Data Security: Meeting the Challenge in a Data-Centric World

New track announced at CHI’s Bio-IT World Conference & Expo on April 29-May 1, 2014, Boston, MA - a premier event showcasing IT apps for life sciences with 2500+ attendees from 30+ countries.

PRLog - Feb. 3, 2014 - NEEDHAM, Mass. -- Next-generation sequencing and other technological advances have produced faster and greater data for life scientists than ever before. This treasure trove, however, carries new responsibilities and risks. How can researchers protect sensitive information while ensuring reliable, economical storage and convenient access by the appropriate people? What must they consider about their data, its users, potential threats to it and financial and efficiency costs before they even decide how to protect it?

Bio-IT World 2014's Inaugural Data Security conference explores these challenges, the security levels necessary for different biological research data sources, tradeoffs of collaboration vs. privacy and processes and mechanisms that prevent data misuse and identify threat risks for both cloud-based systems and traditional computing.

- Sustaining collaborations in secure environments
- Securing the cloud for healthcare
- Ensuring genomic privacy and security
- Company security strategies.
