I’ve been having a lot of conversations with security professionals about big data security analytics. In some cases, I present to a large audience or I’m on the phone with a single CISO in others.
While big data security analytics content varies from discussion to discussion, I consistently come across a lot of misunderstanding around the topic as a whole. This is understandable since “big data” is really a marketing term that the industry has all but coopted. Worse yet, security vendors have glue the mystery of “big data” and, the misconceptions of security analytics, and marketing hype together. No wonder why security professionals remain confused!
