(Big) Data Security: Protecting Information at the Source
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Thursday, June 01, 2017 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am ET, 7:00am PT
With the growing adoption of cloud computing, Big Data or open APIs, managing, securing and sharing massive amounts of digital data across heterogeneous and increasingly interconnected infrastructures is becoming increasingly difficult. From file servers to relational databases and big data frameworks, to the Internet of Things and entire API ecosystems – each data model imposes its own security controls and separate technology stack for enforcing them.
An alternative approach – data-centric security – is in fact nothing new and quite simple in theory: instead of managing access to each individual infrastructure, just focus on protecting the data itself, regardless of its type and location. However, practical implementations of this concept depend heavily on two things: standards and policies. A solution that manages to successfully implement them in a unified, flexible and open manner, could surely be able to bring data security to a new level.
In this KuppingerCole webinar, you will learn about:
- Current challenges and trends that shape modern data protection solutions;
- Improving business agility and reducing complexity by redesigning traditional security models;
- Hardening against security breaches and ensuring GDPR compliance with dynamic Attribute-Based Access Control;
- Implementing policy-based security and privacy controls for Big Data infrastructures.
In the first part of the webinar, Alexei Balaganski, Lead Analyst at KuppingerCole, will present an overview of the security and compliance challenges of managing access to sensitive data across heterogeneous IT infrastructures. He will talk about the crucial role of standards in fighting complexity and improving the flexibility of access management.
In the second part, Gerry Gebel, Vice President of Business Development at Axiomatics, Inc., will present a deeper insight into the benefits and challenges of applying standard-based ABAC security and privacy controls to Big Data frameworks like Hadoop and will introduce his company’s new solution implementing this technology.
Axiomatics provides externalized authorization management for databases, Big Data, applications and APIs. Our Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC) solutions are ideal for enterprises and government agencies moving away from role-based frameworks, and into more context-aware policy-based access control models. The Axiomatics authorization suite is ideal for these organizations that must securely share information while complying with complex and ever-evolving regulations.
To survive the fierce market competition in the era of Digital Transformation, businesses strive to be as agile as possible, to quickly adjust to constantly changing customer demands, industry regulations and modern technologies. Driven by cloud transformation and digitalization, modern companies are becoming increasingly open and interconnected, with massive numbers of people, devices and applications forming millions of relationships across geographically and technologically diverse environments.
Come to the place where the Digital Transformation is happening. The European Identity & Cloud Conference, held from May 15-18, 2018, offers a mixture of best practice discussions, visionary presentations, and networking opportunities with a future-oriented community. More than 800 thought leaders, leading vendors, analysts, executives, and end-users get together in Munich to be inspired by a list of world-class speakers.
