Teradata Corp., the world’s largest company solely focused on data warehousing and enterprise analytics, announced the formation of its Information Security Center of Excellence (InfoSec COE) to help customers better manage the increased risk associated with the dramatic growth in sensitive data, exploding data volumes and privacy compliance requirements.

            “There is growing awareness among customers that they must stay ahead of the risks,” said Robert Cromer, VP Professional Services, Teradata Corp. “The Teradata InfoSec COE makes getting started easy, and the payback is tangible.”

            The Teradata InfoSec COE offers:

  • In-database encryption of sensitive data;
  • Integration with centralized directory services for user authentication and access control;
  • Operating system level server hardening;
  • Risk and regulatory compliance assessments; and
  • Semantic layer security controls at the row and column level.

            The scope of these consulting services extends beyond the Teradata platform to include network connectivity, directory services, firewall configurations, identity management, user provisioning, segregation of duties, tamper-proof audit trail and centralized log consolidation.

            “A comprehensive, holistic, layered approach to security is essential today with the relentless blurring of network boundaries between business partners,” said Cromer.

            The Teradata InfoSec COE team is comprised of world-class, certified security consultants with specific expertise in security policy and compliance, privacy, security strategy, policy, design, and the implementation of best practices. Some of those advanced certifications held by the team include: the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA), the Information Technology Infrastructure Library certification (ITIL), and the Certified Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act professional (CHP).
