Session Outline

Role-based access control (RBAC) has long been the standard for controlling who has access to what data. However, with data environments becoming more fast-paced  and complex, RBAC is becoming an increasingly risky choice. Its inability to scale leaves organisations with access controls that are either overly restrictive or permissive – meaning data is either inaccessible to those who need it, or broadly accessible even to those who should not see it, which can serious security implications.

Key Takeaways

  • The key to ensuring the right people can access the right data when they need it is a dynamic, automated solution namely ABAC or attribute-based access control.. In this talk, we’ll:
  •  Discuss the three pillars of protecting customer data in the cloud: data discovery, security, and monitoring
  •  Dive into why RBAC is no longer fit for protecting the modern customer or meeting the exponential growth of data touchpoints
  • Show you why attribute-based access control (ABAC) is superior and how to get started implementing it in a modern Lakehouse environment
