Cyber Exposure – The Next Frontier

The attack surface for today’s IT landscape is a far cry from the past. Once focused on protecting traditional data centers, cybersecurity professionals are increasingly guarding a complex litany of modern assets like cloud instances, web-based applications, mobile devices, application containers and more. Failure to appropriately manage the unique characteristics of these technologies as a whole can jeopardize the entire risk management program. Join us for a discussion on how companies can reduce their risk and close their overall cyber exposure gap resulting from today’s challenging attack surfaces.

Dynamic, Fine-Grained Authorization in a Big Data World

Enormous amounts of data is handled in many organizations today. This also means that there is lots of data that shouldn’t get in the wrong hands. Controlling access to data is becoming increasingly more complex in the modern world. On one end data needs to be shared with other organizations, partners and other players in the market. On the other end data needs to be locked down from a security standpoint in order for compliance to be met or to meet other security concerns. In this session we discuss how we can apply dynamic fine grained authorization and data masking to data stored in Hadoop.
