Polic Presents at CISO Europe Summit

Polic at CISO Europe

On May 11 2016, Viktor Polic, adjunct faculty in the Computer Science department at Webster Geneva Campus, presented his case study, "Using Big Data Analytics for Information Security Risk Management Decision Support," at the CISO Europe Summit in Copenhagen. This study explained how information security related key risk indicators depend on heterogeneous data sources, high data volumes and high data velocity, and how large organizations with international presence and with combined internal and outsourced IT services are challenged with balancing risk monitoring scope with related costs. The case study presented a possible approach to cost optimization by using combined proprietary and open-source software solutions for big data analytics using commodity hardware. It also explored how some challenges such as finding and hiring people with right skills, establishing partnerships and collaboration are important.
