This IDC study examines a broad range of big data projects to help CIOs, CISOs, and IT managers identify how security can be applied to business analytics initiatives with different goals. The study provides the various approaches that CISOs employed to address data security and compliance challenges within clustered data analytics environments.
"If security professionals engage the key stakeholders at the start of most big data business analytics projects, applying security controls at every level of a big data environment is achievable. Any shortcuts taken with security result in technical debt and risks that may last for many years." — Robert Westervelt, research manager and lead of IDC's Data Security practice
