Whitepaper: GDPR Herausforderungen mit Delphix meistern - 70368

Mit der neuen Datenschutz-Grundverordnung (GDPR) führt die EU strenge Kontrollen bezüglich der Verarbeitung personenbezogener Daten von EU-Bürgern sowie hohe Geldstrafen bei Nicht-Einhaltung eben dieser ein. Die Compliance der Grundverordnung erfordert kostenintensive Kontrollen, die sich mit den direkten geschäftlichen Vorteilen der Verarbeitung personenbezogener Daten rechtfertigen lassen. Die Nutzung von personenbezogenen Daten für Nicht- Produktions-Zwecke, wie Entwicklung und Testing, birgt jedoch die gleichen Risiken und erfordert die gleichen...

Whitepaper: Meeting GDPR Challenges with Delphix - 70368

GDPR introduces stringent controls over the processing of PII relating to people resident in the EU with high penalties for non-compliance.  Compliance requires costly controls that can be justified for processing of PII with direct business benefits.  However, using PII for non-production purposes such as development and test, incur the same risks and need the same costly controls.  Organizations can avoid these risks and costs by using data masking techniques to remove PII from data used for non-production purposes. The Delphix Dynamic Data Platform can help organizations...

May 03, 2018: Zero Trust: Solving IT Security’s Identity Crisis

Although companies are constantly increasing their cybersecurity budgets, this does not seem to help much: each day we learn about new large-scale data breaches.

Apr 19, 2018: Privileged Attack Vectors: Verständnis und Minimierung interner und externer Cyber-Risiken

Eine der unglücklichen Folgen des fortschreitenden Digitaltransformationsprozesses ist die ständig steigende Komplexität der IT-Infrastrukturen von Unternehmen. Die Einführung von Cloud-Technologien, der Ausbau der mobilen Arbeitskräfte und die zunehmende Abhängigkeit von ausgelagerten IT-Mitarbeitern haben dazu geführt, dass der sichere Unternehmensbereich nahezu vollständig verschwunden ist und die Überwachung und Kontrolle privilegierter Zugänge sehr komplex und teuer geworden ist.

Point of View Paper: One Identity - The Journey to IAM Success - 70226

Identity and Access Management (IAM) is many things. For some it’s all about streamlining the user experience through technologies and practices that make it easier for them to securely logon.

And for still others it’s focused on security and compliance through technologies and practices that make governance activities such as attestations easy and complete, or adding a layer of control and visibility to privileged...

Successful IAM Projects Are Not a Rocket Science – if You Do It Right

While we still regularly see and hear about IAM (Identity & Access Management) projects that don’t deliver to the expectations or are in trouble, we all see and hear about many projects that ran well. There are some reasons for IAM projects being more complex than many other IT projects, first and foremost the fact that they are cross-system and cross-organization. IAM integrates a variety of source systems such as HR and target systems, from the mainframe to ERP applications, cloud services, directory services, and many others. They also must connect business and IT, with the...

UK Open Banking – Progress and Challenges

On January 13th, 2018 a new set of rules for banking came into force that open up the market by allowing new companies to offer electronic payment services. These rules follow from the EU Directive 2015/2366 of 25 November 2015 that is commonly referred to as Payment Services Directive II (PSDII). They promise innovation that some believed the large banks in the UK would otherwise fail to provide. However, as well as providing opportunities they also introduce new risks. Nevertheless, it is good to see the progress that has been made in the UK towards implementing this directive. Under...
