Data Platform Security Fundamentals

Currently it is a case of when, not if, we will have to deal with a data breach or cyber-attack. Given this situation it is important to understand how we can minimise the blast radius and impact of the event.

Together we will work through the core fundamentals of how to approach security for our data platform systems. Not just infrastructure, not just the database, but how we can use the different layers to buy us time to detect an attack and respond.

Key topics covered will be.
- Zero Trust and secure by design mindset.
- Authentication and Authorisation
- Infrastructure elements
- Data security options
- Availability and Recoverability

While not providing you with a silver bullet to solve all your problems. This session will provide you with the foundations needed to ask the right questions and the right approach to help improve your security posture.
