Securely managing the flow of the nation's health data in Kafka

In the health sector we have tons of healthcare information that needs to flow to those who need it, when they need it. While we do have to secure delivery, we also have to secure the access to, and integrity of, these often highly personal and sensitive pieces of information.

In this talk we will explore how we make this work, now that we have set out to use Kafka for storing and moving data. When transitioning from a world largely based on databases, this has profound implications on how we deal with securing the information and how it flows.

Here we are going look into what we have learned about securing our nation's core healthcare data in a system that is becoming truly distributed and highly available.
