Big Data is truly a challenge that stretches the boundaries of the enterprise.
According to a new report from the Information Security Forum (The Information Security Forum [ISF] is an independent, not for profit association of leading organisations from around the World. It is dedicated to investigating, clarifying and resolving key issues in cyber, information security and risk management), data volumes are growing at an alarming rate - around 2.5 million terabytes every day.
From structured and unstructured data within the network of enterprise PCs and servers to the consumer devices - smart phones, laptops and removable storage devices that introduce new data management challenges - organizations are easily overwhelmed by the questions posed by Big Data:
- What does Big Data look like, and where can it be found?
- How can we leverage Big Data to improve operational efficiencies?
- How do we address the inherent security concerns - and, in fact, use Big Data analytics to improve our security posture?
- What new challenges - and opportunities - are posed by mobility?
In this session, leading experts in Big Data will define the challenges and offer hands-on advice for how to tackle them.
Steve Durbin, Global VP of the ISF, will set the stage with a Big Data overview, offering context on today's challenges, as well as introducing topics such as:
- The impact of cyber crime;
- Privacy concerns;
- The skills shortage - do we need data scientists to manage Big Data?
