Security Insider is your resource for information on the latest developments in data security, regulatory compliance issues, technology, and trends affecting the industry.

By many, encryption is considered the hardest part of data security, and key management the hardest part of encryption. As such, it is far too common to see businesses not properly storing their encryption keys - for example, keeping them in a database in the clear or even burned into their application’s code. This podcast discusses the latest trends and perspectives around encryption key management and how to better protect your data.

One of the things IBM Cloud is doing differently is providing enhanced security with bare metal servers in a hosted private cloud.
By using the TDE, coupled with an encryption key manager, organizations can protect their private data at a lower cost.
Living on the Edge Nov. 19, 2019
While it is easy enough to encrypt data on the edge, key management has proven to be somewhat of a challenge.
Join Patrick Townsend, Founder and CEO of Townsend Security, as he discusses the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which organizations are required to meet the law, rights granted to consumers, and what information it covers.
Join Patrick Townsend, Founder and CEO of Townsend Security, as he talks about how to protect data in VMware’s vSphere and vSAN with encryption and key management.
Encryption key management has attained “essential infrastructure” status. When done properly, key management can protect encrypted data - and in the event of a data breach, can even provide a company with an exemption for a breach notification.
Learn about vSphere and vSAN encryption, deploying multiple, redundant key servers as a part of the KMS Cluster configuration for maximum resilience and high availability, as well as meeting compliance regulations for your organization.
Learn about how to use encryption and key management to help meet GDPR, the right of erasure, also known as the right to be forgotten, and how to avoid bad key management practices which will result in GDPR compliance failures.
Join Patrick Townsend as he discusses the PCI recommendations, how to meet 2FA compliance requirements with a mobile based solution, and how Townsend Security is helping IBM i users meet the latest two factor authentication compliance requirements.
Learn about leveraging the WiredTiger storage engine, achieving a strong security posture with key management, and how to easily begin encrypting data in MongoDB Enterprise.
For this special podcast, Clayton Weise of KeyInfo joins us to discuss running the IBM i in the cloud, maintaining a strong security posture, and common questions about cloud/on-prem hybrid networks.
Cyber criminals attempt to escalate their level of privilege by stealing and using administrative credentials.
Innovations in technology are impacting payments, lending, insurance, and even compliance. With huge amounts of private data being dealt with on a daily basis, data security is a top concern - and the best way to protect it is with encryption.
The finance industry is increasingly being held accountable for the security, confidentiality and integrity of non-public customer information.
As Covered Entities who take ePHI move to the cloud, they need to understand the important role of having a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) in place and how to ensure that they are meeting HIPAA compliance when ePHI is outside of their walls.
As the IBM i continues to evolve, so do sources of security logs. With logs being created from so many different sources, it is important to collect and monitor them in real-time to detect security events.
The large majority of security breaches occur on systems that have been compromised days, weeks, or even months before sensitive data is lost. With the release of V7R3, IBM i administrators have additional security logs to collect and monitor.
Once data is encrypted, private information depends on key management to stay safe. As enterprises move to the cloud, it is important for key management solutions to provide high-availability, key management to a wide range of applications and databases.
Join Patrick Townsend as he discusses what this partnership means (from a security perspective), compliance considerations, and how organizations can better secure their data in IBM SoftLayer.
