CeBIT Global Conferences 2013: Sharing Big Data

Natalya Kaspersky and Eddy Willems discuss chances and challenges for businesses – live on Center Stage

In the years to come processing, storage and distribution of large volumes of data will continue to pose a challenge for businesses and providers of IT infrastructures. According to the latest IDC study (Big Data 2012) many organizations are only beginning to address the issue and still in the process of evaluating possible ways of implementation. Cost- and resource efficient solutions for Big Data technologies offer a lot of potential for businesses. What should organizations pay particular attention to during this phase? Natalya Kaspersky, CEO at InfoWatch Group and Eddy Willems, Global Security Officer at G Data Software AG will discuss chances, risks and the optimal strategy for organizations.


“Cloud-based solutions offer a great deal of flexibility for businesses. Increased efficiency and reduction in total cost gives organizations is a significant competitive edge. This is especially true for global organizations. Given the current increase in data volume there hardly seems to be an alternative to Big Data and cloud technologies”, says Eddy Willems, Global Security Officer & Security Evangelist, G Data Software AG. „During the implementation process any organization should also analyze potential weaknesses and at the same time make sure that their data is thoroughly protected.”




Natalya Kaspersky, CEO at InfoWatch Group: “Recent analytical researches show the increasing demand for Cloud services and the steady growth of Big Data in companies. But still the main challenge in the cloud is securing clients’ data as it is difficult to define the responsible side. The drawback is that cloud providers do not take the responsibility for security of the data clients give outto the cloud. And the challenge is not overcome at the moment.”

Cloud: Sharing Big Data
Many companies, while sympathetic to the idea of sharing in principle, are reluctant to share their internal data with third parties on account of security and privacy concerns. What options do companies wishing to make intelligent use of their data by sharing them with third parties actually have, particularly in today’s increasingly privacy conscious environment? What approaches have been tried so far, and how have they worked out?
