Big Data Processing: Security and Scalability Challenges

The processing of large amonts of data requires significant computing power and scalable architectures. This trend makes the use of Cloud computing and off-premises data centres particularly attractive, but exposes companies to the risk of data theft. This is a key challenge toward exploiting public Clouds, as data represents for many companies their most valuable asset. In this talk, we will discuss about mechanisms to ensure secure and privacy-preserving Big Data processing on computing architectures supporting horizontal and vertical scalability.
