Cryptography & data security: protecting the data while reducing cost in distributed systems
Using cryptography for data protection is not exclusively reserved for “secure chats” and financial products. Modern cryptographic tools help to comply with the regulations and laws, help to improve control over the infrastructure, to prevent data leakages, and to reduce the risk of incidents. Eugene talked about the way modern cryptographic tools allow technology companies to reduce the security budget and to remain protected at the same time.
Protecting sensitive data in modern multi-component systems
A talk for solution architects and technical leads, in which we took a deep look into data lifecycle, risk, trust, and how they affect security architecture, encryption, and key management techniques. We illustrated typical SDL patterns: narrowing trust, monitoring intrusions, zero knowledge architectures, distributing trust. The goal of the talk was to provide a general thinking framework and enough ideas about tools for senior engineers for them to be able to plan their solutions securely, in relation to the sensitive data inside.
