Keynote Review and Preview

“Protection in a Converging World” was the leading theme in this morning's keynote. From Francis deSouza's opening keynote, focusing on the growing threat vectors, to Greg Day outlining the four stages of Cyber Intelligence, with the help of Time Warner's CISO, Tammy Moskites, the importance of leveraging an information-centric model was emphasized.

They say that necessity is the mother of invention, and the necessity to defend large organizations against new IT security threats has spawned a staggering array of security tools. The sheer amount of data being generated by these tools is creating a “big data” problem for many enterprise security teams.

In a recent survey by the Enterprise Strategy Group, 86 percent of enterprises indicated that they were collecting more data than they did two years ago, with half of those collecting “substantially” more. In such an environment, critical security issues and the key actions required to address them are often hidden in plain sight.
