Excerpts from Art Coviello’s keynote today at the 2013 RSA Conference in San Francisco.
We are at a critical crossroads – the next phase in the evolution of the Information Age with this convergence of Big Data, mobility, cloud, and our social media-driven society. It is past time for us to disenthrall ourselves from the reactive and perimeter-based IT security dogmas of the past and speed adoption of intelligence-driven security. Requirements for this new model include a thorough understanding of risk, the use of agile controls based on pattern recognition and predictive analytics to replace outdated static controls and the ability to analyze vast streams of data from numerous sources to produce actionable information.
What results is a model based on “Big Data” – our own version of security Big Data.
