Best Practices for Adding Data Protection to Cloud Applications

November 17, 2021

The panel will open with a discussion of why the most sensitive data requires protection at the application-layer, rather than, for example, protection for data at rest. From there the panel will discuss alternatives for data protection including both tokenization and traditional encryption. The panel will compare cloud-native and serverless application architectures and how their unique attributes affect data protection implementation. Finally best practices for selecting a data protection solution for such applications will cover separation of duties, the role of DevSecOps, RESTful versus embedded libraries, and why a secure key source and root of trust is needed.
