IT Security Forum attendees will have the opportunity to hear Dr. Flavio Villanustre present on “Security & Privacy in a Big Data World.” Dr. Villanustre is the VP of Infrastructure and Security for LexisNexis Risk Solutions.
Big Data is here to stay. While very few people would hesitate to highlight the value that Big Data represents to organizations and society, the benefits of Big Data are not exempt of risks. The distributed nature of the storage and processing environments of big data engines, such as Apache Hadoop and the LexisNexis HPCC Systems platform, combined with the need for trans disciplinary collaboration (data analysts, mathematicians, business experts and software developers, all working together) can create situations where certain contents could be exposed, beyond the intention and policies of the organizations.
Tokenization, an effective technique while considering standalone datasets, can be trivially reverted given appropriate additional data sources, as demonstrated by researchers in 2008, in connection with the Netflix Prize dataset. Moreover, the fact that public cloud environments are sometimes considered, in the course of Big Data implementations, introduces additional risk factors that can be difficult to mitigate. During this presentation, we’ll cover the different risks associated with Big Data, and explore the methodologies and techniques used to mitigate them effectively.
