The Elephant in the Cloud: Bring True Cloud Economics to Hadoop/BigInsights

The massive computing and storage resources that are needed to support big data deployments in general, and Hadoop in particular, make cloud environments, public and private, an ideal fit.

Encrypt Your Data in the Cloud

Keeping data private and secure has always been a business imperative for data privacy and regulatory compliance reasons, and as businesses seriously consider migrating to the cloud, data security is one of the most significant concerns.

In our presentation we will discuss the shared responsibility module, review the pros and cons of current approaches to cloud data security, and discuss new and emerging technologies such as split-key encryption and partially homomorphic key encryption that enables organizations to maintain data privacy in a public cloud environment.
