MIT Technology Review: Diversity of Big Data Sources Creates Big Security Challenges

According to Oracle’s Neil Mendelson, many companies today make a key mistake in setting up their big data environments.

“In an effort to gain insights and drive business growth, companies can too often overlook or underestimate the challenge of securing information in a new and unfamiliar environment,” says Mendelson, vice president for big data and advanced analytics at Oracle. That lack of attention to big data security requirements can, of course, leave the organization open to attacks from any number of unknown sources. 

Other evolving circumstances also contribute to a wide range of security-related risks, hurdles, and potential pitfalls associated with big data. As the Cloud Security Alliance, an industry group, notes: “Large-scale cloud infrastructures, diversity of data sources and formats, the streaming nature of data acquisition, and high-volume inter-cloud migration all create unique security vulnerabilities.”

Discover the Cloud Advantage for Databases

On June 16, 2011, we’re starting our webcast series Discover the Cloud Advantage for Databases with “Database Consolidation: Better Data Security at Lower Cost”. More and more organizations are consolidating their databases and taking advantage of private cloud computing environments to drive down IT costs. But since two thirds of sensitive data in most organizations resides in databases, did you know that consolidation can also improve data security and regulatory compliance? 

In this session, you will learn: 

  • How replacing costly and insecure database silos and adopting a database defense-in-depth strategy will help safeguard all your mission critical enterprise data. 
  • About the new Oracle Database Firewall, which offers unprecedented capabilities to monitor database traffic and block threats before they even reach your databases.
We’re also offering these additional free webcasts in the series, so sign up now.
