Data Masking & Anonymization
High profile mega-breaches of sensitive data have led to serious costs to the breached organizations and an increasing awareness of the problem. This in turn has led to a slew of powerful data privacy regulations. Organizations are responding with new roles such as the DevSecOps and new, more powerful and versatile data masking / data anonymization technologies deployed in more effective ways.
This paper describes the concepts, drivers and solutions that data masking / anonymization can provide, and the latest implementation scenarios and algorithms. A brief overview of the DOT Anonymizer data masking technology from Arcad Software is given.
