Big data comes in all shapes and sizes and managing data always requires a secure approach. A well-executed cybersecurity program closely resembles a big data problem in the challenges it creates.
How does data volume, velocity and complexity impact the ability to do cyber? How can an agency’s infrastructure get in the way of cybersecurity? And what is the greatest inhibitor to cyber?
With a fractured infrastructure, an agency is plagued with a slow response time. If they are dealing in siloes, they are unable to share the data in a flexible, open manner. And if the infrastructure is not capable of dealing with this large amount of data, then even the best laid plans do not amount to anything.
There are several issues impacting data within cybersecurity environments, but in order to combat these cybersecurity issues, an agency needs an infrastructure that is:
Let’s move away from siloed, proprietary solutions and towards open, flexible environments.
