The Big Challenge of Big Data: Untangling the Security Conundrum

Presented by

Alex Hanway, Marketing Manager for Encryption at Gemalto

About this talk

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they break many of the traditional security approaches and spark questions like: With massive volumes of data, how are organizations going to ensure that their customer information is safe from people looking to exploit it? Is it possible to adopt big data technologies while demonstrating compliance with industry regulations? Will security get in the way of the analytics tools? How can security apply to different data consumption technologies like Hadoop and NOSQL? Join Gemalto on Thursday, December 1, 2016 as we discuss what’s in store for the ‘big data’ technologies of the future and how security models like encryption can solve the security conundrum.
