Big Data – Bigger Risks?
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Thursday, October 13, 2016 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
Organizations are using Big Data to better understand their customers, to improve their products and to optimize their operations. However, Big Data technologies were conceived and designed for scalability and performance rather than security. You need to take steps to secure 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 is redefining the legacy approach to Privileged Access Management by delivering cloud-ready Zero Trust Privilege to secure modern enterprise use cases. Zero Trust Privilege mandates a “never trust, always verify, enforce least privilege” approach. Centrify Zero Trust Privilege helps customers grant least privilege access based on verifying who is requesting access, the context of the request, and the risk of the access environment.
