When Big Data Changed the World We Secure
Brian Fitzgerald, Vice President, RSA The Security Division of EMC
Information security professionals have always had to juggle security concerns against business growth needs. But now data is king across all industries and never before have we been tasked with securing so much data in so many places. it is daunting to even consider the bulk of what we keep and the repercussions if it is leaked or lost. in this insightful keynote address, Mr. Fitzgerald will examine how the old rules in security no longer apply and why, ultimately, Big data will be a savior to the field. He will commiserate about the “good- ole-days” of security and what it means to keep so much data for so long. Whether utilizing data in the cloud or a cluster, how will Big data deliver on its promise to revolutionize threat detection and hacker attacks? can we keep data safe by sharing more of it? mr. Fitzgerald will discuss this and possible future applications. Big data is here to stay – and how you utilize it will determine if it is a blessing or curse for security.
