Big data has been widely used in people's production and life, providing a strong technical support for the prosperity and development of all walks of life. Big data, while providing convenience for computers, also poses a potential threat to network systems and raises big data It is imperative to analyze the potential threats to big data security and formulate appropriate precautionary measures. Big data security problems mainly in the following three aspects: the data in the transmission process of data security problems; data in the process of security problems arising; the user lost effective control of personal data. So how to control and handle these processes that create potential safety issues will be the key to our discussion.

Edge Computing With the advent of the 5G era becoming more and more important, today's IoT has begun to evolve into the rapid development of everything-connected, augmented reality (AR), online cloud games, smart cities, environmental monitoring and smart agriculture. The number of network edge devices The rapid increase in cloud computing as the core of centralized data processing technology can not adapt to the explosive growth of the massive edge of the data, the high real-time processing of edge devices makes large amounts of data online transmission, resulting in increased network load and energy consumption, at the same time Also because of network transmission in the process of network security problems. Each scholar can address their respective research fields and talk about solutions or opinions on related issues.

This special issue aims to bridge the gap in existing literature by bringing together articles from across the spectrum of Big Data and Computing Security research, collating the latest research and thinking in the field.
