Webinar This Thursday: Turning Your Big Security Data into a Big Advantage

Posted February 21, 2012    Sarah Lieber

What’s Your Strategy for Big Security Data?

The idea of “big data” has technology vendors and customers alike scrambling to come up with ways to manage the limitless amounts of data being generated by apps, API’s, databases, web services, etc. For organizations with aggressive security and compliance requirements, the security data driving today’s modern threat and risk intelligence (assessments, compliance reports, attack and mitigation data, etc.) is ‘big data’ in itself.

In fact, it might be the biggest data in your organization, with regards to its value and impact to operations. It is one thing to collect this data (no small feat, actually), but the real challenge is in making sense of all of this valuable information in an actionable format.

How to Turn Your Big Security Data into a Big Advantage

Join us this Thursday for a live webinar discussing these topics, co-hosted by 451 Research and eEye Digital Security, and learn from eEye how you can begin to leverage your big data to drive a more dynamic security strategy, as well as to hear Andrew Hay from 451 Research discuss how this data is impacting the enterprise today.
