The use of big data and machine learning to detect and predict security threats is a growing trend, with interest from financial institutions, telecommunications providers, healthcare companies, and governments alike. Eddie Garcia explores how companies are using Apache Hadoop-based approaches to protect their organizations and explains how Apache Spot (incubating)—an Apache-licensed open source project that uses Apache Hadoop and machine learning for network security analytics—is tackling this challenge head-on. Join Eddie to understand how the future of cybersecurity will converge on open data models and the new machine-learning techniques required to protect organizations from the evolving and growing cybersecurity landscape.
