BIG DATASeptember 20, 2012
The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) has initiated a Big Data Working Group to develop best practices for privacy and security solutions, particularly in government, healthcare and e-commerce sectors, Integration Developer News reports. The CSA’s charter document notes “traditional security mechanisms, which are tailored to securing small-scale static—as opposed to streaming—data are inadequate” for Big Data. In addition to developing Big Data security and privacy best practices, the group aims to help industry and government adopt best practices; create coordination efforts between organizations to develop standards; speed up efforts to research privacy and security solutions, and draft research proposals for joint government and industry funding, the report states.
