Executive Quotes:William H. Stewart, Senior Vice President, Booz Allen Hamilton "The game is changing. More and more data is going onto the Internet in automated forms, and that vector will continue. Therefore, a security analysis tool that worked great two or three years ago doesn't work so well anymore. You now have to look through a whole lot more data, and you have to look for threats that are far more subtle. Commercial tools are changing to take advantage of these Big Data streams coming online." Eddie Schwartz, Chief Information Security Officer, RSA, The Security Division of EMC "In the coming year, top-tier enterprises with progressive security capabilities will adopt intelligence-driven security models based on Big Data analytics. Over the next two to three years, this security model will become a way of life." Sam Curry, Chief Technology Officer, Identity and Data Protection, Chief Technologist, RSA, The Security Division of EMC "Big Data is changing the nature and addressing the limitations of conventional security controls such as signature-based anti-malware and firewalls as well as rules-based identity and access management tools. Big Data is being applied in new ways to enable security controls that are adaptive, risk-based and self-learning so that security is continuously evaluated and the level of protection is automatically adjusted based on changing environmental and risk conditions. The discovery of and response to threats and fraud therefore can become more predictive as a richer view of user identities and complex data flows comes together to give a data-driven perspective of what normal versus aberrant behavior looks like."
