Gone are the days when weapons of mass destruction were atomic bombs. Now, weapons of mass destruction have evolved and today they can be deployed as simply as sending an email.The accumulation of data is increasing daily at an exponential rate and the high profile nature of data breaches can be extremely damaging for a company. Therefore, the ability of a business to protect its data is crucial for its survival.
Having the ability to identify threats to security as quickly as possible, either by detecting or fixing these threats is critical. The right tools are needed in these situations and advances in Big Data analytics are showing a promising reduction in combatting Cyberattacks and improving security as a whole.
To reiterate just how critical securing the online world will be, Varun Parikh, Manager, Sales Engineering at Sophos explained “40% of the worlds data will be stored in cloud data centres by 2023.” Further explaining, “Wherever you are logging in from, your connectivity must be secured.”
This gives rise to how vital Big data analysis is to fight against cyber-attacks and data breaches – both internal and external.
It is a potent tool for Cybersecurity and will only increase in effectiveness as its use becomes more sophisticated and is used alongside other technologies such as cloud computing, AI, and machine learning.
