Focusing on Data Security at Data Summit 2017

Data Summit 2017 will take a deep dive into these considerations during the Data Security Forum moderated by IOUG SELECT Editor, Michelle Malcher, security architect at Extreme Scale Solutions. The event takes place May 16-17  at the New York Hilton Midtown, with pre-conference workshops on May 15.

It is important that the Data Security Forum is part of the Data Summit so that it can be part of the larger conversation about leveraging big data, said Malcher.  

A key issue that companies must address is the potential for greater use of analytics for proactive detection of threats and anomalous behavior. Analytics tools can be put to use to scrutinize not just database data but also network data, said Malcher. “It is basically just an extension of business intelligence to what I call ‘security intelligence’ and this is an area that has not gotten as much attention as you would think."
