International Conference of Big Data in Cyber Security


The world is moving towards Big Data, and Cyber Security is one of leading applications of this, where events are tracked across a network infrastructure. Along with this the threats to organisations increase by the day, and many organisations have moved towards the integration of SIEM (Secure Incident and Event Management) to detect malicious activity.

This event is hosted by The Cyber Academy, in collaboration with HP and ISACA, and aims to investigate best practice within industry and look to future infrastructures of Big Data for the benefit of organisations in not only monitoring security events, but also in the automated generation of auditing information and business analytics.
