Topic: DB2 Database Security and Privacy

Speaker: Dean Compher


Identity TheftIf you aren’t scared about the security of your database, you should be!

  • Is your database protected?
  • Do you know who is accessing your data?
  • Who is changing your data?
  • Who is stealing your data?
  • DB2 is not your grandma’s database anymore. Don’t protect it like it is.

For database security answers, “DB2 Dean” Compher is the go-to guy. Come hear Dean teach us the ins and outs of database security at our April meeting.

dataprotectionThe security and privacy of the data in your relational databases is becoming harder to protect all of the time. As you can see from the news reports about the Target credit card breach and the State of Utah Medicaid records breach, perimeter security is not adequate. Multiple layers of security are needed to have a good defense including the ability to obfuscate test databases that you copy from production and being able to monitor who is doing what in your production DB2 databases and send immediate alerts when policies are violated.

This includes obvious threats such as access from unknown IP addresses and observing unusual patterns of access. In this discussion we will review the tools IBM provides to centrally privatize test data and monitor production access for your DB2 on iSeries databases and other databases in your organization as well.
