Big Data is a very huge volume of data which is beyond the storage capacity and processing capability of traditional system. The volume of data is increasing at exponential rate. Therefore, there is the need of such mechanism to store and process such high volume of data. The impressiveness of the Big data lies with its major applicability to almost all industries. Therefore, it represents both, the tremendous opportunities and complex challenges. Such omnipotent eminence leads to the privacy and security related challenges to the big data. Nowadays, security of big data is mainly focused by every organization because it contains a lot of sensitive data and useful information for taking decisions. The hostile nature of digital data itself has certain inherited security challenges. The aim of Big data security is to identify security issues and to find the better solution for handling security challenges. The observation and analysis of different security mechanism related to the issues of big data and their solutions are focused in this chapter.
