Needle in a Datastack: The rise of big security data




Needle in a Datastack,  investigates how well organisations are positioned to address the challenges of managing security in a world of ever increasing amounts and types of data.


The research, from McAfee, based on interviews with 500 senior IT decision makers, highlights the scale of the challenge but also the business imperative of spotting and managing anomalous and potentially dangerous activity amid the colossal amounts of data traffic.


Findings include:

  • The average time taken to detect an actual breach was 14 hours.
  • Only 14 % could identify the source of a breach within minutes, while 33 % said it took a day and 16 % a week.
  • Organisations store approximately 11-15 terabytes of data a week but 58 %of firms store this data for just three month.
