Many tools exist within the Hadoop ecosystem to protect data and secure Hadoop systems at different levels. It can be difficult to sift through these and determine what approach is best when implementing data governance. In this webcast, we briefly outline the options available for data governance in Hadoop today and identify the advantages of protecting data using Accumulo. We present a case study where PHEMI Central uses this approach to realize data governance and access control in a large enterprise that deals with sensitive data.

What you'll learn:

  • The key components of data governance and how they can implemented
  • Why metadata is essential for data governance
  • How this approach can be used to tackle real world scenarios
