By now, we’re all aware of the competitive value of our data. You swim in a sea of it; you collect a mountain of it, with volume, variety, and velocity. What are your responsibilities with respect to this data? Why should anyone trust you with it? How can you share it and still meet your governance mandates? If you are pursuing a big data strategy, you need a framework for privacy, security, data sharing, and governance that people are willing to trust. Informed by the 7 Foundational Principles of Privacy by Design, PHEMI has implemented this framework as Zero Trust Data, a new approach to privacy, data sharing, and governance.
PHEMI’s Zero Trust Data framework involves several key innovations:
In PHEMI’s Zero Trust Data strategy, users are decoupled from data. Decoupling data description from user description allows data to remain stable—data should never change—while personnel, roles, departments, authorizations, and even organizations can freely change without disrupting the implementation. Extensible metadata future-proofs the implementation. This makes change, even pervasive and frequent change, much easier to manage.
In many cases, the path that organizations take to implement big data starts by piecing together a stack of open-source Hadoop components. And then— what next? When embarking on a big data project, it is important for organizations to understand exactly what they are getting into, pay attention to the challenges that have derailed others’ projects, and monitor the impact on total cost of ownership (TCO).View all White Papers
