IBM Security Guardium Data Protection Foundations
IBM Security® Guardium® Data Protection (Guardium) supports a zero trust approach to security. It discovers and classifies sensitive data from across an enterprise, providing real time data activity monitoring and advanced user behavior analytics to help discover unusual activity around sensitive data.
Guardium provides a broad range of data security and protection capabilities that can protect sensitive and regulated data across environments and platforms. This course provides the foundational level processes, procedures, and practices necessary to configure Guardium to monitor and protect sensitive data. Hands-on exercises reinforce the skills learned.
