Securing Big Data from the Inside Out

Understanding big data and securing the data that matters.

There is a persistent strategy where organizations approach their big data security by attempting to detect and stop threat actors at the edge of their network. This is the wrong approach. Cybersecurity should be an inside-out strategy. Many business executives understand this. However, the security industry has yet to align in a way that makes it easier for organizations to defend their data from the inside out.

Successful cybersecurity criminals always have a target. The most capable threat actors are only targeting a small percentage of your network – email servers, customer information, intellectual property and places where regulated data are stored. This makes an inside-out strategy imperative to understanding which areas of your network are most vulnerable to attack.
