Over 90% of the world’s data has been generated in the last few years. Accompanying this rapid growth in data comes exponential risks, as witnessed by the spike in cyber attacks of which no organization seems immune. The financial rewards gained by the perpetuators of cyber attacks is blatant, and this is driving continued attacks on companies containing massive amounts of consumer data. For these companies securing data is only half the battle. The risks can be greater when data is transmitted externally, hence it is critical that organizations know where sensitive data is going, how it is being transmitted, and how it is being handled and stored.

The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) rule looms and will take affect in May 2018, but only a third of companies are on track to be compliant by the due date. GDPR is the most significant change in data privacy regulation in more than 20 years. It represents an extraordinary shift in the way businesses will be expected to operate when they gather, process, maintain, and protect customer data. Any organization that retains information of EU citizens must be in compliance or face huge fines of up to 4% of worldwide turnover.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is here to stay, and Gartner predicts there will be over 26 billion connected devices by 2020. This is driving an explosion of data which offers tremendous opportunity for organizations to gain business value, and Hadoop has emerged as the key component to make sense of the data and realize the maximum value. On the flip side, the surge of new devices has increased the potential for hackers to wreak havoc, and Hadoop has been described as the biggest cybercrime bait ever created.

Inadequate security and dedicated cyber attackers have led enterprise data breaches to increase at an alarming pace. Staggering numbers of affected customers - and financial losses - are sending shock waves through the business world, and creating a sense of urgency around identifying solutions. Finding a way to ward off cyber intruders has become a critical challenge.

In 2015 the size of the digital universe will be tenfold what it was in 2010. Large-scale data breaches are on the rise across all sectors, and enterprise data security initiatives must evolve to address new and growing threats. Consumer transactions, personally identifiable information, customer records, and the like, all flowing together into the Hadoop 'data lake', will enable critical business insights but also means Hadoop installations will be a rich target for cyber-crime.

If you're embarking on Hadoop adoption you know that sensitive customer and corporate data will be in the ecosystem – transactional data, intellectual property, customer files, and more. As Adrian Lane of Securosis has noted, "High quality data produces better analysis results—which is why a key ingredient is sensitive data." Now the question becomes how to keep sensitive data secure as it moves into and beyond Hadoop, and—most importantly—how to protect the data but still make it accessible by many different users with varying analytic needs and ad-hoc processes.

Let's face it, there's unrelenting pressure on IT to enable competitive advantage through new technology and use of data assets‒-but the business is driving initiatives that can push sensitive production data into more and more exposed areas. The key question is 'How can you enable the business to be agile AND take a more proactive, programmatic approach to security at the same time?' With the advanced threats that are pervasive today, it's becoming increasingly dangerous for organizations to deploy new technologies and processes, and then reactively address the implications for data security in the ecosystem. You need a blueprint to reverse this trend in your organization.

Big Data is a trend that has engulfed today's IT industry and one that organizations are struggling to manage. According to IDC, the amount of information created, captured or replicated has exceeded available storage for the first time since 2007, and many organization's are spending far more time looking for information than actually using it. The size of the digital universe this year will be tenfold what it was just five years earlier. Therefore, organizations must find smarter data management approaches that enable them to effectively corral and optimize their data.
