Big Data Management and Security

9:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Three-day event held at Mudd Hall

Eugene Wu and Suman Jana, Columbia University

TThis three-day course provides a hands-on introduction to data processing with big data, as well as security risks and privacy issues regarding big data systems.

After taking this course, participants will have a broad understanding of the data management lifecycle and the key issues that need to be taken into account when creating a data processing pipeline. This includes the ability to clean and prepare data to be put into big data processing systems, the different architecture decisions when picking a big data processing system, and how to use it for processing and visualizaing large data sets.

Further, participants will learn about the key classes of security and privacy risks that big data systems pose as well as the principles needed to design systems that can mitigate these risks. In addition, participants will learn about the dangers that buggy code poses to big data systems and get hands-on experience in finding and fixing security bugs using automated bug finding tools.
Who Should Attend

Professionals and executives that are interested in managing large amounts of data and the security and privacy implications. We will discuss large scale data management, data privacy, security, and visualization.
