re: The Big Data Is The New Normal
As the article mentions, there is currently a lack of GǣstockGǥ security in big data
platforms.

However, although inherent security is lacking, security vendors now provide many
options to protect big data, from coarse grained approaches, such as volume or
file encryption, to fine grained methods such as masking and Vaultless Tokenization. Much in the same way that the platforms themselves can be assembled in different configurations, each security approach may have particular usefulness for a particular customized big data model. For example, in a storage model, you may only require coarse grained security, while a data access model may require very fine grained security with options to expose business intelligence.

Obviously, in cases such as the ones the article describes with Gǣroll-their-ownGǥ
infrastructure, itGs necessary to consider that each Gǣbuilding blockGǥ may require a different security method, in order to ensure that the data is protected throughout the environment, and not just in one or two of the components. This can, and does, create issues where developers fail to consider (or are not realistically able to foresee) what may be coming down the road in this exploding new field. So for many, it is difficult to reconcile this building block database with comprehensive data security, and this most likely plays a large part in why security has thus far been lacking.

But despite the lack of GǣstockGǥ security in big data environments, there is hope.
Data security vendors have been keen to develop new solutions to meet these
challenges, and continue to innovate along with this exciting, and ever-expanding new platform. IGm sure Adrian will have plenty to say on this subject in the coming weeks.

re: The Big Data Is The New Normal
Thanks, Adrian.

The term Big Data is so often bandied about rendering into buzzword Hall of Fame territory. I find that so many focus on the "Big" part of the phrase and don't consider the "4 Vs" if you will (Volume, Velocity, Variety, and Veracity) as a whole.

Wanted to share real quick a video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v... I saw that not only speaks to IT's role in Big Data initiatives G but also delivers it via at least 8 sci-fi references. The video is based of research but talks more about ways to approach and plan for new large data projects.
