Challenge: While the information gleaned from big data can do wonders for many organizations, it is quite harmful if it ends up in the hands of malicious hackers.
Preventing privacy disclosures, both accidental and intentional, is critical; these breaches happen more often than one would care to admit.
Solution: In order to ensure user privacy, the Cloud Security Alliance recommends creating and implementing a number of best practices. Helpful technologies and techniques include:
- Encryption of data at rest
- Access control
- Authorization mechanisms
- Logging access policies
- Data sharing protection
