Banks are now shelling out millions of euros in […]

Big Data for Cybersecurity Modern information security encompass broader data sets than in the past, in order to create context and generate a complete picture of network data, user behaviour pattern and business data  – all combined together so that a trendline of normal operations can be created.

I decided to take a break from my Cybersecurity Architecture series and CISO’s View series to give my thoughts on this year’s RSA conference while things are still fresh.  First off, I enjoyed meeting with old colleagues and many security people that I respect which justified the trip as far as I’m concerned.  I’m really amazed […]

Welcome back to my blog series, the CISO’s View.  In my last article, CISO’s View: Why an integrated approach matters, I stirred up the waters a bit by stating that the CISO’s first and most fundamental job is taking all this security data, threats, vulnerabilities, policy violations, and transforming it into business language that shows […]
