The future is becoming increasingly connected to the web. Some techniques, such as data mining, are being used to harness this raw information to give insight into the future of cybersecurity. CIO brought this information to our attention in their article, “How big data can drive the future of cybersecurity.”

Big data has the potential to give us a real-world insight into various trends and key interest points within the population. When we properly analyze the data being produced, it allows us to be prepared with regards to security. It also gives us the ability to monitor and track systems contained within the cloud for irregularities and potential breaches.

Data security is as important as ever. An organization will be in a better position to respond quickly and successfully with good cyber threat intelligence. Protection, detection and response are the keys to cybersecurity, but they must be informed by intelligence about the threat.
