Ok, so you've got a Big Data project and are eager to jump in. First… take a deep breath.
Now before you start with the data crunching, let's talk security.
There are a few things you want to consider.
First, Make sure your security controls meet or exceed the necessary compliance requirements
Second, understand what data you'll be storing. Do you need email addresses, credit card histories, health records, etc… for your project?
Next, Be sure the security protocols you implement don't negatively impact performance and response time. Remember, Big Data is about velocity.
Finally, Make sure access to the data is available on a need to know basis only.
