Understanding the Legal Framework for Using Big Data Approaches in Security Analytics

  • TYPE: Workshop DATE: Friday, May 16, 2014 TIME: 09:00-12:30 LOCATION: AMMERSEE I
Friday Workshops

In the age of the extended, connected enterprise, preventive security solutions such as firewalls are not enough anymore to protect against nowadays threats, because many attacks aiming at industrial espionage originate from well funded (governmental) institutions and therefore are sophisticated enough to not being stoppable by traditional security methods. It therefore is becoming more and more vital to detect attacks while they are being conducted by monitoring the whole network traffic, and to properly react if such a breach occurs.

Monitoring and analyzing parts of or the complete network traffic is regulated by privacy, telecommunication and criminal laws in all EC and most other countries. In this Workshop, KuppingerCole´s privacy expert Dr. Karsten Kinast, LL.M will discuss with you a number of security analytics and usage of big data in security use cases, which you will propose, to find out whether they comply with EC and local regulation. During this workshop, you will create a checklist which will help you to avoid legal implications when moving into deep security analytics.
