Track 12 - April 21 – 23, 2015

Data Security 

Meeting the Challenge in a Data-Centric World

Data security is defined by the processes and mechanisms in place that prevent data misuse and identify threat risks. However, many biological research data sources, from IP to genomic to mobile, require different levels of security. The reality is that it matters not where your data exists, but the ways in which data is accessed. Track 12 addresses security services for both cloud-based systems and traditional computing.
