Big data refers to the large set of complex digital data, which is unstructured. This data includes confidential information that is used by organizations to gain insights and hence the security of this data has become important for every organization. Security is a process and not a product; thus, big data security can be referred to as a proactive and protective approach for managing digital privacy. Big data security solutions are used to prevent unauthorized access to effectively protect organizational data.
