The 2014 Big Picture on Cyber Security

Because of the changing threat environment and the need for continuous network monitoring, cybersecurity has become a data analysis activity. A big data problem. CIOs, security officers and program managers concerned with the integrity of systems must find a way to integrate data coming in from perimeter appliances, network logs, and a variety of security information and event management (SIEM) tools.

This panel will explore ways federal agencies are dealing with the big data and analysis challenges of today's cybersecurity environment.
