Tech Talk: Dynamic Data Privacy Using Fine-Grained Access Control

February 18, 2016 from 08:30 AM – 09:30 AM EST

Changing data privacy requirements are merciless when it comes to accommodating your existing database access controls and applications. Data leakage can result when common queries are used by different users. Users with elevated privileges may get exposure to data that they have no business seeing. But you may not find out about these issues until it becomes an emergency.

How can you address these issues quickly when you cannot access the database to make database-level access control changes, or cannot afford the risk to other applications to put in appropriate access control measures?

With the Guardium data security platform, you can seamlessly and automatically rewrite database queries to protect sensitive data, based on the current user access, without accessing the database directly. This capability is an extremely powerful and flexible form of access control that allows organizations to quickly address a wide range of security concerns.

In this tech talk you will learn:

  • What is the query rewrite capability in Guardium and how it compares with other protection mechanisms
  • An architectural overview
  • The workflow for implementing query rewrite
  • A live demo
