The Bad Things that can happen if Encryption Management Fails
The recent surplus of security compromises is evidence of major encryption management failure across the IT landscape. Recent research has highlighted some alarming facts; companies have little idea how many of these security assets they have in their inventories, where they are deployed, who has access to them, or how they are managed. With little understanding of best management practices, enterprises are likely to experience significant security, operational, and audit risks. Drawing on many years of work and research in Global 2000 organizations in financial services, retail, manufacturing, telecom and other industries, this session explores the challenge of scaling and managing encryption assets. The session will address how the role of IT security has moved from merely a technological challenge to being a fundamental part of the business. It is essential that organizations apply field-tested, in-production methodologies and best practices for effective key and certificate management.
Cloud Security Depends on Effective Key Management
Enterprises have amassed regulated and valuable data that flows within and beyond their networks, all of which must be protected. As a result, thousands of encryption keys and certificates have been deployed across their global infrastructures and in the cloud—to secure the data and authenticate systems. How are these critical security assets being managed? Organizations that fail to properly manage these assets subject themselves to security vulnerabilities, non-compliance and unplanned outages, all with increasing frequency and cost.
