Information security governance is an important aspects for all organizations. Given the crucial importance of IT systems and the increasing range of threats these systems are facing, there is an increasing interest on the topic. On the other hand, Big Data environments are also beginning to be more pervasive as IT is increasing its importance for organizations worldwide. In order to better know which aspects are the most important for the intersection of Big Data and information security governance, authors present in this paper a systematic mapping on this topic. Authors illustrate challenges and gaps concerning the topic and clarify these challenges by means of a classification of the environments they take place, the security risk spectrums they concern, and the security governance measures they take to mitigate them; by providing solutions as in a framework, model, software or tool, wherever possible. Results are expected to be useful for IT security professionals and information systems practitioners as a whole.
