Big Data has become big business and, as such, it has become a prime objective for cybercrooks, political activists and nation-states that want to get their hands on these ever-expanding repositories of proprietary customer information, intellectual property and government secrets stored in those databases.
In this new ebook from SC Magazine, we speak with a range of experts – including engineers, lawyers, analysts, academics and the CISO of the NSA, which likely has the largest database of all – to glean their insights on the technologies and strategies they are putting in place to guard their treasure troves and prevent both insider incidents – such as another Snowden – and attacks from the outside, whether by criminals after data to sell or nation-states eager for blueprints and infrastructure plans. The key takeaway is that companies must take an active role in understanding what data they use, whether they collect it or purchase it, and how they intend on using it. This whitepaper can aid you in that process. Click here to download this ebook on Big Data.
