The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) Big Data Working Group recently released a new handbook: The Big Data Security and Privacy Handbook: 100 Best Practices in Big Data Security and Privacy. The handbook includes 10 categories of consideration for the biggest challenges in big data security, including:

  1. Secure Computations in Distributed Programming Frameworks
  2. Security Best Practices for Non-Relational Data Stores
  3. Secure Data Storage and Transaction Logs
  4. Endpoint Input Validation / Filtering
  5. Real-Time Security / Compliance Monitoring
  6. Scalable and Composable Privacy-Preserving Analytics
  7. Cryptographic Technologies for Big Data
  8. Granular Access Control
  9. Granular Audits
  10. Data Provenance

Number 9 in the list--Granular Access Control—is described by CSA as “a tool that can be used to reduce data restriction without violating policies.”

Here's a closer look at this category, where the 10 best practices can also be applied to any system holding critical or otherwise sensitive data.
