By leveraging the terabytes of information and data feeds that too frequently overwhelm organizations' security departments, cyber criminals already have gained entry into many an organization's network, exfiltrating critical data that likely could bring victimized entities to their knees. Many executive leaders still have yet to implement the best practices, strategies, policies and tools that could help their enterprises. Indeed, some still try to make sense of anomalous behavior happening on their networks with too few resources, little internal expertise and no increases in funding. On top of this, the amount of critical data itself is accumulating exponentially. But, no doubt, Big Data is here to stay and the many issues surrounding its security and how to harness it to address risk management needs are only growing. We explore the relevant problems around safeguarding some data and enlisting segments of other data to thwart today's bad guys, providing practical steps on how to embrace Big Data of all types and how well-thought-out strategies can enrich existing security programs.
