Last week I gave a webinar on database security for ZDNet, sponsored by Oracle. We had an exceptionally good turnout and ran a couple of polls during the session.
Oracle just posted the results on a new security blog they’ve set up.
One of the questions was on data masking, something we’ve discussed here before. I asked the audience how many actively performed data masking within their organizations.
We got a great response, with a sample size of 139. Not huge, but still somewhat statistically significant. Most organizations don’t data mask, and of those that do, only a combined 13% have a formalized program. No surprises, but it’s nice to see it in some real numbers.
Here’s the obligatory pretty picture, and you can still replay the session over at ZDNet.
