Storied, beautiful Edinburgh, Scotland hosted the EMEA Congress of the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) in September 2013. CSA’s Big Data Working Group released its 2013 Big Data for Security Intelligence report at this gathering. The new research offering outlines “how the landscape of security analytics is changing with the introduction” of Big Data tools, as well as the differences from traditional security analytics.
“The goal of Big Data analytics for security is to obtain actionable intelligence in real time,” said Alvaro Cardenas, lead author of the report in the CSA press release. “Although Big Data analytics holds significant promise, there are a number of challenges that must be overcome to realize its true potential. We have only just begun, but are anxious to move forward in helping the industry understand its potential with new research directions in Big Data security.”
