Security Intelligence with Big Data: A Top Use Case
Security intelligence with big data is the ability to lower risk, detect fraud and monitor cyber security in real time. Organizations can augment and enhance cyber security and intelligence analysis platforms with big data technologies to process and analyze new types (e.g. social media, emails, sensors, Telco) and sources of under-leveraged data to significantly improve intelligence, security and law enforcement insight. Sandy Bird, chief technology officer of IBM’s security systems division, gave an overview of security intelligence, which is one of the top five use cases for big data. He discussed some key questions an organization should consider, how the threat landscape has changed in recent years, and how organizations are using big data to address cyber security challenges.
