Description of the special session/workshop

Snowball of big data is rushing down a mountain gaining speed and volume, companies are trying to keep up with it. And down they go, completely forgetting to put on masks, helmets, gloves and sometimes even skis. Without these, it’s terribly easy to never make it down in one piece. And putting on all the precaution measures at a high speed can be too late or too difficult. Prioritizing big data security low and putting it off till later stages of big data adoption projects isn’t always a smart move. People don’t say “Security’s first” for no reason. At the same time, we admit that ensuring big data security comes with its concerns and challenges, which is why it is more than helpful to get acquainted with them. Problems with security pose serious threats to any system, which is why it’s crucial to know your gaps. Here, our big data consulting experts cover the most vicious security challenges that big data has in stock:

  • Vulnerability to fake data generation
  • Potential presence of untrusted mappers
  • Troubles of cryptographic protection
  • Possibility of sensitive information mining
  • Struggles of granular access control
  • Data provenance difficulties
  • High speed of NoSQL databases’ evolution and lack of security focus
  • Absent security audits
