You hear about it in the news all the time. A company’s data has been hacked and private information has been compromised. Or, the data is being held for ransom. We call it Ransomware, and it’s not going away.
Certain industries have even more at stake because they deal with classified information, or they store people’s personal or health information. A breach of that kind can be catastrophic.
In addition to these risks, the analysis of health data is valuable to the advancement of science, treatments and cures. This “Big Data” needs to be stored and protected, so it can be used for the good of mankind.
