When: Wednesday, June 25, from 3:15 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Organizations must balance the use of Big Data to drive business while protecting privacy and personal identifiable information (PII), maintaining compliance and minimizing the risks of exposure of legally protected or regulated data covered by PCI Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the like. A perimeter-based or volume-encryption approach to data security is no longer sufficient, especially for enterprises that are leveraging Apache Hadoop alongside relational database management systems and other data platforms. This session will cover best practices for comprehensive security for Big Data in the enterprise.
