New interesting data security method for Cloud data
I agree that "Looking at today's security problems, the landscape is littered with methods that are largely manual and disconnected".
I agree that "Business systems are launched and retired faster than security teams can identify, analyze, and track", but I think that data is more constant.
I agree that "Risks are implicitly accepted by business sponsors during design, development, and operation, but mitigated only when pressed by security and risk management", but I think that security should be built into the data values.
I agree that "Security policies are enforced primarily by manually executed audits and processes", but I think that they should instead be automated.
I agree that "Scaling today's information security and risk management problems to cloud velocity is untenable, but I found interesting new in a report from the Aberdeen Group that "saw a big advantage in performance" and also scalability over traditional security methods.
The report also revealed that "Over the last 12 months, tokenization users had 50% fewer security-related incidents(e.g., unauthorized access, data loss or data exposure than tokenization non-users". Nearly half of the respondents (47%) are currently using tokenization for something other than credit card data. The name of the study, released a few months ago, is "Tokenization Gets Traction".
I think that the Aberdeen approach based on data tokenization is an interesting data security method for Cloud data.
