The big data challenge: What's in store for NoSQL security
In the rush to capitalize on big data, many companies forget that developing an ecosystem of structured and unstructured data means higher risk of loss and exposure. What technologies should be in place to enforce NoSQL security controls on-premises and in the cloud? Adrian Lane explores these issues in this month's cover story. We also report on IT security's role in cyberinsurance, as organizations seek to transfer risk and hedge their losses in an immature market with complex policies. Finally, we look at FedRamp 2.0 and its potential ramifications as a far-reaching model for cloud security standards, just months after the June deadline for compliance with the government program. And columnist Marcus Ranum interviews Columbia University's Joel Rosenblatt about his latest projects with security metrics and how their use can benefit security programs.
