It is essential for an organization to know before involving themselves in cloud computing and big data, what are the key security requirements for applications and data processing. Big data and cloud computing are integrated together in practice. Cloud computing offers massive storage, high computation power, and distributed capability to support processing of big data. In such an integrated environment the security and privacy concerns involved in both technologies become combined.
This book discusses these security and privacy issues in detail and provides necessary insights into cloud computing and big data integration. It will be useful in enhancing the body of knowledge concerning innovative technologies offered by the research community in the area of cloud computing and big data. Readers can get a better understanding of the basics of cloud computing, big data, and security mitigation techniques to deal with current challenges as well as future research opportunities.
