Babar-ians at the Gate: Data Protection at Massive Scale - Davi Ottenheimer
PhishMe: Disrupting Cyber Attack Detection & Response - by the PhishMe Ecosystem

We are meant to measure and manage data with more precision than ever before. Now companies often are getting Hadoopy with little or no consideration of security. Are we taking on too much risk too fast?

This session explains how to best handle looming Big Data risk in any environment. Better predictions and more intelligent decisions are expected, yet can we really trust systems that are secured the least? And do we really know why "learning" machines sometimes make amusing and even tragic mistakes? Infosec is in this game but with the fast pace of Big Data we risk being left on the sidelines. What can be done about emerging vulnerabilities and threats to Hadoop as it leaves many traditional data paradigms behind?

This presentation, based on the new book "The Realities of Securing Big Data" provides an overview of the hardest big data protection problems ahead and the best solutions for the elephantine challenges here today.
