Big Data Security & Compliance Program Top Challenges

It might become a sweeping experience to run a program for data security. It can prove to be quite thankless, too. Taking into consideration both, database and security, the management of sources holding sensitive information is a priority, and database administrators face the pressure to:

  1. Store information related to data security as well as compliance for a longer period.
  2. Keep the prices in check.
  3. Provide reports on the operations, compliance and data security.
  4. Find important analytics as well as insights at a faster rate than ever.
  5. Top challenges of Data Security as well as Compliance for Database administrators.

Let’s take a look at the top challenges that cause hindrance in data security along with compliance.

  1. Huge Data Volumes

Predictions have been made that there will be a growth of international data volume to 163ZBs in the next decade, with a tenfold expansion from the present volume, as the majority of the growth starting from organizations instead of consumers. As there is a continuous expansion of data, storage demands have evolved as well. Solutions of data security might be scalable, but their scalability isn’t infinite, thus creating many problems.

  1. Continuous Queue for the reports on Compliance and Data Security

Meeting requirements for compliance as well as data security is not enough. It is also expected that the database administrators will extract data as needed by stakeholders, for on-demand delivery. This process is time-consuming, with huge data volumes getting stored in platforms of data security platforms. In addition, insights of data security as well as compliance can lead to an increase in the requirements of storage, creating a bottleneck.

  1. Requirements of Data Retention

The mandates of compliance are now making storage of data for as many as five years obligatory for organizations. The enterprise’ own requirements of retention are additions to data stores, too. The solution of data security was not supposed to work as a solution for data storage. However, the fast-growing requirements can add to the load that might weigh things down. As a result, the performance becomes slower with storage capacity getting taxed, as well as processing power, and the storage cost rises.

  1. Analysis and Enhancement of Insights

Data is stored in many different places, and as a result of that, it is almost impossible to find a method for cross-referencing, sifting through everything, and delivering what is really wanted by the management, i.e. insights on compliance and data security.
