    Big Data Analytics in Cyber Defense – A Groundbreaking Study by the Ponemon Institute

    This study confirms that traditional solutions, which continue to fall short, can be enhanced with big data analytics.

  • Cybercrime costs $118 billion annually and takes an average of 18 days to resolve at a cost of nearly $416,000 over those 18 days—and those figures are expected to grow as cyber attacks continue to increase. Fortunately, tools and techniques now exist to handle the volume and complexity of today’s cyber attacks, enabling enterprises to stay ahead of evolving threats. Combining big data analytics with security technologies yields a stronger defense posture. Big security analytics provide high-speed, automated analysis to bring network activity into clear focus to detect and stop threats, and shorten the time to remediation when attacks occur.

    In one respect, conventional wisdom is right. Federal agencies at an operational level aren’t keeping up with big data and will continue to fall behind – as long as they continue to rely on conventional tools and methodologies to protect themselves. Fortunately, new tools apply “big analytics” to handle the volume and complexity of today’s IP network data to help the federal government keep ahead of existing, new and emerging threats and:

    • Extract actionable insights and deliver the right ones to the right people in time to make a difference.
    • Handle multiplying, diverse and overlapping avalanches of structured and unstructured data.
    • Maximize resource efficiency and improve secure collaboration and productivity.
    • Avoid data redundancy and improve data quality and re-use.
    • Improve end results for both users and those who rely upon them

    • a solution for Cyber Security that enables the CISO to integrate all material InfoSec, network/communication, production data and activity logs for network Visibility through Cyber Data Analytics at Near-Real-Time speed
    • better, faster, actionable security information – shrinking the critical time from detection to remediation enabling cyber warfare specialists to proactively defend and protect your network 


    The first step in getting started is around collecting and aggregating security data. Think about the overall environment and the systems in place, and their role in the organization from a risk assessment perspective— what are the most important systems and data to protect first. Taking a risk-based approach of which systems need to be monitored first means beginning by collecting data that affects those systems.

    The second step is to work with the aggregated data to develop context. When there is an incident, information must be found that’s helpful to the security professional. If data is in one place, a link analysis or a path analysis can be done, and data can be queried across multiple dimensions on demand.

  • “Cyber attacks are getting worse but only 20 percent say their organizations are more effective at stopping them. Greatest areas of cyber security risk are caused by mobility, lack of visibility and multiple global interconnected network systems.”
