Data-Centric Security Rules

I just attended the Cybersecurity Summit in Dallas for the first time. I spoke a little on a small panel with a couple of customers about Voltage SecureData and Format Preserving Encryption (FPE).

Interviews with Brilliant People on Hadoop and the Future of Big Data Tech

I have been doing some very cool interviews with brilliant people, usually at events like Strata + Hadoop World and Hadoop Summit. The intention is to use their brilliant thoughts so that I don’t have to take the extra time to come up with my own. Not to mention I get the bonus of learning new things, and getting the unique perspectives of folks who really know their stuff.
