Big data, defined by Tech Target as the "organization, administration and governance of large volumes of both structured and unstructured data," is more than a passing fancy. More than 60% of respondents to a recent SANS survey on analytics and intelligence believe big data will play some role in detection and investigation of data breaches.

SANS has since completed its survey on big data uses and risks. It examines how big data is being used, implemented and secured. The results will be shared in this webcast, along with best practices and advice. Attend this webcast and learn:

  • Types of sensitive data being collected and stored in big data deployments
  • Big data frameworks being used
  • Risks, threats and breaches in big data environments
  • Compliance concerns and best practices, including:
  • Ownership of big data and applications
  • Risk management controls around such systems
  • Shoring up access to sensitive data and controlling data usage
  • Encryption, masking and more
