databases.
As a result of expanded regulations and the ever-present specter of data breaches, data security has grown in importance. And that places new burdens on DBAs and data management professionals.
