Big data is making big inroads into global enterprises – for good reason. According to a study by Accenture, 92% of the organisations that have implemented a big data initiative are generating outstanding results. The vast majority believe that utilising big data not only gives them a competitive edge, it’s revolutionising their businesses just as the internet did. It’s driving a new wave of predictive analytics that enable greater insights into customer buying patterns, reengineering products analysing risk, reducing system maintenance costs and more.

Along with all the benefits, big data also comes with big responsibilities.  

According to an article in Forbes, protecting big data from intrusion and corruption is a major issue.  Standard SIEM (security information and event management) technologies weren’t designed to handle big data security problems. In just one example, the financial services giant Barclays now has more than 44 billion security events a month, according to Stephen Gailey, former group head of Barclays’ security services. Building and managing a big data infrastructure is also costly, requiring a large, upfront capital expense, plus the ongoing costs of maintaining, updating and staffing an in-house data centre.
