Who is this presentation for?

  • CIOs, CISOs, architects, and security, risk, and compliance managers

Prerequisite knowledge

  • Familiarity with big data platforms
  • A basic understanding of security, privacy, governance principles

What you'll learn

  • Learn best practices for managing security and risk in big data environments spanning on-premises and hybrid- and multicloud deployments


Businesses and government organizations risk serious consequences if they fail to protect sensitive information. Big data and data lakes raise the stakes by compiling much more data, which increases the value both to authorized and unauthorized people. While security and governance tools on the market are finally beginning to mature, few offer capabilities that can span environments. You will need an enterprise-class framework to secure, govern, and manage data everywhere.

As you migrate to hybrid-cloud and even multicloud strategies, this challenge becomes even harder. A fragmented approach for each environment may bring some measure of safety but is also be extremely hard to implement and maintain consistently. Passing compliance audits when data lives in multiple platforms and locations may be difficult or even impossible, which can entirely scuttle your big data initiatives.

Nikki Rouda shares unbiased best practices, specific approaches, policies, and utilities to ensure your data is under control everywhere, drawing on real-world examples to illustrate how others have led the way.
