Big Data Redefines Security
Posted: 26 February 2013 | Source: RSA
Welcome to a universe of Big Data, the next wave in Information Technology. Big data has the potential to transform our lives for the better; our health, environment, our livelihood, almost every facet of our daily lives. Big Data is more than just a whole lot of data. It's the ability to extract meaning: to sort through the masses of data elements to find the hidden pattern, the unexpected correlation, the surprising connection. Did you know the volume of information in the world is doubling every two years and less than one percent of the world's data is analyzed, and less than 20 percent of it is protected? Coviello will discuss how Big Data is transforming information security and how an Intelligence-driven security strategy that uses the power of big data analytics will put the advantage of time back on the side of security practitioners enabling them to detect attacks, respond more quickly and reduce attacker dwell time.
