De-Risking Your Enterprise Data Warehouse
Unsecured sensitive data in the enterprise data warehouse and derivative big data instances represents a major source of business risk. Native access control and encryption to ensure only authorized users can see sensitive, protected data is a necessary and good first step, but in regulated industries this step alone is insufficient. The problem is that access control does not police those with privileged administrative rights – the risk of internal misuse is not reduced and users remain a target for external threat vectors. Bad actors outside of organizations can spend months stealing business intelligence system credentials until they have in the clear access to everything in the data warehouse. Organizations need to evolve from protecting access to protecting the data itself. This approach has been proven by over 50 organizations in regulated industries who have taken this extra step to de-risk their enterprise data warehouse instances.
