Real-Time Big Data Security Analytics for Incident Detection

I’ve spent the last year or so doing research on the burgeoning field of big data security analytics. Based upon the time I’ve spent on this topic, I’m convinced that CISOs are looking for immediate help with incident detection, so they will likely focus on real-time big data analytics investments in 2014.

What do I mean by real-time big data security analytics? Think stream processing of data packets, network flows, and metadata looking for anomalous/suspicious network activities that provides strong indication of a security incident in progress. A multitude of vendors including ISC8, 21CT, Click Security, Hexis Cyber Solutions, IBM, Lancope, LogRhythm, Netskope, RSA Security, SAIC, and Solera Networks (and others) play in this space.

The Intersection of Security Intelligence and Big Data Analytics

It's official, the security industry has jumped on the "big data" bandwagon with both feet. How do I know? Well, I'm participating in a panel discussion on this topic at RSA and I believe there are 2 other sessions on the topic. I guess anyone headed to San Francisco later this month should be prepared to get a big dose of big data.
