BABAR-IANS AT THE GATE: DATA PROTECTION AT MASSIVE SCALE presented at BlackHatUS 2014

by Davi Ottenheimer,

Summary : We are meant to measure and manage data with more precision than ever before using Big Data. But companies are getting Hadoopy often with little or no consideration of security. Are we taking on too much risk too fast? This session explains how best to handle the looming Big Data risk in any environment. Better predictions and more intelligent decisions are expected from our biggest data sets, yet do we really trust systems we secure the least? And do we really know why "learning" machines continue to make amusing and sometimes tragic mistakes? Infosec is in this game but with Big Data we appear to be waiting on the sidelines. What have we done about emerging vulnerabilities and threats to Hadoop as it leaves many of our traditional data paradigms behind? This presentation, based on the new book "Realities of Big Data Security," takes the audience through an overview of the hardest big data protection problem areas ahead and into our best solutions for the elephantine challenges here today.
