Data Security White Papers
Data Security white papers and technology resources for implementing and optimizing Data Security strategy, solutions, Data Security products, and more.
In recent years, data has gone from being a collection of disparate resources housed in various IT systems to being a main component of enterprise productivity and innovation. More and more often, product development and demographic targeting are driven by data aggregation and sophisticated analysis. Where only the largest organizations dealt in terabytes a decade ago, massive sets of market and customer data-often described under the moniker Big Data-are now the norm. Data management and protection has always been an essential part of any enterprise IT infrastructure. However, in today's environment, it is more important than ever before.
Read this whitepaper to learn how Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) has been an industry-standard data protection solution for two decades. But, where most competitors focus exclusively on Backup and Restore, TSM is a far more comprehensive data-protection solution.
Top tips for securing big data environments - Why big data doesn't have to mean big security challenges
Big data environments create significant opportunities. However, organizations must come to terms with the security challenges they introduce, for example big data environments allow organizations to aggregate more and more data-much of which is financial, personal, intellectual property or other types of sensitive data - most of the data is subject to compliance regulations.
As big data environments ingest more data, organizations will face significant risks and threats to the repositories containing this data. Failure to balance data security and quality reduces confidence in decision making.
Organizations don't have to feel overwhelmed when it comes to securing big data environments. The same security fundamentals for securing databases, data warehouses and file share systems can be applied to securing Hadoop implementations.
Top 3 Myths about Big Data Security : Debunking common misconceptions about big data security
Data volumes are growing rapidly with no end in sight. Big data represents massive business possibilities and competitive advantage for organizations that are able to harness and use that information. But how are they protecting that data? This eBook addresses three myths of big data security.
Three guiding principles for data security and compliance
The information explosion, the proliferation of endpoint devices, growing user volumes and new computing models like cloud, social business and big data have created new vulnerabilities. Data security is a moving target-as data grows, more sophisticated threats emerge; the number of regulations increase; and changing economic times make it difficult to secure and protect data.
Because data is a critical component of daily business operations, it is essential to ensure privacy and protect data no matter where it resides. Different types of information have different protection requirements; therefore, organizations must take a holistic and systematic approach to safeguarding information.
IBM solutions for data security and privacy are designed to support this holistic approach and incorporate intelligence to proactively address IT threats and enterprise risks. Read three guiding principles that will help organizations achieve better security and compliance without impacting production systems or straining already-tight budgets:
* Understand and Define
* Secure and Protect
* Monitor and Audit
