As data breaches continue to increase, more and more companies are looking for ways to protect their data. These violations can have serious economic impacts on the organization, especially if the GDPR regulations have been implemented, and those that disclose data will face a fine of up to 4% of their global income.
Choosing an internal data warehouse can be very expensive and complicated. This is because companies need to be fully responsible for their own data security and need constant attention and monitoring. Fortunately, migrating to a cloud-based data warehouse can provide security and governance without consuming more human resources. Despite initial concerns, it is widely believed that cloud-based services are almost certainly more secure than custom solutions. An effective modern data warehouse will support multi-level, role-based access control (RBAC). This will protect the confidentiality of the data by ensuring that the user is only allowed to view the data that is granted access.
In addition, many cloud computing data warehouse services provide always-on data encryption and connectivity provided by AWS Private Link to avoid data transfer over the public Internet. This preserves the integrity of corporate data by ensuring that corporate data is not compromised or modified.
