Presenter Profile

NuCypher is a security and encryption platform for big data. Our state-of-the-art protection follows data wherever it goes. Flexible, powerful, and secure – it’s body armor for your data.


Body Armor for Big Data

The advent of big data and cloud technologies presents a new set of security challenges that traditional tools are ill-equipped to address.

Whether computing in isolated, controlled networks or distributed, ubiquitous environments, no network is truly secure. Modern enterprises must architect their systems under the assumption that any component can be compromised at any time. Responsible enterprises must act as if they’ve already been compromised and adopt a zero-trust security model.

By embedding access policies directly into encryption, NuCypher’s data-centric encryption follows data wherever it goes: across platforms (Hadoop, Kafka, Spark) and between on-premises and cloud environments.

What You’ll Learn

  • Move big data storage and compute to the cloud, securely and compliantly.
  • Enable secure, granular inter- and cross-organizational sharing of data based on existing identity management infrastructures like AD and LDAP.
  • Bring big data projects into compliance with internal security policies and regulatory requirements, including PCI, HIPAA, NY DFS Rule 500, PSD2, and GDPR.
