GDPR Community Showcase for Apache Ranger and Apache Atlas

GDPR Community Showcase for Apache Ranger and Apache Atlas

Thursday, June 21
9:30 AM - 10:10 AM
Meeting Room 230A

The communities for Apache Atlas and Apache Ranger, which are foundational components for Security and Governance across the Hadoop stack, have spawned a robust industry ecosystem of tools and platforms. Such industry solutions build upon the extensibility offered via open and robust APIs and integration patterns to provide innovative “better together” capabilities. In this talk, we will showcase how the ecosystem of solutions being built by different vendors provide value-added capabilities to address the key aspects of securing and governing your data lakes based on Apache Ranger and Apache Atlas frameworks. The talk will showcase multiple ecosystem demonstrations that will include how to identify, map, and classify personal data, harvest and maintain metadata, track and map the movement of data through your enterprise, and enforce appropriate controls to monitor access and usage of personal data.
Come hear from community partners:
-Balaji Ganesan from Privacera will showcase how Privacera integrates with and leverages Apache Ranger and Apache Atlas features to help with GDPR compliance
-Greg Goldsmith and Jordan Martz from Attunity will showcase how Attunity’s solutions integrate into Apache Atlas to provide robust chain of custody and classifications required for GDPR
-Somil Kulkarni from IBM will demonstrate how IBM Information Governance Catalog integrates with Apache Atlas to exchange metadata to build a connected solution for GDPR compliance that harnesses both open source community enhancements and IBM’s innovations in governance space.
