    Secure Your Big Data in the Cloud

    in Technology

    As your big data initiative scales toward even bigger data, the odds are that the cloud will play a critical role in your strategy, whether for storage or as the home for your analytics applications. How can you trust the cloud to keep your data secure and to protect the privacy of your customers and partners?

    Trust in the cloud has been growing as the concept has evolved, but cloud-based providers and your own organization can do more to ensure that the cloud is a secure environment for your data. Some of that work is being done by the Big Data Working Group of the Cloud Security Alliance.

    Working group co-chair Wilco Van Ginkel, who is security strategist for Verizon Enterprise, joins All Analytics Radio to discuss the efforts to identify scalable techniques for data-centric security and privacy problems. The working group's goal is to crystallize best practices for security and privacy in big data, and to help industry and government organizations coordinate the development of big data security and privacy standards.

    Van Ginkel will be available to address your questions and concerns and share his advice on building out a secure big data strategy in the cloud.

    In this event you will learn:

    About the progress that the cloud sector and its customers have made in building a secure environment
    About some of the best practices for enterprises that the Cloud Security Alliance has already identified
    What types of big data applications are ready for everyday life in the cloud
    How security and privacy protections in the cloud environment may evolve in the year or so to come

    Join the All Analytics community on Thursday, February 26, at 2 pm (ET), and bring your questions for Wilco Van Ginkel.

    Big Data, Decisions & the Simulated Experience

    in Technology

    In this age of big data and analytics, one of the problems that we face is that our ability to communicate and understand statistical outcomes has not advanced as rapidly as our proficiency in handling data. There's plenty of data but not enough understanding. Yet, we can better understand complex matters when we can experience them.

    Simulated experience lets us do just that, for example, showing us how our retirement investments will play out when we really need them. Robin Hogarth, an emeritus professor at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, along with fellow researcher Emre Soyer, explained how simulated experience can help us to make better use of big data analytics in a recent MIT Sloan Management Review article.

    Now, Hogarth is joining the All Analytics community for the next episode of A2 Radio on Tuesday, Feb. 3, at 2 pm (ET) to discuss how enterprise analytics teams can make use of simulated experience in delivering data to their clients, helping those clients make better decisions.

    In this A2 Radio Show you will learn:

    About some of the ways that simulated experience has been used in society and in enterprise environments.
    The types of applications where simulated experience can bring benefits and better decision making to your organization.
    Why we need to "experience" complex data rather than just analyzing it.

    Using Data and Analytics to Drive Big Decisions

    in Technology

    Discover how to make your biggest decisions better with the use of data and analytics.

    Running an enterprise means constantly making thousands of decisions. Depending on their complexity and the maturity of your data projects, some of those decisions are even being driven by data. But are you ready to make the really big, complex decisions using data? Are you ready to make billion dollar decisions? Can you map your future and feel confident that the decisions you are making come not simply from management intuition but sound data and analytics?

    PwC’s new report, Guts & Gigabytes: Capitalizing on the Art and Science in Decision Making, shows that many companies are using data to make the day-to-day decisions of running the business, but few are using it to inform their strategic decisions. During this episode, Dan DiFilippo, PwC’s Global & US Data and Analytics Leader, will share the lessons from this report on how enterprises can make better use of data projects to bring data and analytics to intuition and experience.

    Tune in on Monday, November 10, at 2 pm, to learn about:

    Learning to use analytics to lead in the future
    The anatomy of big decisions
    The art of decision making powered by science

    Is Big Data a Big Danger?

    in Internet

    You have all heard about the hacking of big box retailer Target with the resulting loss of 40 million credit card numbers.  However, what you may not be aware of is the fact the FBI is warning companies that deal in terabytes of consumer data that 2014 is shaping up to be a year fraught with peril. Many large companies are expected to be systematically targeted by international hacker collectives.  In fact, a number of other companies and countries revealed that their data had been compromised to some degree in 2013, including such notables as Neiman Marcus, as well retailers in Germany and South Korea. 

    What makes these breaches particularly galling is not only the scopes of the penetration, but also the fact that hackers are able to blatantly offer sophisticated hacking tools for sale on the open market. Sources believe that the Target security breach was perpetrated by hackers who used malware purchased from a pair of Russian teens.

    The real danger is the fact that not only is credit card information contained in these systems, but also is a tidal wave of other sensitive consumer information. Since data mining has become so endemic and identity theft has become such a problem for so many consumers, the question comes down to whether companies whom collect this information without your consent can be held liable if they are unable to protect it?
