DataSecOps: Protecting Data in the Cloud
September 15, 2020
DataSecOps melds an automated mechanism to manage data, along with security, in an effective operations setup
Data is the backbone of any organization. It’s what makes the company run. It is also where all the company secrets are kept.
But when data analysts began to engage with IT, there was conflict: Whose role came first?
“Because data is responsible for business profitability, data analysts had priority,” explained Ameesh Divatia, co-founder and CEO of cloud data protection company Baffle. “But IT pushed back, warning that you can’t reveal all of your data in an environment you don’t control, in the cloud.”
The pushback was to develop an automated mechanism to manage data, along with security, in a good operations setup. The result was DataSecOps, where data analytics meets DevOps.
