Session Overview

Cloud Data Lake Security: Today and Beyond | Shamir Charania

In this presentation, we will discuss the security considerations of using data lakes within the public cloud.

  • How should security be approached within this paradigm?
  • What is the responsibility of the cloud consumer vs the cloud provider?
  • What patterns are typically being used and what do those trade-offs mean for enterprise security?

We will also explore some of the new ideas emerging in this space, particularly as it relates to the data economy.

About the Group

Whether you have a depth of knowledge in a certain area that you want to share or are looking to branch out and learn new aspects of the Azure stack, this is the group for you.

More than learning, the Azure Analytics User Groups is a great place to find professionals in the industry. For those new to the industry (like students), this user group is the easiest and best way to get a good introduction to Azure.

We will discuss the use and direction of tools such as:

  • Azure SQL
  • Azure Synapse (formerly Azure SQL DW)
  • Azure Analysis Services
  • Data Factory
  • Azure Databricks
  • Azure storage
  • Azure DevOps
  • Power BI

The discussion is not limited to these products and will change over time.
