Everything About Your Data Has Changed — Has Your Journey To The Cloud Kept Up? | Part 1 Of 2 | An Imperva Story With Ron Bennatan

Episode Summary

It may be hard to believe, but data doesn’t just magically appear; it is generated by apps, services, AND, well, all of it, by humans. Storage systems and databases do not magically show up on the scene either; they have to be built and hosted to handle the scenarios encapsulated in the business requirements, desired user experience, and data security and privacy policies. Then business teams have to bring this stuff online—and security teams have to protect it and, ultimately, the business.

Episode Notes

It may be hard to believe, but data doesn’t just magically appear; it is generated by apps, services, AND, well, all of it, by humans. Storage systems and databases do not magically show up on the scene either; they have to be built and hosted to handle the scenarios encapsulated in the business requirements, desired user experience, and data security and privacy policies. Then business teams have to bring this stuff online—and security teams have to protect it and, ultimately, the business.

This is just the short version of the story but you can see that it is a lot of work, and it took us some time to get to where we are now: this cyber society where data has become the thread that keeps it all together and intrinsic to the existence of our modern way of life.

One more thing, it mutates—constantly. Over the years, apps and services have changed: built, deployed, hosted, and maintained. The infrastructure has also changed, including the storage methods and the location(s) of the data sets in use.

And we go back to the humans, those that built the technology, feed it with data—the data that they create—and then become the users of it. So their user experience demands and habits also mutate—constantly. And the circle continues.

In between all of this came cybersecurity, business value, society, risks, and opportunities in the cloud. How is that for a change?

So we agree now? Nothing is magic.

Well, except for this conversation with Ron Bennatan. It will make you think and look at data and how to manage it and protect it from different perspectives.

Thinking—now that is magic.
