Big Data – Bigger Risks?

Securing Your Smart Information Infrastructure
Big Data technologies were invented to store and rapidly process the vast amount of data available today into useful “Smart” Information. What is common across these technologies is that their initial aims are focused on data processing capabilities rather than security and compliance. One particular concern is the lack of control over identity and access especially in the area of administration. This was fine when the application of the tools was confined to experimental or small scale usage. Now that they are being widely deployed for commercial purposes this is no longer satisfactory.
Big Data technologies need to be managed and secured in the same way as the other components in the IT infrastructure.
In this KuppingerCole Webinar you will hear about:
- Big Data and Smart Information
- How Big Data technologies are changing the risk landscape.
- Why identity and access management is critical to managing these risks.
In the first part of this webinar, Mike Small, Senior Analyst at KuppingerCole, will describe the challenge that Big Data technologies poses to organizations. He will describe how Big Data technologies change the risk landscape, and how knowing who has access to what, is a key requirement to managing risk. He will describe identity and access management in the context of Big Data technologies and how it is important to address these risks.
In the second part, Barry Scott, CTO EMEA from Centrify will describe their approach to Big Data Security and how they can enable you to mitigate risks and increase security in your Big Data environments.
Centrify delivers Zero Trust Security through the power of Next-Gen Access. Centrify verifies every user, their devices, and limits access and privilege. Centrify’s Next-Gen Access is the only industry-recognized solution that uniquely converges Identity-as-a Service (IDaaS), enterprise mobility management (EMM) and privileged access management (PAM).
With a huge amount of data around, cloud migration is the ideal solution today. A necessary stage in migrating data to the cloud is putting it in order. This is particularly important when it comes to unstructured, so-called dark data: files and documents that are undermanaged (excel files of budget estimates, PDFs containing important patents, Word documents containing personal employee or customer information), in general the data that is not managed in an orderly fashion such as structured database which is easily governed. Usually, this kind of data that tends to be misplaced, misused, abandoned, hacked, or leaked, in the cloud and local server repositories putting enterprises at risk.
Blockchain is still on everyone’s lips and the 2019 can be the year when large enterprises finally embrace the distributed ledger technology. KuppingerCole's inaugural blockchain-themed event will go beyond the hype and will present you real use cases and applications for your enterprise. Blockchain Enterprise Days (#BeDays19) will take place on September 18-19, 2019 in Frankfurt, Germany.
