‘Big data’ is the latest IT buzzword. Organisations are collecting, storing, using and sharing ever greater amounts of data. Data sits in multiple locations – mobile devices, social media, the cloud. But what is ‘Big Data’ and what does it mean for information security strategy and tactics? Is it a threat, an opportunity or both? How should information security policies adapt to deal with ‘Big Data’? How should organisations protect vast silos of data? How can ‘Big Data’, security analytics and intelligence led approaches be used to advance information security through threat discovery and remediation? This session will cut through the hype of ‘Big data’ and tell you what you really need to know. You will:

  • Define ‘Big Data’ and understand its implications for information security
  • Evaluate the risks of ‘Big Data’ and how to manage them
  • Discover how to leverage ‘Big Data’ analytics to gain business intelligence and detect fraud, threats and breaches
  • Find out how to manage privacy concerns around ‘Big Data’ and across geographical boundaries
