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.

And don’t forget data masking law number 5.

Here’s the obligatory pretty picture, and you can still replay the session over at ZDNet.
