Security and Privacy for Big Data

Being able to process large amounts of data in a timely manner is not enough to develop secure big data solutions while complying with new EU regulations like GDPR. In 2018, every successful implementation must - by law - meet requirements regarding security and data protection. Non-compliance will lead to heavy fines.
