Best Practices in Protecting Data during the Development Lifecycle

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

Data privacy is important. You need to protect your data not only in the production environment but also in your testing, and possibly your development environment. More data being managed by IT and the desire by management to provide quick turn around on IT projects has lead to private and confidential data being housed in all of the different environments (production, test and development) associated with the develop lifecycle. To make matters worse, today there are more directives and legislation requiring IT professionals to protect their data no matter where it lives.

This paper, written by Compuware, outlines best practices that should be taken to make our environment more secure from a data perspective. In addition, this paper outlines some of the issues around protecting your data, and why data protection at all levels of the development lifecycle is important. Theft from data loss is affecting corporations and is rocking shareholder confidence. The upsurge in data theft has increased the revenues for security solution providers.

This white paper provides a case study for how implementing Compuware tools improved the security infrastructure for a national health care provider. Securing your data in all of your environments is becoming more important, and in some cases is mandated by legislation. Do not find yourself unprotected. Learning about data security best practices will help ensure you adequately protect your corporate data.
