Avoiding Data Breaches and Managing Big Data

Oct 09, 2013 by Mike Small

Today information is the foundation upon which businesses are built and organizations need to prosper.  However, given its value, information is not treated with sufficient respect by everyone in the organization.  It sometimes seems that the only people that understand the value of information are those who are trying to steal it!

Big data makes this problem worse - in addition to the vast quantity of data from the Internet of Things and social media, so much unstructured information is now being created within organizations.  Who owns this data and who is responsible for its security?

I believe that what is needed is better information stewardship.  Information Stewardship is the holistic concept beyond Information Security which is based on the idea of taking care of to look after property that is not your own.  Information stewardship involves everyone who creates information not just the application owners or the IT service provider.

I will be presenting a session this subject at RSA Europe on October 29th.

You can listen to a short podcast preview of this session.

Analytics
There is now an enormous quantity of data which is being generated in a wide variety of forms. However this data, in itself, has little meaning or value; it needs interpretation to make it useful. Analytics are the tools, techniques and technologies that can be used to analyze this data into information with value. These analytics are now being widely adopted by organizations to improve their performance. However what are the security and governance aspects of the use of these tools?
