Security and Data Management

Just thinking about how little has been done regarding the overlap in enteprise data management and data security. Why is it that these two disciplines are still management very separately from each other.

Perhaps that is what both Symantec and EMC are doing with their recent acquisitions?

Or, maybe it is just as simple as the fact that security cuts across everything, so as a discipline, it is one of the most diverse topics you can possibly think of. You have physical security, network security, identity management etc etc. So it really isn't a surprise that as enterprise data management is still kind of young, with MDM and data lineage deployments just now starting to take off, the overlay of how security of structured data is a little behind.

Ack. It's late and I am rambling. check back in with y'all later.

btw, this week I am in lovely Orlando Florida at the Data Governance Conference. So I will send you all my thoughts while I have them.

Also, a belated Happy Thanksgiving to all of my U.S. readers. And if those of you in the U.K. feel left out, then Happy Guy Hawkes day. :)
