Elevate your Game: Take Data Security to the Next Level

Five benefits of supercharging your data security and compliance efforts with a security-specific big data lake

This paper describes the roadblocks that organizations may face as they seek to take their data security and compliance efforts to the next level while juggling multiple priorities, including:

  • The administrative demands imposed by the management of huge volumes of data.
  • The need to retain those volumes of data over longer time horizons.
  • The need to maintain or improve performance/speed of reporting.
  • The need to provide direct access to data (“free” the data) to users with many different roles and responsibilities.
  • The need to enrich audit data with other types of related security and compliance data while also performing complex analytics on this data to reveal new risks and/or insights.

The pages that follow will explore how organizations can take steps to address the hurdles above, and in doing so, reach new levels of efficiency and sophistication in data security and compliance management.

5 Epic Fails in Data Security: Common Data Security Pitfalls and How to Avoid Them

Data security is on everyone’s mind these days, and for good reason. Although the number of data breaches in the first half of 2017 was about the same as the first halves of 2015 and 2016, the number of records stolen between January 1 and June 30, 2017 has exceeded all of 2016. And that’s not counting one of largest security breaches of all time, announced in September. Many factors are contributing to the increase in successful attacks – the erosion of network perimeters and increased attack surfaces offered by more complex IT environments, a growing use of cloud services and the new demands that places on security practices, and the increasingly sophisticated nature of cyber criminals – and the landscape continues to evolve.

Forrester Report: The Eight Business And Security Benefits Of Zero Trust

In response to increasingly complex cyberattacks, security pros devote resources to granular aspects of their networks. This is understandable and necessary to a degree, but it's also a great way to lose sight of your ultimate goal: protecting customers and empowering the business. Zero Trust networks accomplish the dual tasks of deep, continuous data inspection across the network and lean operation and oversight — tasks that seem mutually exclusive in traditional networks. This report highlights the eight most significant ways Zero Trust boosts security and your business. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.

The Total Economic Impact of IBM Security Guardium – en_US (April 2018)

Data security presents a complex challenge to organizations. The value of sensitive data, and particularly customer data, has increased exponentially over time, but with it comes an increase in potential liability and exposure. Successful enterprise security and compliance strategy needs to balance out: the rapid growth of data within organizations’ environments; the complexity of regulations and compliance across industries; and the threat of internal and external attacks.

To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with a Guardium implementation, Forrester interviewed three customers with multiple years of experience using Guardium. IBM Security Guardium offers a family of integrated modules for managing the entire data security and compliance life cycle, which is built on a single, unified infrastructure with a unified user experience. Guardium is designed to support and secure a wide range of data environments, including: databases; data warehouses; file systems; and cloud, virtual, and big data-based systems.

5 Steps to Achieve Risk-Based Application Security Management

Software applications support the most sensitive and strategically important business processes of most enterprises. Yet application security is one of the most neglected fields of cybersecurity.

IT and business management typically have no visibility into the overall state of application security. Activities for assessing, prioritizing and remediating application vulnerabilities are ad hoc, fragmented and carried out at low levels in the IT security organization. Quality assurance and software development groups lack the knowledge and incentives to address critical vulnerabilities early in application development lifecycles, where testing and fixing vulnerabilities are most cost-effective.

Taking the pain out of regulatory compliance

Fear of data misuse has led to both general and industry-specific data-privacy regulations worldwide that many organizations now must meet, and it’s important to embrace their requirements. The role of data-holding organizations has increasingly shifted to being stewards of information, in particular in the United States and the European Union (EU). And failure to comply with regulations can mean not only reputational damage, but substantial fines and even jail time. Just meeting compliance mandates, though, may not help you actively spot and stop a data breach.
