Using Big Data Analytics to Cut Cybersecurity Breaches



The inability to fully analyze data within an enterprise is now a great problem; as we live in an ever-connected digital world where internal and external cybersecurity threats will continue to evolve daily, and attack will be increasingly sophisticated. 

Therefore, organizations of all sizes need complete visibility into the data across their enterprise. IT teams need the ability to flexibly analyze that data in a meaningful timeframe so they can detect advanced threats quickly, identify the impact and reduce the associated risk.

MeriTalk new report titledNavigating the Cybersecurity Equation” underwritten by Cloudera, reveals that 81 percent of Feds say their agency is using big data analytics for cybersecurity in some capacity ; 53 percent are using it as a part of their overall cybersecurity strategy and 28 percent are using it in a limited capacity.

However, one can also observe that, breaches continue to afflict agencies with 59 percent of Feds reporting their agency deals with a cybersecurity compromise at least once a month due to their inability to fully analyze data.

The same study reveals that, in addition to obvious budget issues, Feds’ efforts are hindered by: lack of skilled personnel (40 percent), potential privacy concerns (27 percent), and lack of management support/awareness (26 percent). 

94 percent of Feds have plans to invest in big data analytics in the next two years with top planned investments in technology infrastructure (61 percent), hardware (52 percent), and business intelligence tools/analytics (52 percent).

4D Geographic Information System (GIS) data

It is interesting to observe that, vendors are focusing on the development of 4D GIS software. 4D GIS data includes 2D data, 3Ddata, and data regarding time change. An integrated database with real-time monitoring is required to generate 4D data. 
4DMapper is an Australia-based company that puts multi-source and multi-format geospatial data, including 3D and 4D GIS, on the cloud and streams it to browsers after rasterization and vectoring.
