You Need to Know Who Is Accessing Your Data, But Do You Really?

Knowing who is accessing what data is at the heart of security. Today, users and attackers get to your data through a mesh of web applications, APIs, and microservices. Unfortunately, your database logs only report the querying source as an authorized intermediary application without the originating requestor's information. This blind spot causes glaring gaps during audits, slows incident response, and impede breach detection. 

Learn how to apply new ways of continuously linking originating users' information to every database access with cohesive interworking between edge WAF, server RASP, and Data Activity Monitoring tools.

Automating Cybersecurity

IT security professionals all face one major issue: being asked to do more, with less resources. Automation and integration are a necessity in order to meet the demands of an organization's security needs. Managing risk without diminishing the speed and quality of development is achievable by integrating security into agile processes, like DevOps or CI/CD. Since most security teams are understaffed, automated solutions are becoming a requirement, rather than an option to properly manage the ever-increasing workload. 

Takeaways: 

  • Automation is required to meet today's security demand  
  • DevOps can operate more efficiently with CI/CD 
  •  IT security staff are responsible for more than ever

  • Any organization can fall victim to a data breach 
  • Having a plan of action is essential to business survival
