As the digital oilfield continues to expand, so does the amount of data it generates, raising legitimate security concerns for companies seeking to integrate far-reaching data streams. Everyone has heard horror stories of cyber attacks affecting massive amounts of data. What you don’t hear so much about are the advantages that big data brings to security.

In this webinar, data science expert Dr. Priyadarshy explores some of those advantages – from how big data can actually facilitate better data governance, to how these larger and more complex datasets are yielding new insights from modeling techniques that have existed for years. As with any application, big-data analytics can reveal patterns and trends that form the basis for predictive models for use in real-time security monitoring. In this webinar, you will see that the ability to carry out predictive analytics on a consistent and ongoing basis is as great an advantage to cybersecurity as it is to the wider uses of data-driven approaches. In other words, the same big data that makes you vulnerable can actually make you secure.
