Big data, analytics, and cyber security – Threat or opportunity?

Big data consists of extremely large data sets that may be analysed computationally to reveal patterns, trends and associations – especially those relating to human behaviour and interactions. It can be argued that oil is no longer the world’s most valuable currency. Now, it’s data.

With data breaches occurring almost daily and millions of dollars in financial penalties issued due to leaks, hacks and improper handling, organisations need to ask the question: is big data a threat or an opportunity? In this presentation, Frangie will cover the 10 critical “V’s of big data”, along with tips and guidance on how to secure your information.
