The advent of big data has given birth to numerous innovative life-enhancing applications, but the big data is often called as a double-edged sword due to the increased privacy and security threats. Such threats, if unaddressed, will become deadly barriers to the achievement of big opportunities and success anticipated in the big data industry because they may arise at any part of the life cycle of the big data.

In this talk, I will describe my research which addressed various privacy and security issues in the big data life cycle: acquisition, storage, provisioning, and consumption. More specifically, I will briefly present how various types of data can be protected in their acquisition and consumption phases of the life cycle, and subsequently, I will introduce the theoretic foundations of the presented research. Finally, I will present how to make large-scale data trading accountable against dishonest users for the provisioning phase of big data, and this talk will be concluded with my future research agenda briefing.

Taeho Jung is a Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science at Illinois Institute of Technology.
