10 Point Hadoop Security Audit

Hadoop-powered Big Data infrastructure provides an incredible opportunity to create a new generation of insight. Collecting, analysing and making decisions based on analysis of massive amounts of data sets from various sources is very powerful, but also creates risks.

The three main security and data governance Hadoop risks



What does this risk mean for organisations?

A weakness in your Hadoop cluster leads to a weakness in your overall IT security. Access control, privacy restrictions, regulatory requirements such as GPDR mean that without robust security controls and protocols, ‘Big Data can become a Big Problem’. As a result, it is imperative that any Hadoop weaknesses are quickly identified and closed off.
