Can you continue to ignore data security?

As big data exponentially increases the amount of information organizations access, store and archive, the imperative to manage it securely gains attention and urgency. To protect privacy, federal, state and international governments have established a plethora of new regulations mandating the security of personally identifiable information including payment card data, human resources documents, medical, and other financial information. Industry analysts expect many corporations will need to meet the new data encryption obligations fast, or face significant fines for non-compliance.  With the explosion of eCommerce and electronic records, retail establishments, government agencies and the medical industry – among others – are rife with terabytes of personal and business data and vulnerable to security breaches. For companies that collect credit card, financial and medical information and sensitive business data, encrypting data and masking it down to the field level could be the answer to meet emerging compliance requirements. Those that don’t implement such measures will soon face hefty fines.
