Session Title | NoSQL database security.

In a different way of the relational databases. NoSQL is being non-relational, distributed and open-source. Not only can NoSQL systems handle both structured and unstructured data, but they can also process unstructured Big Data quickly.

The talk is going to focus on the following points:

1. History of NoSQL and Why NoSQL databases?

2. What is the difference between relational database and NoSQL

3. The security issues in for databases ex: authentication, access control, privacy …

4. How the security issues were handled in NoSQL databases and the difference between them and relation-databases

5. The security challenges in NoSQL databases
