A Practical Solution that Facilitates Database
Compliance to Security Mandates and Industry Initiatives
This session will discuss solutions for companies to
comply with the strictest government and industry regulations on data
privacy and security, providing financial institutions and healthcare
companies compliance with the most stringent data security standards,
including the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, (GLBA), the Health Insurance
Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Visa Cardholder
Information Security Program (CISP), the American Express Data Security
Standard, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, and the California Senate Bill No. 1386.
While laws and regulations interpret "protecting privacy"
in a number of ways, any enterprise solution for protecting data -
especially data at rest - must involve two things: secure encryption
technology to protect confidential data and careful management of access
to the cryptography keys that unlock the encrypted data.
This session will discuss designing information systems
that protect the privacy and ownership of individual information while not
impeding the flow of information. We present experience from many years of
industrial use of cryptography in database security.
This session will discuss performance aspects, transparent
storage and search of encrypted database fields, and the use the key
concepts of security dictionary, type transparent cryptography and propose
solutions on how to transparently store and search encrypted database
fields in DB2 databases.

Making Data Management Relevant and Safe in the
Data management, including the DBA
functions, insofar as it is seen as a mere infrastructure function, can be
at risk of being outsourced or offshored.
DBA's are often of a temperament which
causes them to retreat into their cubicle and not engage with the rest of
the organization, particularly the executive suite.
To ensure their survival, DBAs and
others involved in data management must have their antennae up detecting
needs for data, information, and information delivery which they can meet.
They must be proactive in making their role beneficial to all their
constituencies. We will discuss some of those roles, and issues.
