As I wrote about in my last blog, Data Privacy goes well beyond just protecting production environments and in his latest article, Shawn Moe discusses how to bring privacy directly to the development environment. http
In the past few weeks, I have traveled around New England and met with several organizations that are suddenly looking at making data masking a key priority in their data management activities. I asked them why it has taken so long and the common answer was "we had limited budget and had to start with production. We knew there was a need, but we had to prioritize. Now we have been told that it is mandatory and we need to reduce risk immediately". So, what has brought on this risk and need to insurance? Well, states are starting to both regulate and enforce data privacy standards, PCI seems to be going from paper process to reality of not being able to do business and SOX is starting to be enforced too. So, what does that mean for you? Start looking at what sensitive information is being passed all around your organization, limit the amount being passed and mask anything that is sensitive.
Follow Shawn's process and see how your organization can protect the privacy of data from the start!
Goodbye for now and hope to see you at IOD
